Two club athletes were took their first steps in sports leadership and coaching when they received their Sports Leaders Level 1 Award in Leadership last night.


These awards, to Emma Scott and Amy Pearson, give them a qualification so that they can lead sessions under supervision. It leads to a level 2 award, which gives them more responsibility both for what they can do and how they can help out more in training sessions. The hope is that it will lead to coaching qualifications. 


MACCL - Match 2 - Sherdley Park, St Helens Print

Monday, 14 November 2011

7 club athletes turned out on a lovely November morning to compete under the new club flag (!) at the second round of the Manchester Area XC League at Sherdley Park in St Helens.  The course here is undulating and energy sapping, so was a tough test for all runners.

Racing over a 2.2km course, Isla was the first club athlete to run, covering the course in 10m52s to take 33rd place overall in the U11G race.  Over the same course and distance, Alex and Jenny were next up, racing with the U11B, though none from Harriers.  Jenny and Alex raced close together, with Jenny crossing the line in 10m02s and Alex just 4 seconds behind in 40th spot.

The next races pitted the U13B and U15G in the same field, over a longer 3.1km course.  The U13B had a full scoring team, with Chris leading the way coming home in 10th place overall in 12m42s.  Bradley ran a strong race with a very strong finish covering the course in 13m47s (20th) and Mitch was the third scorer in a time of 15m03s for a gruelling 26th place.  The boys team was placed 5th overall, and puts their team in 3rd place in the competition so far.  

In the same race, Keira Grady was the 15th home in a time of 13m51s.

All age groups were a little depleted due to the schools cross country races held on the Saturday, so let's hope for a bigger squad at the next race in Wythenshawe Park on Saturday 3rd December to build on some good performances this weekend!

Some pictures from the meeting are on our facebook page - why not check it out -

All age groups score both as individuals or as teams of three, with the first three to finish from the club counting as the "A" team, next three as the "B" team etc.  It would be great to get teams out for as many age groups as possible.

For U13s and above this is the second race in the five match series (best 4 positions count), for U11s this is the first race in a four match series (best 3 positions count).

Four of the club's athletes took part in the England Athletics National Cross Country Relay championships at Berry Park, Mansfield this weekend.

In true cross country style the course was very muddy, enjoyed by some and less so by others!

Wednesday, 21 September 2011

9 of the club's athletes headed off to Sefton Park in Liverpool to take part in the NorthWest Counties Road Relays races last weekend.

With weather swinging between a lovely autumn day and torrential downpours, everyone ran well over a good 3.3km course, longer than had been planned.

The U13G team of Georgia, Jenny and Molly were the first out.  In the first leg Georgia came to the change over in second place, with a time of 12m26s (the second fastest leg from all competitors).  Jenny ran a solid leg to leave the team in 12th place overall (4th Cheshire) covering the ground in 15m41s.  Molly ran the third leg holding position in 12th in a time of 14m25s to bring the team home just outside the Cheshire medals in 4th place.

Chris set the U13B team off on the first leg with a time of 12m29s, bringing the team into 10th place overall (5th Cheshire), handing over to James for the second leg.  James ran the course well in 14m03s in his first race over a long distance and handed over to Billy with the team in 11th place overall (4th Cheshire).  Billy then ran an excellent battling leg in 12m59s to bring the team home in 8th place overall and picking up the bronze county medal as the 3rd Cheshire team home.

In the U15G illness meant there were only two runners; Keira and Emily.  Keira ran the first leg in 13m51s and Emily covered the ground in 16m13s.  

Richard was the only club member taking part in the U17M race, running over a longer 5.5km course.  Richard ran the course in 22m58s.

Well done to everyone who took part!  Full results are on the Northern Athletics website here.
