Juniors on track (and field)
Last month there were a series of open meetings at Cheltenham Harriers’ Prince of Wales stadium on Wednesday evenings (our Juniors training evening!).
Some of our Juniors participated on both track and field. For many it was their first time competing at an athletics meeting on a proper track, so was a good experience and some tried out new events for them.

From Our Under 11s Juniors:
Aria Stavrakakis (aged 9) came second in her U11 age group In the long jump (2.29m);
Ted Lockhart (aged 9) ran 600m in under 2m 30s
From our Teens’ Group:
Caitlin Musgrove (U15) did her first track 200m in 33.4s (quicker than her coach!)
Well done to Aria, Caitlin and Ted for having a go at these events. It's all part of the athletic development.
