WRC hails 5-milers

haleA select group of WRC members headed over to the local Hale Village 5-miler on Easter Sunday. The race was making a welcome return to the calendar after some time away.

The event was the latest in the BTR race series and followed on from last weekend’s half marathon in Liverpool.

The small event attracted a field of just 341 runners (of all abilities) and it was Mike Metcalfe who led the WRC bunch home in an outstanding time of 29:24 to finish in fifteenth place overall.

David Flanagan also impressed, coming home in 34:39, whilst Tony Tonks (40:56), Sue Flanagan (44:03) and Hayley Staunton (45:10) also represented the club with honour.
