Junior Manchester Run (Great North Run Series) 20th May 2012

Birtley Athlete Lewis Morgan finished 3rd in the Manchester Junior run on Sunday 20th May in the Under 15 boys category. With a field of nearly 100 athletes made up with a strong contingent of athletes from clubs in the North West inc Sale and Stockport, it was great to see a Birtley vest on the Podium. Lewis who couldnt make the 2nd fixture of the Athletics season at Middlesboro was determined to put Birtley on the Map in the North West. World record-holder Patrick Makau presented Lewis with his trophy. Although he is the current World record holder he wasn’t selected for Kenya’s Olympic team after he failed to finish the London Marathon. Makau was not among the final six men and women chosen by Athletics Kenya on Wednesday for the London Games. (They must have a fantastic team for the Olympics).
