Harriers Youngsters at the DASH

It was a great day out at Sportscity, Manchester on Saturday June 29th. 12 athletes from the Club’s Sportshall Group took part in the DASH quadrathlon and some good performances were achieved in the sunshine.

Full Results HERE

Top 10 finishes were achieved by Sam Farnworth (7th U11), James Corrigan (9th U9) and Emily Raine (9th U11).

Even more pleasing was the fact that all of the athletes who had completed the 600m time trial on Wednesday 19 June at Witton Park reduced or matched their personal bests and they were – Kirsty Cura;  Macy    Cura; Sanaa Shaik;  Kieron Carroll; Emily Laycock; Olivia Blow; Sam Farnworth; Emily Raine; James Corrigan and Chloe Jameson  – so well done to all of them.

Amy Davies ran – June 18th – for her school (St Peters R C Primary School) in the 700m race after being offered the place as a result of another girl having to drop out with an injury. It was the Blackburn & Darwen Junior Schools Running event.The Race was for Year 6 girls and Amy is only Year 5 but the school found out that Amy could take part in the race. There were 27 schools involved including Amy’s and she and won it which was a fine result.

Hannah & Kate beat their Dad!!

Well, the Cookson family certainly know how to do it is style. On June 9th they took a car ride up to Morecambe to enter Hannah and Kate into the 1 mile Fun Run and dad John into the 10k.

Well – Hannah won the race and got a CD Player for her fine performance and Kate came 6th. As for Sportshall Coach dad, well he says he was at the Race but they don’t seemed to have picked him up on the Results radar.

But here ’tis the proof that he was there – well in Morecambe!!WP_000099

Driving Through The Rain!!

On a rained soaked day at Witton Park, Under 11 Boys and Girls turned out to compete against one another in the annual three Team Competition between Blackburn Harriers; Hyndburn AC and the reigning holders of the Competition Trophy, Kirkham Grammar School.

Events included Hurdles; 75m; 150m; 500m; Long Jump; Triple Jump; Shot; Javelin; Shuttle Relays and 4 x 100 Relays – and the children gave it everything, shouting and cheering on their team mates and ignoring what were dreadful conditions.

There some really good contests, but overall, Kirkham Grammar School came out on top again this year with a combined total of 197 points, with Hyndburn in 2nd place on 164 points and just narrowly behind in 3rd place were Blackburn with 164 points.
