Training Cancelled

Hi Athletes, Parents, Coaches and helpers
It is with great sadness that we are announcing the cancelling of all training sessions at both Wythenshawe Park Athletic Track and Sportcity Manchester until the end of the April 2020, when an update will be given. 

Please see the statement from our National Governing Body inline with the Governments stance:

Coronavirus Statement (updated 17 March) – Athletics & Running

Currently there will be no training sessions held by the club, Club Paalauf is postponded and will be re-scheduled, Primary League this weekend is cancelled. 

I will update on any track and field league meetings as I hear from the leagues, as there are one or two in or very close to April and I suspect they may be cancelled.

Please can I ask you to all take care, try to keep fit and healthy and we look forward to re-starting our sessions in due course and hope you will all support us throughtout this time and come back in droves once we are back training.

Thanks for your support.

Regards Debbie

2018 Road Championship Results

The results of the 2018 road championships are below with Wendy Woodhead and Ed Fazakerley topping the scoreboards:

There’s still time to get your name on a 2019 trophy! Details or on the last page of the fixtures list, but roughly you have to complete at least five races out of the following:

  • Up to three 5Ks
  • One 5M
  • Up to three 10Ks
  • Up to two 10Ms
  • Up to two Half Marathons
  • Up to two Marathons
  • Plus three named races: Wilmslow Half, Swinton Ladies 5.25M and your best Sale Sizzler.

If that seems hard to follow, don’t ask me exactly how the scoring works. Sir Isaac Newton claimed he discovered the mathematics of Calculus whilst trying to advance the science of physics, but I think he was just trying to work out the MANHAC road championships scoring.

Social Night

Saturday 28th September from 7pm at Didsbury Cricket Club M20 2RE

Clear a space in your trophy cabinet and dig out something other than Lycra running gear from your wardrobe: It’s time for a social night!

We’ll be doing the awards for juniors and seniors for the 18/19 cross country and 2019 track.

There’ll be a cold buffet provided and a raffle – so bring some cash – with lots of great prizes (and maybe some lousy ones too).

Cost: £8 adults, £4 kids and £20 for family of 4. Tickets on sale at training.
