At the recent County Championships held in Derbyshire and Yorkshire our athletes once again did the club and themselves proud. A fantastic 51 medals were won over the weekend across track and field. In addition to the medal winners many athletes recorded PB’s – just reward for the commitment and dedication that you all show to training.
Keep up the good work.
