Emma Bradley makes her mark on 2020

13 year old Super Athlete, Emma Bradley has been busy already in 2020. Emma trains with Neil Thomson Swimming at Nye Bevan every Thursday and was highly successful in running and athletics events in 2019.

This January, Emma had the honour of representing Wigan at the Greater Manchester Schools Cross Country Championships.

Emma has a great attitude to training and racing and I foresee a highly successful year ahead for her in 2020.

Emma Bradley, aged 12, gained 3rd place in the LowGill Fell Race, then earned 1st place in the 2nd race of the Jubilee race series at Horwich.

Emma’s time of 5 minutes 57 seconds is a new girls and ladies club record for the 1 mile run.

Mad Dog 10km, Southport

New Club 10km Run Record

Well done to Chris Millington, who set a new West Lancs Tri Club 10km running Record this month!

Chris set a new record time of 35 minutes and 53 seconds in the Ormskirk 10km Road Race on the 23rd September 2018, eclipsing the old time set by Mark Howard, which had stood for a very long time.

The icing on the cake was that Chris came 2nd in the Ormskirk 10km against a high calibre local field.

Mike Gall recorded the fastest park run at Ormskirk in a time of 18 minutes 40 seconds on 30th June. This is our fastest park run ever and is close to our club record of 17.52 by Mark Howard.
