Open Track and Field Competitions

Posted: July 29, 2019 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

If you’d like some extra competitions over the summer, here are a list of local(ish) open competitions.  You enter yourself and compete purely for times / distances instead of also gaining points for the club.  In some cases there are closing dates meaning you have to enter one or two weeks beforehand, so make sure you explore each one carefully. Good luck! If you know of any others that haven’t been included on the list, please let us know.

If you wish to travel further to compete, a full list of competitions cane be found on the Power of 10 website: https://www.thepowerof10.info/fixtures/fixtureslookup.aspx

Midlands Track and Field League – July 6th

Posted: July 21, 2019 by Rascasse in Race reports

Results from the 3rd T&F League match are available here.

A special thanks to our officials Ruth, Jane, Derek , Fiona, Ian, Arnie and Sherri. A busy weekend for all of them with the Heart of England meeting at Wyndley on Sunday.

There were many excellent performances by our rather small team.
Last meeting is at Wyndley on Saturday 3rd August, where we all have to show what it really means to compete at our home track.

As far as we can see there were 3 new Personal Bests.

Asha Dacres in winning the B 200m. A 0.7 secs improvement.
Cerys Deakin in the 400m.
Sam Caswell in the 100m.

Great running in all of the relays.
Both the Mens teams were very close to the Club records (just 0.1 secs off the 4x100m relay). The handover between Nick and Kane was the best we have seen by any of our teams. Wow!

The 4x400m relay splits were (Thank you Ruth)

Women
Georgia 70.2
Megan 76.1
Cerys 72.1
Caitlin 69.6

Men
Kane 53.9
Alex 52.3
Shem 50.6
Nick 48.0

Results Round Up – June 2019

Posted: June 20, 2019 by Rascasse in Race reports

Midlands Masters – June 9th

Sunday 9th June, we had three athletes competing in the Midland Masters Champs with excellent performances.
They are:

Lorna Foster W55.
Hammer 2nd 28.63m – New Club record (was 28.53m held by Lorna)
Shot Put 2nd 8.76m
Discus 2nd 24.32m

Kevin Brown M50
Discus 1st 43.08m – New Championship Best Performance !

David Price M75
Javelin 2nd 22.20m

Midlands Track and Field League – June 16th

We had some excellent results from our rather small team (we had 27 empty scoring spots) so lets hope for a better turn out for the next meeting at Telford on Saturday the 6th July.

We had 3 of our athletes who are over 55 covering 9 events between them so lets go for it.

We could not see any new club records and just found one equaled PB which was Georgia Delaney in the 400m but that was hardly surprising considering the variable weather.

RSCAC was able to put out all 4 relay teams, and our two mens teams took first places in both relays.

A special thanks to our officials: Jane Fleming, Katie and Chris Jennings, Fiona and Ian Smith, Sherri Smart, Arnie Evans, Maureen Lewington and Sandra McDonald.

Full link to the results will be posted here when available.

We had some athletes competing in other meetings at the weekend.

BMC Events

Shaun Evans ran a splendid PB time of 14.42.69 at the BMC Grand Prix 5000m in Loughborough.

Elsewhere at the Tipton BMC race on Tuesday the 18th, Joseph Martin won the 800m A Race, and smashed his own 800m PB by a whopping 1 sec (in the process breaking his own U17 club record), in a time of 1.55.0.

Some high caliber middle & long distance performances from both athletes.

YouTube Playlist

We have a Youtube playlist here.

If you know of any videos featuring club athletes, email the video link to rscac1973@gmail.com so they can be added to our playlist.
