You must be a paid-up member of the club to be covered by insurance when training, so it is important that you let us have your membership fee no later than the end of May. If you haven't paid by then you will not be able to train until payment is made.
A busy weekend of events saw our juniors in indoor action at Sportcity and outdoors at Pendle's track in Nelson.
On Saturday, seven of our athletes took part in the Sale Open Junior Indoor meeting at Sportcity. Amongst the highlights were a great debut from Emily Eden, who was straight into competitive action after just two weeks with the club. After a promising 2nd in her 200 heat, Emily was 2nd overall in the soft javelin with 18.25 metres and jumped 3.47 in the long jump.
Other top performances included Jack Walsh's win in the 600m, Naomi Richardson's PB of 3.61 in the long jump, Callum Moore's long jump of 3.91 and Tom Kramer's 28.5 for 2nd in the 200m. Jame Kramer and Liam Moore put up great performance across three events each, including first attempts at longer distances in their runs.
On Sunday, Ella Clancy and Shauna O'Connor flew the Harriers flag in the Pendle Spring Open meeting at Nelson. Both girls overcame their inexperience to deliver big performances, with a 1-2 in the shot, 3rd and 4th places in the 100m and big efforts just outside the places in the long jump. A great efffort by both girls, who've given themselves a platform to build on in upcoming events through the season.
Well done to all our athletes for their efforts and lets's see more athletes joining in the fun at the next open meeting at Wakefield on 13th April - see Ian for details!
