Tuesday 7th August – Northern Athletics Women Steeplechase Championships

OAC’s Racheal Bamford reports from the Trafford Grand Prix in Stretford:

Despite face planting the penultimate water jump (not far off this technique on youtube), I managed to win the Northern 2km Steeplechase Championships in 7:02.43!

    Racheal, sorry for the delayed comment but fantastic win and the way you lead from start to finish, just amazing, so great to see you and the OAC vest out there at the front in such a meet. Don’t worry about your little incident at 5:10 on the race video, nobody will notice it. And besides, you’re a top triathlete and the temptation to go for extra swimming practice must have been large in your subconscious…
