Saturday 19th March saw the first open track meeting at Trafford with four members taking their place.
Both Alfie Dodds and Jamie Greenhalgh have just moved into their first year of the U15s and both came away with medals and pbs doing superbly well.
Alfie ran his first ever 100m and got a respectable time of 13.4s. He started off very nervously with a false start, but regained composure and was thrilled with his performance having not trained for running or worn a pair of spike for 2 years due to injury. He’s keen to compete in more running this season.
Both Alfie and Jamie are members of the throwing group at Bolton Harriers and competed in the 4kg shot put. Jamie came out top with a new pb of 8.02m finishing 3rd place overall.
Alfie also got a new pb of 7.43m finished 2nd in his pool and finished 6th overall.
Alfie and Jamie also competed in the 1.25kg discus. Again it was Jamie who came out top. He got a new pb of 20.63 which secured him 2nd place. Alfie also got a new pb of 18.09m giving him 3rd place.
In the u13 boys Joshua Grundy competed in the 75 metres and came home in a big pb of 11.2 secs. He then moved up to 150 metres and got a silver medal with another pb of 21.05 secs.
Benjamin Davies ran the 75 metres in a pb of 11.08 and the 150 metres in 22.39 secs.
Both Ben and Josh have made excellent progress since moving up to Les Hall’s sprinting group.
