Skanco sponsored athlete, Rachael Franklin, continues to astound us with her hard work and determination throughout February.
Rachael started the month with the Ramsey Fireman’s run, breaking her own women’s record for the race. It’s a tough 5 mile run consisting of three laps around Ramsey on public roads, after a good winter training program it’s a great indication of the form Rachael is in.
Next up was the English National Cross Country championship held in Leeds where she finished 24th out of a massive field of 1,000 runners, a brilliant result!
If all that wasn’t enough Rachael finished the month with a nomination for Isle of Man Sportswoman of the Year for her sport achievements in 2018, the awards ceremony is to be held in April and will be a great showcase of Manx sporting talent.
Well done Rachael, and congratulations on the well deserved nomination!
