Juniors in Action at Northern Cross Country Relays – Saturday 9 th October 2010

Due to the Cross Country League Race the following only 2 teams of junior athletes from Holmfirth Harriers travelled to Sheffield on Saturday to contest the Northern Athletics Cross Country Relay Championships. This is a new event for Northern Athletics as and such there were one or two teething problems, resulting in incorrect timings and poor marshalling. Despite this our junior teams achieved great results against tough opposition.

 

U13 boy’s team of Aaron Kettlewell, Andrew Farquhar and Lewis Byram performed superbly and just missed out on Bronze medals by a whisker. Aaron Kettlewell once again in his role as lead out man was first off for the boys, Aaron completed the 1 mile course in 5.57 handing on to Andrew in 9 th place. A well meaning marshal prevented Andrew leaving the change over zone and as a result the team lost around 10 seconds on their nearest rivals. Andrew handed over to Lewis Byram on last leg in 11 th position in 6.19. Lewis took up the challenge and ran with his usual determination. He lifted the team to 5 th overall and in so doing ran the fastest time of the day but the boys were frustrated to finish only a few seconds down on 3 rd place.

 

U13 girl’s team of Olivia Sykes and Lucy and Erica Byram also took up the challenge. Olivia lead off the team running strongly as ever and returning in a time of 6.17 and handing on to Lucy in 7 th place. Lucy managed to gain one place on her rivals and handed over to sister Erica after running a time of 6.32. Erica also ran well bringing the team home in 6 th position and running a time of 6.28.

Junior Harriers in Action in Yorkshire Road Races  


Can't see the images above?. See them on Flickr here.

Not to be outdone by their senior counterparts juniors Harrriers, in action last Saturday in the Yorkshire Road Race and Relays championships, also managed to cover themselves in glory coming away with 3 sets of team medals, 2 gold and 1 silver and 3 individual medal winners, a great haul against many of the big city Yorkshire teams.

 

The first race of day set the tone of the team’s golden streak. Olivia Sykes and Erica Byram literally ran away from the rest of the field and finished first and second, Olivia in a time of 7.56 over this 2.2km course and Erica second in 8.11. Lucy Byram was only a few places back in 5 th in a time of 8.29 and this was more than enough for the girls to clinch gold teams medals as well as individual medals. The girls were backed up by team mate Daisy Hinchcliffe who ran strongly finishing in a time of 9.49 in 16 th place.


Second race of day and another Holmfirth victory, Lewis Byram, lead from the gun in the U13 boys race extended his lead throughout the race and winning with an impressive 20 seconds margin. Seth Waterman and Aaron Kettlewell, both ran well in the chasing group and ended the race with a sprint to the line, Seth just getting the verdict although both boys were awarded the same time 7.36, Seth 5 th place and Aaron 6 th. Bradley Bedford was also never far off the pace and finished only 8 seconds down in 8 th place in a time of 7.44. With 4 boys in the top 8 the team award was never really in doubt and the boys took home gold medals and Lewis an individual gold. Isaac Shepherd in his first race at this level ran really well finishing in 29 th place in a time of 9.15.


The U15 girls race run over 4.4km the same course and distance as the senior women was also a treat for Holmfirth spectators. Ruby Sykes, Lucy Farquhar and Sophie Spencer all ran strongly over this distance , worked their way through the field and finished in 6 th, 7 th and 11 th position respectively, Ruby in a time of 17.14, Lucy in 17.20 and Sophie 17.51. This great team performance earned the girls silver team medals. Sophie Williams had a gallant run over this long course and finished!

 

Aaron Arthur and brothers Robert and Eddie Hinchliffe ran well in the U15 boys race, also over the 4.4km course, Aaron finishing in 10 th place in 16.10, Robert 15 th in 17.20 and Eddie 16 th in 17.25.

 

The U17 age group, run as a relay rather than a straight race, featured Max Kaye for Holmfirth running as an individual in the first leg of the relay. Max was in contention throughout the race and just missed out on first place in a sprint to the line. Also running over the 4.4km course Max finished in a blisteringly fast time of 13.26, second fastest time of the day in the U17 age group.

 

With the Yorkshire Championships under their belt junior Harriers will next be in action in the North of England Road Relay Championships on October 2 nd in Manchester.


Star Track 2010 successful again


Holmfirth Harriers promoted a total of four Avia Star Track two day athletic events during the schools holidays and despite some monsoon weather they were again very well attended and the young athletes really enjoyed themselves. The four events at Scissett, Salendine Nook, Netherhall and Holney were attended by over 230 children, with each taking part in a wide range of track and field events which were timed and measured so that each youngster could receive a certificate to see how far up the Avia Track & Field ladder they had progressed. In addition all the children received an athletics goodie bag supplied by Avia which contained sports kit.


The four events were organised by John McFadzean and he would like to thank the schools, and Neighbourhood Policing teams for their support. Plus a further 20 coaches and young athletes attached to the club who ensured that the athletes received quality qualified coaching and had a leader with each group to help organise hen and get them to the next event on time. The weather in particular at Honley was dire and it is great credit to the coaches and helpers that more athletes turned up on the second day than the first and all had a great two days.


The photographs show some the of the youngsters with Richard Szostak trying the hammer throw and a group photo at the end of the Scissett event which shows how much the young athletes had enjoyed themselves and wearing some of kit they received in the goodie bags.

Fun in Athletics


Holmfirth Harriers promoted Fun in Athletics with West Yorkshire Police and Honley High School.
“This event which is now in its 19 year is aimed at junior school children and introducing them into athletics. It ran over four consecutive Fridays with the children receiving coaching in individual and team events.
The children received qualified coaching from members of Holmfirth Harriers coaching team over the first three weeks in a variety of events covering all athletic disciplines. On the final day they were divided into teams where they had to put what they had learnt into practice through a mini Olympic competition.

John McFadzean the Youth Development Officer at Holmfirth Harriers and Huddersfield South NPT Police Officer helped organise the events alongside Sergeant Nicola Brown who also assisted with the coaching.

This event again proved to be a great success. The children really enjoyed themselves, giving their all in every event which made it an enjoyable experience for all the coaches and helpers. The coaches were supported by a number of teenage athletes from Holmfirth Harriers and Honley High School who acted as team leaders, encouraging and organising the young children over the four weeks.
All the volunteers from the Police and Holmfirth Harriers gave up their own time and John would like to thank the coaches, parents and helpers, young and old for their assistance in again making this a great event.

The photograph shows most of the 40 young children, who were presented with certificates, Easter eggs and medals on the Olympics Night by Tom Cock one of the clubs elder statesman which shows that athletics crosses the ages.

This is one of the highlights of the year with so many youngsters giving their all and fully participating. Everyone gets caught up in the event and the noise of encouragement on the last night had to be heard to be believed.

2012 will be too soon, but the 2020 Olympics may see an athlete who started here representing Great Britain as some of the children are really talented and fast.

In the U17 men race, Max Kaye and Thomas Travis-Pollard, also both with another year in the age group, ran well coping well with the extremely fast pace of the race and the legendary hills of Roundhay Park. Max finished in 34th position and Thomas in 39th. Ruby Sykes, another athlete at the bottom of her age group had a good run to finish 129th U15 girl.

North of England Young Athlete Relays

U13s show the North what they are made of!!On Sunday 2 teams of Junior athletes took part in the North of England Young Athlete Relays held at Leeds Met University in Leeds. Both teams performed brilliantly against all the best clubs in the North. The U13 boys teams were off first with Aaron Kettlewell as lead off man. With 30 teams on the line the first 400m were a battle for position. Aaron ran strongly and held his own against boys up to 18months his senior. He handed over to Aaron Arthur in 16th position having run a time of 11.06 for the 2 mile course. Aaron Arthur ran strongly, managed to close the gap on the teams ahead and brought the team through to 11th position running a time of 11.13 handing over to Lewis Byram.
