Cheshire County XC Championship results Print

Monday, 11 January 2016

Seven club members took part in Saturday's County XC Championships at Reaseheath College on Saturday.

Whilst the weather wasn't too unkind on the day, and the organisers had made great efforts to have courses which were in good condition, there were plenty of tough mud sections for all to contend with.

First up was the U11s with the boys and the girls racing together. Millie represented the club in the U11 girlsm with Ewan, Jack and Joseph making up a full team for the boys event.

Ewan narrowly missed out on a medal with a really strong run over the 2.5km course, placing 4th in his first County Championship race crossing the line in 9m13s, just 11s behind the race winner. Jack and Joseph also ran well placing 26th (10m28) and 39th (11m46) and the team finished 8th overall.

Millie also ran very well, placing 33rd in the girls event in a time of 11m47.

With no club runners in the U13s, Isla was the next Harrier to take to the mud, competing in the U15 girls race where she placed 22nd in 16m32.

Chris was the sole club entrant in the U17 mens race, and finished a good 5th place and secured a place in the Cheshire squad for the intercounties cross country meeting in Birmingham in March.

And the final Harrier to rise to the challenge was Richard McGeachie in the U20 mens race. Richard placed 4th in his race, covering the longer course in 23m11s and will also now take a spot in the County team for the Birmingham match.

Everyone put in really good efforts at the weekend and should be proud of their finishing positions!!

Changes to Widnes training Print
Written by The Committee   
Thursday, 26 November 2015

At our recent committee meeting, held on 18/11/15, it was decided that training at Widnes will only be held on Thursdays from the end of November. The last Monday session will be Monday 30th November.

There are a number of reasons for this decision, notably reduced numbers at training, low turnout at matches and a lack of coaches.

If you have any questions about this decision, please feel free to talk to any of the coaches either at Widnes or Frodsham.

Can you help? Print

Tuesday, 21 July 2015

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.
