Bourne Town Harriers enter two track and field leagues:
1. Lincolnshire League – consisting of four matches each season. Current season all matches are being held at Boston Princess Royal Arena on the following dates:
i. Sun 30 April
ii. Sun 25 June
iii. Sun 23 July
iv. Sun 3 Sep
These matches are for all ages 9 – 99. There is a set timetable and this can be found at http://bostonanddistrictac.com/bdac/page41.html.
Lisa Richardson at email@example.com organises the team for these matches as only 4 athletes can compete in each event from each club, so popular events must be managed. Under 11 can do 2 events (one track and one field), u13/u15 and u17 can do 3 events plus a relay and adults can do any number of events.
Any one wanting to enter can do so via Lisa.
2. Youth Development League – this is split into 2 groups – upper and lower. The Lower age group is for u13 and u15, whilst the Upper is for u17 and u20 athletes. We have entered this league as part of a composite team with Sleaford Striders, Grantham AC and Newark AC and this teams are picked in advance of the event so that each club is represented well in their best event.
Dates for these events are:
i. Sat 22 April -
ii. Sun 30 April – Upper age group at Grantham
iii. Sat 20 May – Lower age group at Sutton in Ashfield
iv. Sun 28 May – Upper age group at Derby
v. Sun 18 June – Lower age group at Derby
vi. Sun 25 June – Upper age group at Derby
To support our athletes we are also offering a taster day at Loughborough university track. A prestige track where many GB athletes of all sporting disciplines train. The price to attend is £10 and coaching will be given on the day from 1.30pm – 3.30pm.
We also try to coach our athletes at local athletics tracks such as Grantham and Peterborough so emails will go out to members when we plan one of these sessions.
