Junior Grand Prix – 24th September 2015
A bumper 58 young runners ran in the first race of this season’s Junior Grand Prix on 24th September 2015. This is the biggest turnout we have ever had, with 29 young athletes making their Grand Prix debut.
There were great runs from Josh Collinson (8.32, 1st), Josh Blevins (8.38, 2nd) and Jonny Kidd (8.46, 3rd) who were chased by Alfie Edmundson (8.54, 4th) and Benjamin Maley (9.02, 5th). Five of the younger runners, Maddie Barber, Matthew Maley, Jonathan Maley, Zara Hall and Jessica Dickson flew round one lap of the course proving that it won’t be long before they are catching up with the older juniors.
A big thank you to the parents, coaches and Poly friends who stayed to help out and make the night a great success.
If you are aged 16 or under and would like to give it a go the next race is on 22nd October 2015 at 6.30pm.
