Northern Athletics Road Relays Sept ’16

Sport City Manchester was the venue for the Autumn 2016 6 & 4 Stage Road Relays. Fielding a slightly more modest number of runners than usual, we were still able to enter five teams at this autumn showpiece event.

The Ladies Relays

It quickly got busier out on the circuit once the Ladies started at 2.15pm. Again 12 athletes but three teams due to the four leg race format.

Big congratulations to all Harriers who took part, from Relays debutants to seasoned campaigners everyone agreed it was a fantastic event. The next one is in March – the larger format of 12 stage Mens and 6 stage Ladies so even more opportunity for everyone to be involved. Who knows it might even be held in Wigan!

Many thanks to Ian Yates for doing such a fantastic job with event photography.
