Success at English Schools Track & Field

Many congratulations to Macclesfield Harriers Katie Lowery and Danielle Wallis for their excellent performances at the prestigious English Schools Track and Field Championships earlier this month. 
Katie took the silver medal in the 1500m Junior Girls race setting new personal best times by some margin in both the heat and the final of the event which was held in Birmingham on 5th and 6th of July.  Katie's time in the final of 4mins 33.73 secs moved her to 3rd on the UK rankings list in her age group, which is a fantastic achievement. 
In Danielle's final year, she secured her highest placing ever in these championships with a silver medal in the Senior Girls 1500m steeplechase event, also in a personal best time of 5mins 04.41 secs.  These are the best female Macclesfield Harriers performances ever at these championships and we look forward to continued success from both girls.
