Macclesfield Harriers & Athletic Club

Track and Field Program

Macclesfield Harriers and AC will be participating in two Track and Field
Leagues during 2006.  Details of these 2 leagues are as follows: (dates also in main event calendar)...


North of England Track and Field

Anyone who is planning to run in the North of England Track and Field Match on Saturday 6 May should note that the venue for the meeting is Bolton (Leverhulme Park Athletics Stadium) as indicated in the info on the NoEAA web ( ) and not at Wigan as stated in the Macclesfield Harriers fixtures calendar.

I hope everyone who competes or helps at this meeting has a successful day.


NW Indoor Sportshall Final

Macclesfield Harriers will have to clear a space in their trophy cabinet after a clean sweep by the under 13 and under 15 boys teams in the North West Indoor Sportshall final. Against clubs from across the North West, the boys proved that they could pull out top performances when it really mattered.

Team Manager: Simon Price

Team members: James Carey, Stuart Price, Jack Andrew, Ed Williams, Matt Hamilton, Josh Edgar, Calum Murray, Lloyd Hilton, Alex Ranshaw, Joe Roddis, Toby Jennings, Joe Hills, Matt Wallis, Matt Wheelton, Stephen Wearne.

Also, competing in the North West final were boys and girls teams in the under 11 age group.  It was a great achievement for these teams to have reached the final and they acquitted themselves well, finishing in 4th and 5th place respectively. In the under 15 girls competition, Rowena Evans had been invited to take part in the shot put. She fully justified her selection by putting 8.48m to take the silver medal.

UK Sportshall Athletics Final

Nine Macclesfield Harriers joined young athletes from all over the UK to contest the prestigious UK Sportshall Athletics Final on Sunday at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham. The Harriers had gained places on the Cheshire team, representing the North West in the event, a showcase for future talent in the UK, and were thrilled that former sportshall and current Commonwealth champion Kelly Sotherton was on hand to present the awards.
