THERE were wins on the trails and roads of Rivington for Radcliffe Athletic Club members at the Ian Hesketh Memorial Duathlon.

A trio of runners took part in the event which comprises a 25k bike ride sandwiched by two 5k trail runs – with the option of entering individually or as a relay team.

Radcliffe’s Craig Norman and his brother Karl were the winning team, clocking a combined time of 1hr 23mins 19secs. Craig completed the runs in 20:58 and 21:55 respectively, while Karl finished the bike ride in 40:26.

Lee Cooper was 22nd in 1:36:40. His times were 24:30 (run one), 45:47 (cycle) and 26:23 (run two).

Paula Abernethy clocked 1:48:28 to finish first VW50 and 34th overall in 1:48:28, with times of 26:38 (run one), 54:06 (cycle) and 27:44 (run two).

There was more sibling success for Radcliffe AC juniors Harley and Francesca Porter who took part in the Great Manchester Run 2.5k.
