Written by Website   
Tuesday, 06 October 2015

The winter competition schedule starts this weekend both indoors and outdoors.

Cross Country

On Saturday, the club's participation in the Manchester Area Cross Country League kicks off at Woodbank Park, Stockport.

This first match is for U13+ athletes, with the U11 athletes joining the series at the next match in the league.

U13s race at 12:15 so should aim to meet at 11:30am at the latest to walk the course and collect race numbers. U15s then race at 12:30 and U17s at 12:50.

Although it has been dry, wellies or walking boots are recommended for spectators!!

Full league details are here http://www.bbresults.co.uk/wp/?page_id=51 with course maps here http://www.bbresults.co.uk/wp/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/1516coursemapMatchOne.pdf


U11s to U15s who are attending training should all be looking to represent the club at the first Sportshall match of the year.

The first of the three League matches takes place at the Kingsway facility in Widnes.

Athletes should make sure they meet team managers at Kingsway at 11:15am at the latest to ensure they have time to warm up and get prepared for the afternoon's events.

At this point, we are asking ALL athletes to turn out to convert their training into valuable performances and points; please let team managers know if you are unable to attend.

Good luck to all athletes, indoor and outdoor, this weekend!

As the outdoor track season is nearing the end, with the lower YDL completed and just 2 more Cheshire T&F matches to come, we should take time to say "Thank you" to Emma Scott and Rachel Wilson for their time, effort and dedication as Team Managers this year.

Unfortunately for us, both Team Managers won't be able to do that role for us next year, so the club is looking for some keen volunteers to take their places for both the winter Sportshall programme and for the outdoor Track & Field season next year.

Without team managers in place, the club wouldn't be able to enter the various leagues, and our young athletes would miss out on the chance to compete.

We are looking for people with energy and enthusiasm to lead and inspire the young athletes to achieve the great things that we know they are capable of. Over the years the Club has been very fortunate to have parents with these qualities to come through and take on team management and other roles within the club, and we are always on the lookout for those who can help us.

If you think you might be able to help out, please drop a line to Bill Smith ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or any of the other officials at our training sessions.

Success for endurance squad at Cheshire Championships Print
Written by Website   
Thursday, 28 May 2015

The Frodsham-based endurance squad reaped the benefits of their hard training throughout the winter with 7 medals at last weekend's Cheshire County Championships.

Richard McGeachie (U20 - 3000m gold, 800m silver), Jacob Birtles (U15 - 800m gold) and Chris Larkin (U17 - 3000m bronze, 1500m steeplechase silver, high jump silver and triple jump silver) all set PBs and club records in their events on Saturday and Sunday, with Richard's battling display in the 3000m and Jacob's dominant 800m run being particular highlights in the glorious weather on the Saturday.

Whilst the athletes are the ones running the events and taking the glory Nick Massey as coach to the squad should also be singled out for his dedication and hard work with this squad too!

In addition to Richard, Chris and Jacob, Luke Southerton was the only other Harrier to compete in the weekend's championships, unfortunately overstepping the take off on each of his jumps and missing out at an excellent chance at the gold medal.

It was disappointing to see such few entrants this weekend, with no female competitors at all.  Perhaps athletes and parents could feed back to coaches and team managers to see whether there were any underlying reasons for the low turnout?

Full results are now available on the Powerof10 website and on the Greater Manchester AA website.
