Radcliffe Athletic Club members took on a local 20-mile challenge last weekend.

The club had several representatives at The Village Link Challenge, a loop of six Bury villages: Nangreaves, Holcombe, Hawkshaw, Affetside, Ainsworth and Greenmount.

The event was organised by Bury’s Sunnywood Project and started and finished in Burrs Country Park. Participants could walk or run, and the RAC members involved were Laura Aiken, Lisa Antrobus, Katy Chaplin, Stephen Crowe, Mia Derbyshire, Neil Greenhalgh, Emma Horner, Charlene Leyden, Neil Naisbitt, Louise Shield, Paul Stevens, Mark Taylor and Emma Wolstencroft.

Amy Brough-Aiken travelled to Nottingham for the Pierrepont Plod.

Runners had six hours to complete as many 5.44km loops as possible in Holme Pierrepont Country Park and she completed eight totalling 44.3k, the distance of a marathon.

On the roads, Mark Garner set a great personal-best time of 1hr 35mins 43secs at Wilmslow Half-Marathon, part of Sunday’s Wilmslow Running Festival. Lucie Tighe ran 58:26 in the festival’s 10k race and son Benji clocked 15:14 in the 2.5k.

Meanwhile, Andy Wheeler ran 36:26 at Bernie’s 5k on the paths around Moor Park in Preston.

The cancellation of Heaton Parkrun saw a large RAC contingent travel to Peel, in Salford. Rob Shiels was the club’s first finisher in 19:29 followed by junior Robbie Parkinson who set a new PB of 21:27
