Sunday 20th March saw coach Gwylim Jones take his young charges to a fun event ‘Over The Bales’ – put on to give the younger athletes a taste of the thrills and spills of cross country. Held at the Crossford Bridge facility in Sale the course was on grass and over straw bales as the name suggests.
Gwylim reported “we went to Sale Harriers Over the Bales with a small quad of eight athletes: Under 9 girls Jasmine Greenhalgh 40th 9 min 06 sec Under 9 boys Matthew Wood 6th 5 min 22 sec Edward Jones 15th 5 min 48 sec Daniel Toole 27th 6 min 11 sec Under 11 girls Emily Wood 7th 7 min 12 sec Under 11 boys Ted Ratcliffe 27th 7 min 41 sec Tyler Kizikay 39th 10 min 05 sec Under 13 girls Cerys Jones 14th 13 min 54 sec. Notably Emily Wood was excellent and also her brother Matthew put in another good performance. Special mention also to Daniel Toole as it was his debut competition for Bolton Harriers”.
As always the club would like to thank Gwylim and all the participating athletes.
