Youth Development League Print
Written by Website   
Tuesday, 07 May 2013

Over the past two weekends, Harriers have been taking part in the new Youth Development League which has replaced the Young Athletes League as the national competition for junior athletes.

The competition is split into two meetings - an U17 / U20s match, and an U13 / U15 match.

U17 / U20 Harriers are in the West 3 division of the Northern section, looking to progress into the West 2 division.

U13 / U15 Harriers compete in the West 3 division of the Northern section, hoping to avoid the relegation drop to West 4 or gain promotion to the West 2 division.

In the first meetings over the past two weekends, Connor, Ben and Emma represented Harriers at the Upper Age Group (UAG) meeting in Stockport, where the size of their squad meant that they stand 8th in the League, scoring 91 points in total. Ben set a new club record for the 400m hurdles of 68.6s, whilst Emma Scott created new records in the flat 400m of 67.5s and long jump at 4m63.

In the Lower Age Group (LAG) meeting, Emilia, Holly, Elizabeth, Elenor, Orla and Elouise represented the club in the U13G age group with some new disciplines being picked up on the way! The U13B team was fast in the relays, narrowly winning their race with the team (Luke Southerton, Luke Sutton, Jacob and Tom) also smashing the club record in a time of 57.7s. The U15B and U15G squads sadly were hit by illnesses and injuries, so couldn't get a relay team out, but Bradley, James, Chris, Ellie and Jenny still put in some great performances. Once again Jenny broke the club discus record with a throw of 29m64.

Overall the LAG teams finished a solid 5th, and with a bigger team next time (fingers crossed!) the team is in great shape to challenge for the higher places in the league throughout the season.

 
"Marathon" Cheshire T&F meeting on Marathon day Print
Written by Website   
Monday, 22 April 2013

First of all, the Club would like to say a great big "thank you" to everyone who turned out for the first meeting of the Cheshire Track & Field League for Harriers this year.  Athletes, parents, friends, coaches, team managers, officials - everyone's determination, performances, support and patience were tested to the full on a really competitive day of athletics, taking on some of the biggest clubs in the Cheshire area.

The weather was perfectly scheduled - rain from about 11am onwards, just as everyone was pitching up with chairs, tents and picnics, and one very heavy downpour just before the relays got underway!!

With so many big clubs taking part, and so many enthusiastic runners wanting to take part in non-scoring events, the fixture quickly got well behind schedule - not something which Cheshire T&F meetings are usually known for.  But despite at one point being 2 hours behind the intended timetable, we were able to put out strong full teams in most of the track events.

The full results will be out shortly, both on the Cheshire AA website (here) and on the Powerof10 website (here), but we already know there were plenty of PBs across a range of different events, and even some club records set.

The next Cheshire T&F meeting is on 18th May in Macclesfield, but before that there are the Cheshire County Athletic Championships, held over two days at Trafford AC's track in Stretford - you need to enter individually for this, and the closing dates are the end of this week, so please get your entries in ASAP!!

Manchester XC League - Final fixture - Stockport Print
Written by Website   
Thursday, 07 February 2013

The last Mancester Area Cross Country League race takes place on Sunday 10th February in Woodbank Park, Stockport.

This is a favourite with some of our club runners, with the fearsome "hill" 2/3rds of the way into the course.

Full details of race times, location and the course map are available on the MACCL website.

There are some small changes to the course this year for all age groups at the start of the races.

Once again, the main walking of the course for age groups U11G & B, U13G & B, U15G & B will set off at 11am so that the U11s have plenty of time to return to the start and warm up.  

Wellies are usually an essential addition for the course walk for both athletes and parents!!
