HATTIE Vaughan was Bury AC’s only competitor in the North of England Track and Field Championships held last weekend in Manchester’s SportCity and she performed well.

She certainly had a busy weekend, competing in four different events in the under-20 women’s age category.

She missed out on setting a new lifetime best performance in her 100m heat by just 0.03 of a second, taking sixth place in 13.08secs.

There was a sixth place in the shot with a best putt of 8.10, a seventh spot in the long jump with a best effort of 5.18 and eighth in the javelin with a furthest throw of 21.71.

Byron Edwards made the trip to Hull to compete in the Asda Foundation Half Marathon on Sunday.

It is not the fastest of courses, but he produced an impressive time of 1:17:20, but more importantly, his third place in the V45 age category qualifies him for the England age-group half marathon team – a fantastic achievement.

Bury AC members Oliver Makinson and Marcus Dey were in Weert in Holland at the weekend competing for the Great Britain Junior Team in the European Triathlon Championships.

Dey was forced to pull out in the final run section, however Makinson had a brilliant performance, finishing 13th overall in 49:57 – just 53 seconds behind the winner.

Makinson was the first GB finisher and is crafting a great reputation for himself in the event.

Another Bury AC member to produce a brilliant triathlon performance was Tony Cullen, competing in the Deva English Middle Distance Championships.

He surpassed his own expectations by finishing as the overall winner in a total time of 3:56:44 – more than three minutes clear of the runner-up.

The bike element of the competition proved to be his strongest for some time and it gives him a significant boost ahead of July’s Ironman UK event in Bolton.
