TO THE MOUNTAINS AND BACK AGAIN. Report by Matt Crehan
Saturday saw three of the slightly more mad St. Helens Sutton A.C. members take on the challenging 22 mile race across the Yorkshire Peaks taking in a total of 4500ft of ascent. Starting in the early morning at Mytholmyrod, Greg Carns, Sonya Monoghan, and Chris Reid, set off circling the Yorkshire town of Hebden Bridge with a great had by all as the team finished in 5 hours 26 minutes.
Sunday saw the Finals of the Sports Hall Athletics League and a great group of St. Helens Sutton A.C. juniors took part making both the club and parents proud. Lewis Dunn had a busy day as the U13 Boy in the team scoring an impressive 74 points across a range of running, jumping and throwing events. The girls team had a fantastic day finishing third overall and receiving an invite to represent Merseyside in the Regional Finals next Month.
