"My name is Jennifer and I work for Cancer Research UK. I am responsible for organising the Race for Life event at Delamere Forest this year.

Race for Life is a series of 5K /10K women only events which raises vital funds for research into 200 types of cancers. Thanks to our research, 95% of men now survive testicular cancer.

On 17th May we are holding a Race for Life event at Delamere Forest, with a 5K at 10:00 and a 5K and 10K at 13:00.

I am desperately short on volunteers to help direct people on the course for the 13:00 event. We have a marshal briefing at 11:30 then the event starts at 13:00. We expect our first runner back within 40 minutes and our last walker around 2/2.5 hours.

If there is anyway the Halton & Frodsham Harriers could support this event I would be most appreciative. Hot food and snacks will be provided on the day, you will also receive and marshal briefing and a radio to hand. All we need is your support :-)

I look forward to hearing from you,

Jen"

 
Cheshire County Championships Print
Written by Website   
Tuesday, 24 March 2015

The Cheshire County Championships are taking place this year at Trafford AC's track in Stretford, Manchester, combining the Cheshire and the Greater Manchester AA Championships, as has been the case for a few years.

Taking place over 2 days on 23rd / 24th May, a full programme of events is run for U13s and older to compete for the title of County Champion.

Our club has had much success over many years at these championships, but whether or not you think you are in with a shot at the title the competition is a great event each year to both spectate and participate in.

Entry forms are available on the Cheshire AA website here.

It is up to individual athletes to enter themselves, and whilst it is possible to enter on the day it is more expensive!!

The club encourages all athletes to take part and compete against the best that Cheshire has to offer!

 
Guide to the Track & Field season Print
Written by Website   
Wednesday, 16 April 2014

Image result for track and fieldEach year we update this "guide to the T&F season" to make the outdoor Track & Field season a little more understandable to new athletes and parents joining the club!!

The new Track & Field season is nearly underway, with Open meetings, YDL meetings and Cheshire T&F meetings showing in the calendar for the coming weeks and months.

Athletics is both an individual and team sport, and this is reflected in the fixtures throughout the year. There are some fixtures that Team Managers would like all athletes to turn out for, some that rely on selection as there are only a few places available, and others which athletes are encouraged to take part under their own initiative.

Above all, athletics is about more than just training - competing for the club, or for yourself at an Open Meeting, isn't just about trying to win (though that is a great feeling!!), it's also about showing how you have developed and progressed - nothing makes the coaches and team managers more delighted than seeing a young athlete break through their personal bests, no matter what position they come in the competition. So don't be put off from representing the club and turning up to a T&F meeting because you don't think you can win - every PB you get is a win, and every PB you just miss is a close second!!
