West Cheshire Athletic Club Newsletter

 

28th April 2017


We mentioned the first three items in last month’s newsletter, but they’re worth repeating, so please read!


YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU
Marshals are needed for the Chester Half Marathon being held on Sunday 21st May.
Please let Ellie Robinson know if you’re able to join the club’s team  on Sunday 21st May this year. We need approximately 27 people.
It’s always a fun morning watching the race and encouraging the runners. You’ll also receive a  T-shirt and a goody bag as a thanks from the organisers (Active Leisure Events).
TIME TO STRENGTHEN OUR COACHING TEAM
T
he future of our club is reliant on our volunteer coaching staff – and it’s now time to seriously look at increasing the numbers of our qualified coaches.
If you’re a parent of an athlete, or know someone you think would fit the bill, please shout up. We need you to inspire, supporte and develop athletes across all events, ability levels, aspirations, and ages.
We’ll support you every inch of the way if you want to step onto the coaching pathway, and get yourself a coaching qualification
If you’re interested, please email Dennis


CLUB MEMBERSHIP FEES ARE NOW DUE –  FINAL REMINDER
If you’ve not paid, you’re not insured and won’t be allowed to train or compete. You should have had a link to renew your membership by email. Please let Debbie Baker know if you haven’t had this, or are not looking to renew your membership.

ANDY HEADS CLUB CHARGE IN THE CAPITAL
Andy Carter celebrated a new personal best time of three hours six minutes 22 seconds at the London Marathon.
Carter was the first of six West Cheshire AC members who completed the 26.2 miles course in the capital, ahead of Ian Gloyne-Phillips (3:14:20), and Wullie McGarrell (3:17:08) who also both posted new personal bests.
Keely Smith, who warmed up for the marathon by contributing towards a women’s team victory for West Cheshire AC at the Essar Chester Spring Five Miles Road Race earlier this month, clocked 3:24:41 to better her previous best achieved at the recent Wrexham Marathon, ahead of Luke Ellis with a new personal best of 3:29:12, and Dave Bish (4:55:13).
Congratulations to sprinter Laura Turley clocked yet another personal best of 12.42 seconds in the 100m at Loughborough last weekend.
Well done both!
