Northern Athletics Championships - Pontefract Park - 26 January 2019
We had 21 club members competing in these championships, which were held on home soil in Pontefract Park. This included 8 in the senior men's race, 7 in the senior women's and 4 in the U13 Girls. The races were all very competitive and we did not have anybody in the first 100 in any of the races, but the good turnout did give us something to build on next year.

4 of our athletes (3 senior men and 1 U13 Girl) competed in these prestigious championships against many of the best athletes in the country. It was a good experience for them and we had our excellent new gazebo and sail flag on show in a prominent position, as we had done at the Northern Championships.
