Wells City Harriers

"A FRIENDLY RUNNING CLUB THAT WELCOMES ATHLETES OF ALL AGES AND ABILITIES"

 

The track & field season got underway with the usual Spring season opener at the Bill Whistlecroft Arena over the weekend of 21st & 22nd April and has continued this past weekend with the Somerset multi-events competition. There’s been some terrific performances, whether by those new to track & field competition or the more seasoned athletes amongst the combined Wells City harrier/Yeovil Olympiads team. Top billing once again probably goes to Elise Thorner for her run in the 2000m Steeplechase last weekend (21st) where she went under 7minutes with her 6.59.04 which is within the European U18 championships qualifying standard for this year. All Harriers should also note that the deadline to enter the County T&F Championships is on Saturday 5th May. Read on for details.
