EVENTS:

The final Chiltern League cross country fixture for the 2015/16 season is on Saturday 13th February at Campbell Park, Milton Keynes.

We really need your support for these events and would encourage as many members as possible to take part. They are very sociable and friendly events where all runners are welcomed. The distances range from 2000m to 4000m depending on age and gender.  All races are chip timed, chips will be distributed at the event and remain with the runner for the season so please do not loose it.  (A small charge will be made to replace lost chips.)

The event is free to enter, the club have decided to cover the costs of membership of the league for the 2015/16 season.

The deadline for entries is 8.00pm on Wednesday 13th February for submission to the organisers.  We will need to know the name and date of birth (dob) for each entrant.

As previously notified, the Junior age category is based on their age at midnight on 31st August/1st September preceding the start of the season.

The start times are as follows: 11.30 - under 11 girls; 11.45 - under 11 boys; 12.00 - under 13 girls; 12.15 - under 13 boys; 12.30 - under 15 girls and 12.45 - under 15 boys

Juniors in the park

 

Every Tuesday we are coached by Steve Stredwick.  The Junior Representative is Tony Burgess, so if you have any questions regarding the club then you can email him directly at junior-rep@wdac.org.uk

The Junior section of the club is for anybody from 9 years old up to 16. We have fully qualified coaches running each session to ensure child safety.  Every week we train on a 200m track or a 400m track normally from March through to September depending on when it gets dark at night.  We do different events from sprinting to long distance and sometimes field events e.g. javelin, discus etc. We also have access to a sports hall that we can use during the winter.
