Steeplechasers Needed for British Athletics League – Summer 2013

The club is still looking for male distance runners to compete in the steeplechase in the British Athletics League (BAL) this summer. (The matches are on Saturday 11th May at Cardiff Leckwith Stadium, Saturday 8th June at Abingdon, Saturday 6th July at Kingston-on-Thames and Saturday 3rd August at Kip Keino Athletic Stadium Stoke Gifford Bristol). The standard is not very high in this event, even in Division 3 of the BAL, and it’s worth a potential match points haul of up to a maximum of 28 points at each of the four matches if we can fill the places – so it is essential that we do. If you have reasonable endurance our BAL team manager, Cy Knibb, will be very pleased to hear from you at cy_athletics@hotmail.co.uk . Cy can arrange for you to try the hurdles and organise the necessary training if you are prepared to give it a go. Alternatively contact endurance coach Keith Brackstone at keithatrvp@blueyonder.co.uk .

A similar appeal to the ladies was successful in discovering some real talent who hadn’t tried the event before. So come on guys let’s see what you’re made of.
