WGEL Young Athletes Meeting (Minithon)

On Saturday 26th September, WGEL Young Athletes hosted their second track and field competition of the summer, catering for WGEL athletes, school years 3-9 (U11s-U15s).

The event, thanks to the hard work of WGEL club officials, took place under UKA Licensed competition rules. This provided athletes with official recorded times and distances, and for many helped established their athletics CV’s on the UKA “Power of Ten” results database.

Power of 10 Results

Athletes selected up to three events from the licensed schedule including hurdles, 75m, 150m, and 600m, Long Jump, Shot Put and Javelin (howlers). Over 100 WGEL athletes entered. The organising team seeded races on school year groups. This ensured athletes had good levels of competition, whilst having fun with age group teammates.
