Bristol & West Athletes Head for UKA Trials at Birmingham this Weekend

24 Jun

A number of the club’s athletes are heading for Birmingham this weekend (Friday 25 to Sunday 27 June 2010) to compete in the UK Athletics Championships. Some may be seeking selection for the European Championships in Barcelona, whilst some will be looking for times that might see them selected for the various home countries teams in this year’s Commonwealth Games and for others it will be simply a case of gaining experience at National Championship level.

Athletes involved are:


800 metres – Tom Marley

1,500 metres – Steve Mitchell and Rich Peters (if he recovers from injury)

5,000 metres – Tom Russell

10,000 metres – Jon Wills


800 metres – Ruth Mitchell (still to confirm)

5,000 metres – Kate Goodhead

10,000 metres – Claire Hallissey

We wish them all luck and hope that they all perform as they would like.
