Congratulations to Jade Williams (Hammer) for her award under the Welsh Athletics Futures Cymru Support Scheme for 12 months beginning 1st December.
Best wishes to our club athletes selected to represent North Wales at the Welsh Inter Regional Cross Country Champs at Brecon on 10 December.
Happy long training runs to Tristan Thomas & Charles Ashley who have taken up the offer of our two club places at the Virgin London Marathon 2017.
Our thanks to Lynda Rowlands for volunteering to take the entries on the day at the final North Wales Junior XC League fixture at Ysgol Morgan Llwyd, Cefn Road, Wrexham on Sat 3 December with the first race at 10.30am; registration from 9.30am. More volunteers would be welcome to assist Lynda and with marshalling, refreshments etc. Presentations take place in the sports hall after the last race.
At the North Wales Regional Athletics Council last Friday in Colwyn Bay I was ‘press ganged’ into chairing the meeting. Road running champs 2017 were agreed for the following races : Prestatyn 5k, Abergele 5 mile, Caernarfon 10k, Wrexham 10 mile, Village Bakery Half Marathon, Wrexham Marathon. The Nick Beer 10k in Llandudno will host the Welsh 10k Champs.
The North Wales Track & Field Champs will be held on Sunday 14 May 2017 at Deeside.
Last Friday was also the occasion for our Club Christmas Dinner at the Squire Yorke where the photos suggest everyone had a great time. It was great to see all our friends from Special Olympics.
Entry forms are now available for the North Wales Indoor Track & Field Champs at Deeside on Sat 7 January 2017. Volunteers to help are needed from parents, coaches, officials etc.
Entry forms are also available for the North Wales Cross Country Champs at the Rhug Estate, near Corwen on Sat 28 January 2017.
Congratulations to our Club Fell Champs 2016 winners : Linda Jones & David Ford, with Alan French taking the masters award. Presentations will be made after the Club Christmas Charity Races (Road & Junior Track) on Sunday 8 January 2017 starting at 12noon (registration from 11.00am).
At our Club AGM last month all the usual suspects were re-elected to club officer posts. The changes for 2017 include : Glyn Davies (coach) made Vice President; Brian Collins appointed as Membership Secretary, in place of Jo Evans who has given great service to the club; and Richard Westwood appointed to the Executive Committee, which meets monthly to keep the club on the rails. Laura Poole has stepped down after giving great service, so we still have a vacancy on the club committee if there is anyone out there who would like to help us, whether parent, coach, athlete or official, let me know by Friday 2nd December, in time for the next committee meeting on
