We've had World Cup football, Wimbledon, Le Tour de France and the fabulous summer of televised sport continued today with 4 hours of track and field action from the English Schools Athletic Championships from Birmingham on Sky Sports 3. Eagerly awaited by myself as so many of the county athletes were performing in vests supplied by FASTRAX and so the programme becomes nothing short of a 4 hour advert for us but of course for our competitors also. If you haven't already done so, why not check out our website.. http://www.fastrax-online.co.uk/ .
As always of course some great performances but sadly for many their national title is the height of their career whilst many defeated finallists go on to greater glory later. But the winners certainly enjoy the moment and why not...
I recall representing Lancashire Schools in these
Quite an interesting experience!
Sadly whilst many of the other county runners enjoyed a very "sociable" Saturday night away (think a mixed team of teenagers!) after the two days of competition, our Lancashire team was back in Manchester early evening. A real anti-climax!
After yesterday's 3 mile tempo run on the canal I enjoyed a 6 mile easy run on the trail. Another visit to Fewston beach as I now call it. Need 10 tomorrow for another par week of 50.
Any readers have English Schools Track & Field Champs. memories to share?
