Notices to Club Members


The Pontefract Track and Field Open Meeting, held on 25th June 2017, was very successful. We had 204 entries which included an excellent turnout of 41 athletes from our own club. We also had 5 club records set at the meeting. Well done to everybody, especially those who helped out on the day.


Please note that an additional Road Running training night will now be held each week on Wednesday nights, starting at 7.00 pm from the Carleton pub. This means that road running training sessions will now be held 3 times a week. See training page for details.


Well done to Scott Daly, who set a pb and men's over 45 club record of 17-34 in the Doncaster 5K race on 12 July 2017. Well done also to Michael Flaherty, who set a men's over 55 club record of 21-31 in the Methley Canal 5K on 4 July 2017.


Well done to Faye Lightowler, who had another outstanding run when winning the women's race at the Askern 10 Miles Race on 13th August 2017. Faye won the race by more than 4 minutes, setting a club record of 60 minutes 13 seconds.
