Summer holidays may have started but athletics hasn’t stopped!
The Club continues to meet as normal throughout the school holidays apart from the August bank holiday Monday. Please bear with us because various coaches are away and we will have to mix squads on the night depending on numbers.
On the track the main events are Mid Lancs league meetings on 11th and 25th August see www.midlancs.org.uk for details. Don’t forget to put our own open meeting in your diaries – first Sunday in September the 2nd. All club athletes are encouraged to enter this event and it is great place to start track and field competition.
Fell running continues with at least two competitions most weeks. Most club members compete in the Bofra races, and the next ones are at Cracoe on Sunday 22nd July and Ambleside Sports on Thursday 26th July. Details are on www.bofra.co.uk. Further races are in the FRA calendar.
Tuesday 7th August features the Brownlee run in Haworth, suitable for all runners, not just fell. Starts with a race over the Bunny run course followed by watching the Olympic triathlon and some food. Details on www.woodentops.org.uk. Our top triathlete brothers cut their teeth on the woodentops races and all prizes are Brownlee memorabilia.
