BMC Grand Prix, Sportcity.

The BMC Grand Prix races were held at Sportcity, Manchester on Saturday 1st June. There was a high level of competition with many athletes trying to gain qualifying times for the European U23's/U20's or World Youth's.

The Leicester Coritanian athletes who competed gave a good account of themselves, with their times only just being outside their personal or season's best times.

Ella Shirley U17w ran a personal best time in the 1500m to knock three seconds from her previous best. Her time of 4:45.34 was particularly pleasing for her because she had been targeting the English School's qualifying time.

Full results:

800m
Johnny Monk U20 men 1:54.83 8th place 'D' race
Mari Smith U17w 2:10.84 7th place 'B' race
Caelidh Ross U17w 2:11.27 7th place 'C' race

1500m
Ella Shirley U17w 4:45.34 9th place 'D' race
