Yorkshire Combined Event Championships with Combined Event Open Medal Meeting and Yorkshire Race Walk Championships

Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th August 2013, Beckett Park Athletics Stadium, Leeds

Please find attached Combined Events and Race Walking Prospectus 2013 Yorkshire Combined Events Championships and Yorkshire Race Walking Championships. If this event isn’t of interest to you personally, I would be really grateful if you could forward it to others who might be interested. Both of these events disappeared from the calendar in the past and were reinstated last year, they proved to be very popular and the standard of competition was excellent , so it would be great if they were well supported again this year.

An Open Combined Event Medal Meeting  is running alongside the Yorkshire Championships. This is  for any athletes who wish to compete in a  combined events competition, even though they  do not qualify as a Yorkshire athlete (North/West/South Yorkshire) by birth or by residency, (continuous residence in the North/South/West Yorkshire for 9 months). Athletes of the same gender and age groups will compete together throughout the competition, the results will be separated  for the Yorkshire Championships  and the Open Medal Meeting.

There is no minimum standard required to enter  these competitions and there are events for all athletes of U13  up to and including Seniors.

U15/U17 Yorkshire Team for Northern Athletics Intercounty Match, Saturday 20th July 2013, Costello Stadium, Hull

The selection meeting took place this week and I’ll be contacting the team in the coming days. Please bear with me it’s a large team and it takes a while to get hold of everyone, so  don’t presume you haven’t been selected if I don’t contact you straight away, I purposely don’t use any particular order when I contact the team. As soon as I have received positive replies from everyone I will circulate a full team sheet.

If you miss out on selection this time round please don’t be disappointed. I know how hard you all work and the level of support you receive from parents and coaches etcetera  is outstanding and if we were allowed to  take an even larger team to the competition we would always be able to fill it with extremely talented athletes because of that.
