It’s been a busy few weeks (and weekends) recently – and so I quite enjoyed a weekend without any athletics to watch or to measure. So instead I had a friend’s 70th birthday to celebrate on Saturday, and then a family with our own sons and wives and children – and dogs – at Tilgate Park on Sunday.
Open meeting coming up on Bank Holiday Monday at K2. Go to the Crawley AC website for more information.
September – or rather the first half of September – will see the last opportunity for track and field competition in 2021. Here’s what I am aware of:
Saturday September 4 – match for under 13s and under 15s at K2. Club enters you in this match. Team managers have contacted athletes for this match. If you haven’t responded then please do so soon.
Sunday September 5 – match for under 17s and under 20s at K2. As with the above under 13 and under 15 match the club enters you in this match and team managers have recently contacted our athletes for this match.
Saturday and Sunday September 11 and 12 – Sussex combined events championships at Sutton. More information on the Sussex AAA website. It is for you to enter yourself for these championships.
Saturday September 18. Last meeting for under 13s and under 15s at K2. You enter yourself into the events you wish to do for this match. Information and entry details on the Sussex AAA website. This match includes Sussex Championships 3,000 metres races for all age-groups from under 15s upwards.
Training this week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Sackville School from 6.30 to 7.30.
