The Great Manchester City Games and the Great Manchester Junior Run gave opportunities for Bury athletes to meet some of their sporting heroes. A number worked on the City Games to help the internationals with their kit, before and after competition. The picture below shows some of our youngsters with American sprinter Allyson Felix.

Erin Kenyon and Charlotte Speakman-Farnworth enjoyed meeting Sir Mo Farah after they had competed in the junior run.
