Our youngsters contest 10 x 1K event

For the first time on the afternoon before the "Night of the 10000m PBs” many clubs across England were invited to take part in this event. With numerous clubs withdrawing as unable to field teams, we were fortunate to have reserves on hand to replace a couple of late (but understandable) withdrawals. The latter part of the meeting was shown on the BBC Red Button, and mentioned this youngsters' relay.

Battling 2nd leaves UKWAL team 3rd overall

The WGEL UK Women’s Athletics League team placed a battling second in the second division 1 fixture of the year in Stevenage, to take the team up to third in the division. In a less tight fixture than the first match, the top three teams separated themselves from the rest early in the match, with Wigan and District ending up victorious ahead of Woodford and first match winner Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers. This leaves Wigan just ahead of SBH overall, with WGEL 3 points behind in third, moving ahead of Southampton on countback, 3 clear of Swansea and Harrow with Herts Phoenix and Crawley adrift at the bottom of the table.
