Northern Road Relays

Saturday, 16th September 2017

SportCity was once again the setting for the Northern Athletics 6-Stage, 4-Stage and 3-Stage relays – the regional road championships. Post-race disqualifications seemed to be a prominent feature of this year’s edition, but Bolton was not affected in any categories and laddered up. The senior men followed up their strong showing in the County road relays, with the A team finishing in the top 10% and qualifying for the nationals.
