Radcliffe AC members were out in force at the Great Manchester Run.

The story of the weekend for Radcliffe must go to husband-and-wife pair Dominic and Sara Parry. After bagging a fantastic new personal best in the Manchester Half Marathon (1hr 40mins 12secs), Dominic made his way back to the start line to pace Sara to a new PB of her own, clocking 1:16:34 in the 10km distance.

Alex Field was first home for Radcliffe in the Manchester Half Marathon, with a time of 1:38:48, followed by another husband-and-wife pair Brennan Tighe, who also got a new PB with 2:20:13, and Lucie Tighe, in 2:20:14.

In the 10k, Gary Adkins was first to cross the line for Radcliffe, with another new PB of 37:25. Also running in the yellow and black of Radcliffe was Helen Kay (1:07:09) and Bev Quinton (1:18:13).

The Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run was well attended by Radcliffe’s juniors. In a time of 12:56, Oliver was first to finish on the 2.5k distance. He was followed by Isaac (15:15), Grace (16:41), Heidi (17:25), Skyler (19:03), Poppy (19:10), and Aoife (20:57), while Benji ran the the 1.6km mini race in a time of 11:13.

Further afield, there were three Radcliffe runners taking part in the midweek Quarry Bank Trail race, an undulating 10km. Ken Smith was the first finisher for Radcliffe in 53:23, followed by Kath Biddle (57:20), and Laura Aiken, in 1:03:03.

Biddle also took on the Whinlatter Half Marathon on the weekend, which includes 2,582 feet of climbing through forest trails. She finished in a time of 2:34:59.

Elsewhere, Rob Shiels ran the Pilling 10k, coming 17th out of 50 runners in 44:42.
