The club is happy to publicise this "Wild Run" across 10K of "beautiful meadows and woodland" in Chigwell. This organisation have been good to WGEL and we wish them all the best with this fundraiser.
The 2017 Young Athletes Winter Awards Night was held in the clubhouse on Tuesday evening. YA Co-Secretary, John Stow, who has brought most of the athletes concerned to the club and coached them, presided over affairs. President Jan Holst was in attendance and GB athlete Canaan Solomon presented the awards.
A good crowd of eager athletes, parents and club members were there to applaud the athletes' fine achievements. And at the end of the evening Club Secretary David Hollingworth presented John Stow himself with an award - Clubman of the Year, very much deserved for the intensive, passionate work he does with the YA section.
