Macclesfield Harriers & Athletic Club

Anyone seen the club flag ?

.... a maroon job, with 'Macc Harriers' on... have a rummage in your garage or loft, it must be somewhere !!

Thanks in advance..... A year's supply of shower gel if you return it !


MDOC Night Street League

From Manchester and District Orienteer via Clare Griffin, thanks Clare... a series of road (mostly) orienteering events open to anyone and which have been popular with club members in the past.


Physio down the track....

From Bob 'Just to let you know that due to holidays the next visit by a physio from the John Honey practice will be one week earlier on Tues evening the 27th July.

It should be Ross Whiteside who is covering for Mike Honey while he is on his very long sabbatical.'

Summer Ball - Many Thanks !!

From  Barbara  Murray .. 'Saturday 12th July saw the very first Harriers Summer Ball excellently organised by Anna Carey in aid of the Macclesfield Athletics Development Fund - many thanks indeed Anna !

 The evening started off with a welcome from Anna and some fun courtesy of her friend Jo.    A lovely three course meal was followed by some lovely singing by Helen before the Band got the dancing underway.  

Throughout the evening the attendees bid against each other in the paper favours auction for items as diverse as 4 nights in a cabin in Snowdonia, car washing by the U15 boys team,  to one hour of 1:1 coaching with Bob.  

The total sum raised from the auction and raffle was an amazing £2600, for donation to the Athletics Development Charity towards the indoor athletics and multi-sport facility.    

Thank you to everyone who attended, donated and bid for favours and raffle prizes and made for such an enjoyable evening and again, special thanks to Anna from all of us.'

Thanks for the write-up Barbara - and don't forget Barbara's daughter Seonaid is taking part in the Commonwealth Games Triathlon Relay in the next few days (Saturday 26th I think), so keep your eyes out !
