The Club is organising 2 Open Track and Field Meetings at Ellesmere Port Sports Village to celebrate it’s 25th anniversary. The meetings will be held on Saturday 18th March (Sprints, Hurdles, and Jumps), and Sunday 26th March (Middle Distance Running and Throws).

Club members can enter the 2 fixtures via an entry form now available from the Track Container Office which must be returned to the Track Container Office when completed, or the live entry link for online entries is: https://wcac.niftyentries.com/Track-Field-Open-Meetings-2023

VOLUNTEERS are also urgently needed to make the 2 fixtures a success. Club members are needed to help set up the equipment before the fixtures and tidy away at the end, as well as field judges, track judges, timekeepers, and help with the results/medals.

Alan Morris and Tim Palmer are also keen to help anyone wanting to learn more about the role of Field Referee and Track Referee.
