Young & Minor Athletics Results – February

Results from the February 2014 indoor meetings.  Many thanks to all competitors, officials, volunteers etc. who helped make the meetings a success.







Boxing Day Handicap 2013

It was a cold and frosty start to Boxing Day 2013 but that didn’t stop 37 hardy souls from running around the paths in Bedewell Park for this year’s Billy Robertson Memorial Handicap in aid of St. Clare’s Hospice.

In the 2-lap race, Anna Sandbach was first past the post in 15:59.  In race time order, Amelia Leslie took the honours with an actual time of 13:20.

In the 3-lap race, Malcolm Leece was first past the post and claimed the Billy Robertson Memorial Shield in a time of 22:37.  The fastest actual times were recorded by Andy Burn, 15:19 and Stacey Rogers, 18:13.  Stacey also gets a special mention for her ‘Arctic Combat’ style running kit for the day!  Full results available from the links below.

Many thanks to the volunteer helpers who were out early salting the paths and redirecting the course away from a newly formed frozen lake!  Thanks also to officials for their help but mainly to the runners themselves who donated over £175 for a great cause.

Recent Successes on the Road and in the Mud

On Sunday November 17th Alex Snook finished third overall in the Brampton to Carlisle 10 Mile Road Race which also incorporated the Northern 10 Mile Championship. As the 2 girls who finished in front of her were not eligible to count in the championship race, Alex picked up the Gold Medal which makes her the Northern 10 Mile Champion. Andy Burn also ran in the same race and also finished 3rd overall. He picked up a Bronze Medal in the Northern Championship Race. Both ran PB times, Alex – 60:02, Andy – 51:45.

The day before, Saturday November 16th, Elaine Leslie competed in the Veteran’s International XC at Cardiff and came home with Team Gold Medal as part of the victorious England team. Well done to the trio.
