20.Apr.12 Bingley Harriers – Try Athletics Day
On Tuesday 17th April Bingley Harriers held their first outdoor training session at Beckfoot School following on from the indoor winter sessions. The training was advertised as the England Athletics ‘Try athletics Day’ and and the club welcomed some new attendees wanting to try athletics. The club offered sprinting and middle distance running, long jump, javelin and discus; each group taking turns in the training on offer.
The sessions were held together with the longer distance group based at the Bradford & Bingley Sports Club and saw 59 juniors at Beckfoot together with the usual 20-30 at the Sports Club.
The sessions will continue throughout the summer on Tuesdays 7-8pm for school year 3 upwards and on Thursdays for the older more accomplished athletes, so anyone is welcome to come and try. With the Track & Field season about to start Bingley Harriers are keen to recruit new athletes who want to compete. The distance groups at the sports club expect the juniors to be able to run for 4 miles.
