Manx Harriers in action at the European Masters Championships

Manx Harriers Marie Jackson and Caroline Mayers were in action at the European Masters Championships in Aarhus, Denmark from 27 July-6 August 2017.

Caroline was entered in the 1500m and 5000m in the W45 age group and Marie competed in the 10km road walk in the W55 age group.

Caroline finished 10th and first Brit in the 1500m final in 5.06.01 and was 9th in the 5000m in 19.20.34 in stifling humid conditions.

Marie also had a fantastic race, being one of only 2 athletes to finish inside the hour for the 10km walk.  The Italian winner Peppina Demartis recorded an impressive 56.42, while Marie finished in silver medal position with 59.02 and with Fiona Bishop finished top team.

Congratulations to both athletes.
