Stubber’s Activity Centre in Upminster was the venue on Wednesday for the Essex Schools Year 7 and 8 championships and with an Essex vest on offer for the top 16, a good number of our Young athletes were keen to put a good performance. (Photo below, Ben Savidge, by Brett Savidge)

Survey: Changes to Southern CC Champs

The SEAA Endurance Working Group has compiled a survey based on suggestions and proposals received over the past year regarding our Endurance Events. The survey contains ten questions asking for details on your activity in athletics and your opinions on changes to the Masters XC Championships and the Main XC Championships.

Our aim is to ascertain the views of our affiliated club members before making any changes.

It would be appreciated if you could forward this on to your fellow club members, officials and athletes.

Survey is available here:

This survey will close on the 21st March 2018 and will not accept any answers after that date.

2018 Met League race 5: Senior Men

Last Saturday saw us take to the mud for the fifth and final edition of the Met League for the 2017/18 season. With the English winter weather conditions prolonging their stay, the attritional mud made for a traditional cross country affair. The race was won by Peter Huck from Newham, and his average pace of outside 5.30 per mile, indicates how tough conditions were. As a team we could only manage 6th on the day, but succeeded in cementing our 3rd place finish in the overall league standings. This will prove a good platform to build on for next season's foray!
