It's the first club match of the outdoor season on Sunday 5th May as we take on West Cheshire AC (hosts), Crewe & Nantwich, Warrington, Wrexham and East Cheshire in round 1 of the Cheshire Track & Field League.  Please arrive promptly before 10:45 (see below).

The location is the athletics track next to the Ellesmere Port Sports Village. 

The Cheshire Track & Field League is the only league the club takes part in, with 4 matches throughout the summer. The races and field events are genuinely for all comers - if you're a club member we will cheer you on the track and in the field at whatever level of performance you're at, so don't be afraid to lace up your shoes and have a go.

All we ask is for you to turn out, do your best and support the rest of your team.  Put your training into competitive practice and reward your coaches by showing them what they've helped you to achieve.

Most younger athletes will turn out for the day with family in tow, and the afternoon's can be a glorious day out in the sun with a picnic!

Each club scores points through performance AND participation. For example, in the sprints there are four races - A to D. The fastest in race A scores 24 points, and the slowest in that race scores 19 points. Then the fastest in race B scores 18 points, and the slowest 13 points etc. So even if you don't think of yourself as a sprinter but you race in the A race, you will score highly for the team no matter how fast you run, and if we can fill all the spots with a runner in each race we'd score 40 points at the very least.

In some events, other clubs won't be able to fill their spots, so even if you've not putted a shot before, you might find yourself scoring very highly by having a go - and as a bonus, you might discover a hidden talent!!

The timetable for the day is available here (click here) - please note the unusual start time with the first race (Seniors and U17s 3000m) at 11:00 and the short sprints at 11:30.  This means all athletes should register with team managers at 10:45 AT THE LATEST

Under 11s can take part in three events plus the relay and team managers will endeavour to create as high a scoring team as possible so please make yourselves available to take part in non-specialist events to support the team.

There is no "stand" at the track at Ellesmere Port, so picnic blankets, foldable chairs, sun tents etc are the order of the day.
