Throws Event - great success

We had a great turnout for Macclesfield Harriers first 'Have a Go at Throwing' event on Wednesday night (30th August).  28 participants +  6 coaches +  sunshine  = a lot of fun. Many were trying throwing for the first time and had a go at javelin, discus, shot put and hammer over the course of the evening under our coaches expert guidance.  Many thanks to all the coaches and to England Athletics for their support.  Looking forward to the next one?

Many thanks

Barbara Murray

Trafford Grand Prix, 25th July

A message from Bill Yale, Louisa Whittingham's grandad (and a very talented athlete in his day too !) to whom many thanks....

'Once again, Macclesfield's outstanding junior athlete, Sian Heslop produced a superb run in tonight's Trafford Grand Prix. In the Under 15 1500 metres she finished in 4mins 31.79secs, a time that has now taken her to the top of the British Athletics Power of Ten Under 15 rankings!
Two other Macclesfield runners also performed well at this meeting, Matthew Brown completing the 800 metres in 2m 06.15 secs and Louisa Whittingham gaining another PB in the 3000 metres (but not quite able to keep up with her dad!).'

Interestingly, Sian's time would have been a world record had she run it in 1960.
