Success in Sheffield

Posted: November 30, 2018 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

On Sunday 25th November, Isabel Male (u 15) and David Iliffe (u 17) travelled to the EIS, Sheffield to compete in the Notts AAA open meeting. With heat selection based on times, both Izzy and David ran against senior men.

In the 60 metres, Izzy came 3rd in her heat in 8.12 seconds and 5th in her final in 8.08 seconds. In the 300 metres, David came 1st in 38.7 seconds.

Both Izzy and David were the second fastest in their age group.

Well done both.

No Plantsbrook Session Tonight

Posted: November 27, 2018 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

Reminder: There is no Plantsbrook session tonight. Tony/Nikki/Liz/Meg’s group have 3 Tuesdays at the track. We’re back at Plantsbrook on Tuesday 18th December. See you at the track tonight, 6-8pm.

Plantsbrook Session to Take Place Tonight as Normal

Posted: October 30, 2018 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

Even though it’s half term, we still have Plantsbrook’s sportshall 5.50 – 7.50pm tonight.  This is for the sprints group and anyone in Year 10 or below wishing to do Sportshall competitions.

No dogs allowed on site.

If anyone left a pair of glasses or a drinks bottle 2 weeks ago, it’s your last chance to claim them tonight. If they’re not claimed, I will assume someone at the school left them in the sportshall before we arrived.

Indoor Training at Plantsrook School on Tuesdays

Posted: October 15, 2018 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

On Tuesdays from tomorrow, Tony/Nikki/Paul/Meg’s group (and any other athletes taking part in the Sportshall League) will be training at Plantsbrook School, 5.50pm – 7.50pm.

Meet at the main school entrance & the caretaker (or 1 of us) will direct you to the sportshall. Please wear outdoor shoes & bring clean trainers with you as you won’t be allowed to take part if wearing outdoor footwear.

So you’ll need to bring: clean trainers, a still drink & £2.

A section of the Pay & Display car park opposite the school is reserved for those using the school, so park there for free.
