Sports Relief 2014

To help support Sport Relief 2014, 88 athletes, parents, grand parents and siblings from the Junior and Mini Athletics clubs turned out on Friday 21st March to take part in the first ever Monkton Stadium “Upto a Mile”.  Both younger and older athletes ran, jogged and walked around the track to complete a fantastic total of 100 miles.  They all helped to raise a generous £300.00 on the night with more money to come in the form of sponsorship.

A BIG Thank You to all who took part and helped JHAC and Monkton Stadium support this worthy 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.
