Claireville Stadium – 9th June 2013

 

For me this was a day with a difference, much different to road racing and not what I was used to.

 

Upon arrival at 11am, I entered the stadium and was quite overwhelmed by the size and the noise of that start gun, that’s enough to make anyone run fast! 

 

I looked at the track and thought “no, that’s never a 400m track, is it?” Indeed it was, “surely I don’t have to run around that 7 times for the 3k?” I’m afraid so!

 

It still looked far too big but Gemma Parkin assured me it would be just like the usual track sessions we do and kept saying, “you’ll be fine, you’ll be fine, just follow me,” hmmm ok Gemma, maybe one day I’ll catch you!

 

I walked up the steps and into the stands where all the New Marske Harriers were sat, each putting numbers on their vests and looking at the list of events they were going to take part in.

 

This time there were lots of new faces for me, not the usual people I’m so used to seeing when I’ve turned up to an event, great to meet some more New Marske Harriers, at last!

 

It was nice to watch all events, so much going on at the same time it was quite exciting, even while waiting for your event to start there was plenty of refreshments which kept you going all day, great facilities all round!

 

Although I was only in a handful of events it was still a memorable day and quite an experience, especially when I was given the chance of shot put, “well at least I tried and no I didn’t hit anyone!” I mixed with some great contenders.

 

I think all who were involved made an excellent team and worked together extremely well, even the officials who did a fantastic job.

 

 Well done to all New Marske Harriers who competed and I’m definitely looking forward to attending another meeting in the future!

 

If we can match this in the final two fixtures we will have consolidated our position in the division!

North Eastern Counties AA Pentathlon Championships

Saturday 8th September 2012

In senior men’s competition Adam Walker retained his title with a pb points score of 2095 beating his previous best by 38pts. He also beat his dicus pb by 38cm by throwing 23.47m.

Hannah Raine in the Under 13 Girls won the bronze medal with a score of 1932, with a pb 800m.

Josh Baines also finished in bronze position with a score of 905 – all 5 events were pbs (to be fair it was the first time he had competed in HJ, 80mH and SP).

Elena Heath finished in 6th in the Under 15 Girls with a score of 1448. She would have had a significantly better score had she not no-heighted in the high jump but set pbs in the long jump and shot.

Well Done to all four!
