More success for Macclesfield Harriers in Indoor Championships

Many congratulations to new member Hilary West who gained a silver and bronze medal at the British Masters Indoor Championships at Lee Valley last weekend.  Hilary won silver in the W55 400m in a time of 76.48 secs and a bronze in the 200m in 33.87secs, setting a club record in the 200m.  Hilary also finished 4th in the 800m in another club age group record time of 2 min 53.91s.  We look forward to welcoming Hilary to the track team in the summer and hope her performances will inspire others to try out some new track events.
