year and is a great opportunity for you to set a benchmark time or distance
early on in the season to get a gauge of how your winter training has been
going. With so few open meets this early on and before major competitions this
will allow you to get the times and distances you need to enter, such as
the upcoming BUCS Outdoors in April. We offer a wide range of events both track

Sue Frisby broke the British record in the w55 pentathlon on Sunday 21st June in Oxford. Winning 4 out of the 5 events with personal best performances meant that Sue won the overall event and broke the British record in style.
Her new personal best performances were 13.56 for the 80m hurdles, 8.52m shot put, 4.22m Long Jump and 3.04 for the 800m. The only event where she didn't get a personal best was the High Jump but she still managed a brilliant jump of 1.30m.
Following on from her success, Sue has been selected to compete in the World Championships in Lyon next month! Congratulations Sue and good luck!

All of the athletes that competed across the three competitions did fantastically well and were a credit to themselves and the Club. Congratulations to you all!
The Short brothers led the way at the Market Harborough Park Run on Saturday taking the top two places. It was eldest sibling, Jamie, that prevailed in the race to the line. The Senior Man ran the 3 mile course in 16:25, whilst U20 Harry's time of 17:13 was just 3 seconds ahead of Matthew Driver, who had to settle for 3rd.
Elliot Powell leads the European rankings with his win in the International at Mannheim, Germany today.
The 19 year old triumphed in the 200m with a fantastic time of 20.68 which not only shoots him to the top of the Power of 10 rankings, but is another new club record, which Elliot only broke 2 weeks ago at the Midland Counties Championships.
Well done Elliot and good luck in the U20 Championships next month!
