20.Aug.12 Olympic excitement inspires Kendal's club and community
The excitement of the Olympics inspired 80 youngsters and their families to join in the Kendal Amateur Athletics Club (KAAC) Community Fun Day on Tuesday the 14th August.
On a beautiful sunny afternoon, youngsters were given a chance to try out different running, jumping and throwing activities helped by coaches and athletes from KAAC.
After some refreshments, face painting and fun activities, the youngsters aged 3-13 (and one brave parent) then took part in flat races and a longer ‘marathon’ event emulating their heroes on the track.
Winners for each age group were awarded medals with ribbons in the colours of the Olympic rings. A final team relay brought together young athletes from KAAC with community members in mixed teams representing the major athletic nations. The Jamaica team, like their namesakes proved impossible to beat!
If there are any keen and aspiring young athletes who would like more information give Lisa Screen a ring 01539 720639 or email@example.com.
