Athletics Series 3 – York 15 June 2019
Last Saturday we were in York for the third event in our Athletics Series. It was our biggest entry so far this season and the sun was shining after a week of bad weather. It was great to see so many races on the track with a full list of competitors, both in Ambulant and RaceRunning events. The field programme saw the largest range of events this season so far. The support from family and friends for all the competitors was fantastic and provided a great atmosphere for the event. As always the officials were professional and friendly in their managing of the programme and the provision of their expertise. We would like to take the opportunity to thank them, our volunteers from the local Freemasons chapter and volunteers from York City Athletics Club. We could not run these events without their support. Our last event of the series is in Derby at Moorways Stadium on Saturday 10 August – there is still time to enter, and we will be finishing off the season with our National Championships in Doncaster on Saturday 21 September. We look forward to seeing you there.
Athletics Series 2 – Stoke Mandeville 11 May 2019
On Saturday we held our second Athletics Series event at the Stoke Mandeville Stadium and welcomed 30 athletes and their supporters to the event. We were lucky with mostly sunshine on the day which helped many athletes achieve either season’s bests or PBs – well done to all. We were pleased to welcome a number of new athletes to the meet in RaceRunning, Ambulant Running and Seated Throws, it was great to see them competing with us for the first time. It was a fantastic day and we would like to thank all the athletes for competing so well and their families and supporters for looking after them so well. We could not run these events without the expertise and hard work of our officials and volunteers – Thank You. We look forward to seeing everyone at our 3rd event in York on 15 June 2019.
Athletics Series 1 – St. Albans 13 April 2019
Our first event of the season was held at a new venue for the Athletics Series – Abbey View Golf and Track Facility in St. Albans. Despite the cold weather, including hailstones, there was some great competition both in track and field. In particular the ambulant sprints were extremely competitive. A big thank you to our officials, our volunteers from the local area and the University of Hertfordshire and to the Abbey View facility for hosting and getting the Athletics Series 2019 off to a great start.
