Just to remind all our athletes in the Under 15s upwards that the first of the Sale Open Indoor Meetings is on Sunday 6th December at Sportcity, 10.30am start. For those who've not done one before they are great experience of competing on the full indoor straight and banked-bend tracks, and in a range of field events including long jump, high jump and shot. You can enter on the day at £5 per event but get there for 10.00am at least if you intend to do so. If you want to see the event schedule Ian has all the details, catch him at Tuesday's training session. If you can't make this Sunday's event, Ian will give you all the future dates so you can put them in your diary.

For an athlete's view of what it's like, ask Tom K, Charlotte or Jack, all of whom competed throughout last winter and did very well.

Great start to new Sports Hall season

Our biggest ever squad of junior Harriers got off to a great start in the first of the Greater Manchester Sportshall League matches at Sportcity. A 30-strong group were highly competitive across all the age groups and some excellent individual performances were backed up by some great team efforts in the relays. It was great to see so many of our newer athletes enjoying a first taste of competitive action and to see all our team being backed by such enthusiastic support from their parents and friends.

We will be able to see our position in the league table once we get the finalised results later this week, in the meantime well done on behalf of the coaching team to all our athletes. Let's see if we can build on this success in the next match on the 13th December!
