Sunday 20th May – Bupa Great Manchester Run

Report from OAC’s Racheal Bamford:

“I had an incredible experience competing for the North of England in the Bupa Great Manchester Run 10km elite women’s race.

I finished twelfth overall (35.20), results from and coverage from BBC iPlayer from about 11.30 minutes in, I’m on the right in a yellow vest!”.

More information also from Racheal’s blog.

Report by Rob Cameron, the North of England Men’s Team Manager, from Northern Athletics highlights how Racheal led home the North’s Ladies Team to first place in the inter area competition.

The race was won by Haile Gebrselassie (Ethiopia) in 27.39 and Linet Masai (Kenya) in 31.35.
