Email from England Athletics - Cardiac Screening Print
Written by Website   
Thursday, 03 May 2012

Some club members may already have seen this, but England Athletics has recently sent out the following email in relation to cardiac screening for young people taking part in athletics. In the light of recent well publicised cases, such as Fabrice Muamba, this may be of interest.

 

England Athletics, UKA and the other home country governing bodies are alert to our responsibilities to all participants in athletics in respect of all aspects of health and safety. One particular area that young athletes and their parents must be aware of is the risk of cardiac problems.
There have been instances of young athletes suffering potentially fatal heart conditions without being aware that they are at risk.
England Athletics would like to make you aware of a piece of work that has been undertaken by UKA. UKA has worked with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) for several years, providing a screening service to athletes on the World Class Performance Programme. UKA and CRY are now seeking to encourage more athletes to use CRY’s screening service to help to identify any cardiac problems that may be otherwise hidden.
CRY is a charity that was established to raise awareness of conditions that can lead to the sudden cardiac death of young people. They operate a screening programme at a number of clinics around the UK and support this with mobile units that travel to other locations.
Full information about CRY and their services can be found on their website at www.c-r-y.org.uk. Young people between the age of 14 and 35 who would like to have cardiac testing can go to www.testmyheart.org.
You can also see www.uka.org.uk/governance/health-safety/cardiac-screening-for-athletes/ for information on work being done by UKA in this area.

Written by Website   
Wednesday, 02 May 2012

This weekend, Harriers step up into the Young Athletes League "Northern 1 South West" division, competing against Liverpool Pembroke Sefton, Macclesfield Harriers, Menai, Salford Mets and Warrington. After a great season last year, winning the division and securing promotion, this year will no doubt be a tough test!

The competition is for U13, U15 and U17 athletes. Most athletes have already been in touch with team managers about the weekend, but if you are available please get in touch.

The season opener takes place at the Salford Mets track (postcode M30 8HY). Athletes should arrive for 10.45pm at the very latest so that registrations can be completed.

Good luck to all taking part!

 
Deeside results Print

Results for the Deeside Cheshire T&F are now available on the powerof10 website here.

At first glance, there seem to be some issues with the results linking the right names with the right individuals, but athletes and parents can log into the site and notify powerof10 of amendments if you want the profiles of athletes to be properly updated.

The first meeting of the year is always a little chaotic, and Gary in particular did a fantastic job of coordinating 3 boys, 2 girls, one men's and one ladies' team entries on the day!

 

 

 
Busy weekend for Harriers Print

Monday, 23 April 2012

Alongside the opening Cheshire Track & Field opening meeting of the season at Deeside, Halton & Frodsham Harriers athletes were also taking part in the UK Sportshall Finals, representing Cheshire, at an open meeting in Liverpool and taking on the gruelling 26 miles of the London Marathon.

There was a good turnout at Deeside, where the showers held off for most of the day, for a good start to the season. Full results are not yet available, but there were good team sizes in U11, U13 and U15 girls and boys, as well as participation in the senior mens category. Plenty of PBs were set, with many athletes either taking to the track for the first time or stepping up age groups in this first outdoor club meeting of the year. Results should be on the powerof10 website later this week, as well as on the Cheshire AA website.

At the Sportshall Finals, Jonathan and Michaela were joined by Ellie, with Annabel unable to take part due to injury. All three put in some great performances, and with Michaela narrowly missing out on a national medal finishing 4th in the standing triple jump.

Sunday saw Harriers at Wavertree in the Ernie Gallagher Memorial Young Athletes' Medal Meeting. Dean, Emilia, Tom and Mark brought home several medals to add to the collections!

And not forgetting Nick Massey, who covered the 26.2 miles of the London Marathon in 4hrs5mins53s and now deserves a well earned rest!!

Final Round of Manchester Area Cross Country League Print

Monday, 13 February 2012

Saturday saw the fifth and final round of the Manchester Area Cross Country League (MACCL) at Clayton Vale, near to the Eastlands stadium in Manchester.

It was clear once the athletes arrived that this was going to be a different sort of challenge compared to the mud and rain that has featured at so many of the races this year. The undulating course was still frozen hard, and there were large patches of solid ice covering parts of the course.

Tom Pinks Relays - Sheffield Print
Written by Website   
Thursday, 02 February 2012

England AAAs have once again invited the Harriers to select teams to compete in the hugely enjoyable "Tom Pink Relays" to be held at the Sheffield EIS on Saturday March 3rd.

This is an indoors event comprising continuous relays on the banked indoor 200m track as well as a full programme of Sportshall field events.  The meeting is for U11s and U13s and there are medals and trophys to take home for winners and runners up.  Last year the event was a huge success for Harriers with two club athletes setting new records for these events.

If you are under 11 or under 13 and would like to take part in the event, then please let the club know as soon as possible - email your team manager through this site, or let them know at training next week.  The club will be arranging for a coach for the trip over to Sheffield.

 
Northern XC Champs report Print

Monday, 30 January 2012

Four Harriers made the trip over to Pontefract Park, home of the longest horse racing circuit in Europe, for the Northern Athletics Cross Country Championships at the weekend.

With blizzards on the motorway the night before (and horrendous travelling for those who stayed overnight), Saturday was a gloriously sunny day and the race course venue was a great place for about 2,000 runners from across the North of England to take part in the annual event.

Georgia, Jenny and Kelsey took part in the U13 Girls race, and Chris was in the U13 Boys race. Both races were run over the same 3.1km course, which started uphill, and finished uphill too, providing a strength sapping race for all concerned.

In the U13 girls race, Georgia placed 18th in the 170+ strong field with a time of 12m47s. Jenny was next home for Harriers in 121st in 15m10s, and Kelsey next in 162nd (16m35s).

In the boys race, Chris placed 47th in a time of 12m24s.

All results are on the PowerofTen website, but the official website gives no time for how long it took to pack the tent away!!
