Northern Relay Success

On Saturday 24 September, the Northern Road Relays took place at SportsCity in Manchester. The U15 Preston Harriers team two of which were U14 KGS pupils, Darcey Lonsdale and Lucy Treaddell, secured a bronze medal at the North of England Road Relay event. The 3.1km road course played host to 115 athletes from the best athletic clubs in the region.

In the 3.1km course, Darcey came home in 10:29 and secured the 8th fastest leg across all runners, and the 2nd fastest Year 9 leg behind a runner from Macclesfield and Lucy finished the Stage 3 leg in 10:56. The team will now compete at the National Road Relays at Sutton Park.

Jake Lonsdale recently competed at Senior Mens level in the North West Counties Relays where he was placed a fantastic 18th out of 350 Men over the 7km course.
