West Yorkshire Track and Field League Meeting 1 – 23rd April at Spenborough AC

West Yorkshire Track Field League – Meeting 1
Sunday 23rd April 2023 at Spenborough AC

There was a fantastic turnout of athletes from Holmfirth Harriers at the opening fixture of the West Yorkshire Track and Field League. We had 24 athletes competing across the full range of events and age groups. It was nice to see some new faces competing as well.

There was lots of encouragement and support on display for friends and training partners which helped make for a positive atmosphere. Well done to all the athletes who competed. Regardless of performance or position everybody gave their all and we can’t ask any more than that.

This league is all about providing a platform for athletes to try and improve and be the best they can be. There is the additional challenge of trying to score points for themselves and their team. Our athletes did really well on both counts producing plenty of personal bests and scoring loads of points to.

We really hope that more athletes will join us next time so please sign up and come along to represent your club. The next fixture is Wed 10th May and entries need to be in by 3rd May. It’s a great series of meetings and it’s a great experience for everyone who gives it a try.
