In the same race selected for the England masters V50 team Chris Swire finished 11th in his age category with a solid 83.16. Michelle Vaughan ran a very impressive 18.58 in the Platt Fields Parkrun on Saturday. An eye popping 88.4% age grade score and a course record. No V50 female has ever ran faster on that course.

The Greater Manchester Track & Field Championships also took place this weekend. Darren Smith ran a huge 40 second PB in the 3000m with 10.25 to take the Senior gold medal (more results from this event below). Finally the huge improvement for Sam Mabbott continues with a very impressive 19.25 at Parkrun.
