Five Warrington athletic Club athletes travelled to Sportcity Manchester over the weekend 11-12th June for the senior and under 20 North of England Championships returning with 1 Gold and 1 Bronze Medal.
In the senior events James Webster won the 400 metres hurdles recording a time of 53.29 seconds while in the 1500 metres Matt Wigelsworth ran well in his heat to qualify in 2nd place for the final with a time of 3 minutes 58.80 seconds but was unable to produce a similar run in the final finishing 10th in 4 minutes 05.61 seconds.There may have been a further medal in the 400 metres where James Gladman won his heat in 47.79 seconds despite his blocks slipping at the start.James withdrew from the final rather than risk injury as his calf muscle tightened up.
In the under 20 events Chris Fance took the Bronze Medal in the Men’s 1500 metres with a time of 4 minutes 02.30 seconds while in the Women’s 800 metres Katie Lowery finished in 4th place with 2 minutes 13.82 seconds.
