Sheffield University student Steven Bayton was an impressive winner of the opening Up and Running South Yorkshire Cross Country League fixture at Mount St Mary College, Spinkhill yesterday.

Bayton got the better of a close race with Doncaster’s Bertie Houghton, both well clear of the chasing pack. Third was another University student, Will Mycroft.

A record 198 finished the race with the women’s field, 147, also a record for the league. Here Robyn Lanceley ran a strong race to win by 21 seconds from University student Rachael Lundgren, confirming her recent good form in road relays for her club, Rotherham.

There were some impressive performances in the younger age groups, none moreso than Alfie Manthorpe’s win in the under 15 age group. The City of Sheffield runner had 30 seconds to spare over his rivals.
