Notices to Club Members
Faye Lightowler continued her outstanding start to this year's road running scene with 5th place in the women's race at the Manchester Marathon on 2nd April 2017. Faye's time of 2 hours 51 minutes 13 seconds improved the club record for the marathon by more than 5 minutes. Well done Faye! Will Carter was also in record breaking form on the same day. He had an outstanding clearance of 3.60 metres in the Pole Vault at the Spenborough Open Meeting to set a new club record for senior men.
The results of our Indoor Open Meeting at Thornes Park Stadium on 12 March 2017 are now shown on the Open Meeting page. Thank you to all the athletes, who took part and to all those, who officiated or helped with the organizing of the event.
Congratulations to Faye Lightowler, who won the women's race at the Norton 9 Miles Road Race on 5th March 2017 in a very fast 55 minutes 4 seconds and then followed this up with another victory in the women's race in the Thirsk 10 Miles on 19th March 2017, setting a club record of 61 minutes 4 seconds.
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.
Track and Field fixtures for the whole of 2017 are now shown on the Track and Field Fixtures page as far as they are known. The Pontefract Open Meeting, the Pontefract Indoor Open Meeting and the league fixtures are the most important competitions, so please try to make yourself available for as many of these as possible.
