2 relay teams from RSCAC (Under 13 boys and Under 15 boys) were at the Muller Grand Prix at Birmingham’s Alexander Stadium on Sunday, competing against the best in the country. It was a fantastic experience to compete at the same event as Adam Gemili, Dina Asher-Smith and KJT!
Results of Saturdays meeting are here.
A great all round team performance.
We finished 4th on the day and 5th overall which will mean that unfortunately next year we will be back to Division 4.
Lets hope that next year we can get more jumpers, pole vaulters, hurdlers and steeplechasers, as that will make things much easier for us.
There are very many great action photos on the Club website (flickr) taken by Marc Kirsten. Thanks Marc.
There were new Club records , Personal Bests and Season Bests set at the meeting.

Apologies if we have missed anyone.
We have apologized to all the competing clubs regarding the absence of starting blocks due to the padlock being changed on the storage unit and no one present having a key.
Finally just to remind you that the League Cup Finals will be taking place on August 31st at Nottingham about which we will be sending full details once received.
Report by John Topliss
Nicholas Pryce, who is coached by Joe Caines, was in outstanding form this weekend in the English Senior Championships in Manchester Sportcity.
On Sunday he won a silver medal in the 200m final in a time of 21.14, in far from ideal conditions and running into a minus 0.8m headwind.
This would have been a new PB for him had he not recorded 21.13 in his semi with a minus 0.7m headwind.
His previous legal PB was 21.30. Earlier in the day he comfortably recorded a 21.48 in his heat.
On Saturday he finished 5th in the 100m Final with a time of 10.66 into a minus 0.6m headwind. A very close finish with the second place getting 10.62.
His qualifying times in the heats and semis were 10.87 and 10.80 also into headwinds.
His final time of 10.66 is very close to his handtimed PB of 10.6 set back in 2014, which is also the Club record.
Full results here.
Well done Nicholas !
