Cheshire County Championships 2016 Print
Written by Website   
Sunday, 15 May 2016

Just three Harriers took part in the County T&F Championships this weekend at the excellent Macclesfield track.

The first competitor to take to the track was Ewan MacNab (U13B) competing in the heats of the 200m.  Ewan qualified from the heats with 31.1s and improved his time to a fine 30.06s (PB) in the final to place 6th in the county.

Chris Larkin (U17B) entered the high jump in the morning session of day 1, and equalled his PB jumping 1m55 and placing fourth overall.  Chris saved his best performance of the weekend for the 3000m later in the afternoon.  Taking on a strong a talented field, Chris took 29s off his PB to cross the line in 9m20.00s with a fine sprint finish to pick up the silver medal.

Luke Southerton (U17B) was the final competitor on the first day from our club.  Luke also jumped well with a best leap of 5m37, placing 6th in the county.

Chris Larkin was the only Harrier competing on Day 2, and he picked up two more county medals to come away with 3 medals from 4 events.  In the triple jump he jumped 10m83 to pick up the bronze medal, and in the 1500 Steeplechase (run without a water jump due to technical difficulties at the track) he placed 2nd to pick up his second silver medal of the championships.

Well done to all who took part, and a special mention to all of the club officials who gave up their whole weekends to make the annual championships a smooth running success!

Cheshire County XC Championship results Print
Written by Website   
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!!

Some photos of the event are now online at https://goo.gl/photos/rsY4QkdbtfZbEFTcA and full results are on the Cheshire AA website at www.cheshireaa.com
