Club Term Championships Saturday 27th June
The Club Summer Term Championships for everyone across all age groups (including parents, grandparents siblings and coaches) will take place on Saturday 27th June starting at 13:50 for registration. We aim to complete the championships by 18:00.
The Mini Ones and satellite club athletes will compete with those who come to the Saturday afternoon session so we look forward to having the entire club competing that afternoon in an age group appropriate Quadrathlon (4 events : sprint; endurance run; jump and throw).
We have been asked if parents can also compete in a Quadrathlon through the course of the afternoon (as the coaches will be...). If you would like to be included in the start list for this event please let us know as soon as possible (email@example.com) and you will be given a competitor number.
