Well Done to everyone who raced in the Yorkshire Cross Country Championships. Hallamshire had some great performances and many athletes qualified to run in the Intercounties in Loughborough on the 10th March.
Results for all the races are available on the Northern Athletics website (Link available).
As for team results Hallamshire came 1st team in the Under 13 boys, Under 13 Girls and Under 15 Girls. Came 6th in the Under 17 men, 4th in the Senior Women’s team result and had a great win for the Senior Men.
Thank you to our team managers Tina Wilson, Nicola Squires and Dave Archer! Lets hope to see more great performances at the Northerns and Nationals.
After the AGM the members on the committee are now:
Some great performances at the South Yorkshire Championships on Sunday at Spinkhill. Hallamshire kept the junior shield and managed to gain back the senior one for the first time since 2012! This is down to the efforts from all the runners who turned out to race!
The club held an Introduction to athletics event at Hillsborough Arena on Saturday 20th August 2016 sponsored by South Yorkshire Sport. Despite the SWFC v Leeds football match and the wet weather forecast the event went really well and we managed to avoid the rain (well most of the time) and interest from football fans. We had around 35-40 children turn up between the ages of 6 years to 21 years! Leaflets were handed out for SIV athletics sessions to children under 8 years, HH club leaflets to those from 8yrs to 16 years and two people (aged 21 yrs) returning to athletics after finishing University were referred to Kate Jones UKA coach.
Many thanks go to Ben Kelly (sprint coach), Sam Kelly (equipment support/photographer), Malcolm Grace and Martin Young (throws coaches), Evelyn Williams (Standing Long Jump coach), Steve Moran for Endurance/Relays, Karen Kelly registration forms/leaflets and Carol (Hurdles). Now we have tried it out once it looks like it may become a regular summer introduction to athletics event.
