Cheshire League - Match 3 - Ashton-U-Lyne - Sunday 30th July Print
Written by Website   
Monday, 17 July 2017

This is the 3rd Cheshire League match of the season. We hope to have a good turnout as it is open to all age groups.

It takes place at the Ashton Under Lyne track, and the postcode for SatNavs is OL7 9HG.

The coaches and administrators are all volunteers and give up a lot of time for the young athletes at the club to train them for competition and league events. In return we expect them to represent us at league matches throughout the season!

We need the athletes there by 11.00 to get teams arranged and allow time for warm ups etc. The 1st event is at 12.00. Please do your best to attend this meeting and show your support for the club!

Please see our website www.hfh.org.uk for more information or speak to any of the coaches. Any problems phone Bill on 01928 712387.

We've been sent directions to get to the track in case your SatNav isn't being helpful:-

Coming from the West: M60 to junction 23. Come off bearing left making sure you are in the lane marked straight on at the lights (there are two to the right and two to the left). Follow this road, which becomes Sheldon Way, until you reach a crossroads with lights. On your left is Ashton Cricket Club, on the right a shopping complex and on the other side of the lights Sainsburys and Ikea. Stay in the left lane and turn left on to Richmond Street. The track is on your left and the car/coach park entrance is at the end of the hedge.

From the East it is M60 junction 23. Get in the lanes bearing right on to the A635. At the second set of lights (a crossroads) get into the right turning lane. You are now on Sheldon Way and follow as above. This is the best way for coaches.

From the North it is M62 to junction with M66/M60. Follow signs to Ashton-under- Lyne, Junction 23. You can do as for East (best for coaches) or you can bear left to the A635 and continue to the roundabout with St. Peter’s Church in the middle. Keep in the left hand lane and bear left into the one way system. At the mini roundabout go straight across. You are now on Richmond Street. Continue for approximately half a mile through one set of lights and you will see the club and track on the left.

The postcode is OL7 9HG and telephone is 0161 330 4602.

Track & Field Fixtures - 2017 Print
Written by Website   
Thursday, 30 March 2017

Fixtures for the coming season have been handed out to all athletes at this week's training sessions, but just in case the notes didn't make it home (!) here are the details of the club's fixtures for the coming season, with some brief explanations of what they are!

Cheshire Track & Field League

This is the only league that the club participates in, and we encourage ALL club members to ensure that they take part in at least one of these fixtures each season.  And hopefully take part in all four!

The League competitions follow a standard series of events from U11s through to Seniors including individual events and sprint relays.  There is a real mix of competition standards and these are a perfect opportunity for young athletes to take their first steps onto competing at an athletics track with their teammates and contributing to team overall scores.  Participation levels count as much as out-right performances - a young sprinter running a 600m race for the first time will pick up valuable team points even if they finish right at the back, so our team managers try to make sure that all available scoring slots are filled.

Don't wait to be asked to turn up - the more the merrier!!  And if you've got any questions, just ask a team manager or official at training.

Cheshire T&F meetings usually fill a whole afternoon and can be an enjoyable day out in the sun (sometimes!) with your teammates - bring a picnic, bring the family, cheer on your team!

The dates and venues for this year are:-

Match 1 - Sunday 7th May - Ellesmere Port

Match 2 - Sunday 2nd July - Crewe & Nantwich

Match 3 - Sunday 30th July - Ashton Under Lyne

Match 4 - Sunday 3rd September - Warrington (H&F hosting this event)

Cheshire County T&F Championships

This is a two day fixture held over a weekend where the Cheshire Athletics Association provides the opportunity for athletes to compete against the best in Cheshire.  Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded for age groups U13 through to Seniors (sorry, no U11s!).  

It is up to individual athletes to enter for these championships, and we'll post an update on our website and facebook feed when entry forms are available. 

Day 1 - Saturday 13th May - Warrington

Day 2 - Sunday 14th May - Warrington

Cheshire County Relay Championships

This is an annual meeting dedicated to relays.  A mixture of sprint, medley and middle distance relays are held across all age groups (U11 through to Seniors).  

This is another great opportunity to earn a County medal.  If you are interested in taking part, talk to team managers who will coordinate team selections and entries.

Saturday 22nd July - Crewe

Open meetings

Throughout the year, clubs such as Warrington, Trafford and Deeside put on Open Meetings.  A full range of track and field events will be put on at these, usually with medals awarded for junior races and field events, and are a great opportunity between League fixtures to tune up performance.  These are self entry - just turn up on the day, pay a small entry fee and take part proudly wearing your club vest!  Keep an eye on our facebook page for details of open meetings coming up, or keep an eye out on other club websites for details of new ones they are hosting.

School athletics

Most high schools participate in the Cheshire Schools Athletics Assocation, and select athletes to take part in the Cheshire Schools Championships.  They are run over two separate days with Year 8+ separate from a Y7 event.

Year 8+ - Saturday 10th June - Warrington

Year 7 - Wednesday 21st June - Warrington

Our fixtures calendar is usually up to date with details of upcoming fixtures, but why not pop these days in your diary now and you can guarantee turning out for the club!

 
Great endurance weekend Print
Written by Website   
Sunday, 15 January 2017

The young Harrier endurance squad had a busy weekend, dealing with everything that mother nature could throw at them.

On Saturday, the strong U11G squad got the weekend off to a great start in their race at the fourth event in the MACCL series.

Charlotte placed 11th, leaving her placed 10th overall in the series to date.  Beth came in next in 33rd, Millie placed 40th and Ellie placed 46th.

In the U13B race, Matthew placed 44th in his race, triumphing in the key skill of keeping both spikes for the entire race!

Whilst the ground was a bit firmer, on Sunday the weather was definitely less kind to Chris and Matt running Helsby Running Club's Four Villages Half Marathon.  Pre-race favourite to take the local prize was Richard McGeachie, but ill health meant he couldn't make the start line this year.  

Chris debuted over the half marathon distance and recorded a fine time of 1hr26m03s and placed first in the U20s category.  Matt also had a good run coming home in a course-best of 1hr29m21s.

Great running all!!
