Club records

Posted: January 19, 2012 by megsamaniac in General Info

Check out the Performance section of the site (click here), where we now have copies of all our club records.  Are there any you can aim to smash this season?!!!

If you are a club member and believe that you have a record, but it isn’t listed on the club record page, please contact with details of your performance.  Please note that for a performance to be a club record it must be done at a recognised event with qualified time keepers/officials.

Have a good weekend….good luck to anyone competing.
