Many congratulations to our amazing official Alison Hartopp who recently achieved her Level 4 Starters qualification. Level 4 is a National / International Level qualification – so watch out for Alison in her Red Jacket at the major competitions in 2022! Alison started out as an athlete at Macclesfield Harriers before moving on to endurance/middle distance coaching where she continues to support all ages from U15 upwards, in addition to her officiating roles. Alison gained her Level 1 starter qualification in 2016 and worked hard to rapidly progress to the highest level. Alison fits in her volunteer officiating and coaching roles around her full time day job and often officiates at 2-3 events per week during the summer. Macclesfield Harriers are very fortunate to have such a highly qualified starter officiating at our fixtures and we wish Alison every sucess as she continues her officiating journey.
Many congratulations also to Jim Pendrill who started on his officiating path with us this year and recently gained his Level 1 Field Judge qualification – welcome to the team Jim!
