Weekend Action

Another hot weekend of racing lies ahead for Coalfields Race Team now that the season is well and truly underway!  This weekends festivities begin today with the final Harrier League Cross Country of the winter.  Representing the team, Mick Proud, Angela Campbell and Georgia Campbell will all be turning out in Orange and Blue, joined by Matthew Fearn and Gavin Sword turning out for their respective Athletics Clubs Sunderland Strollers and Sunderland Harriers.  Good luck everyone we all wish you the very best of luck and hope the weather remains calm at least!!! Keep us updated how you get on guys!

Tomorrow sees our attentions turn to what is historically billed as the opening Multisport race of the season where yet again we will have a number of our members turning out in force to get their first early races under their belts!

9 of our athletes:
James Campbell
Billy Lamb
Gavin Sword
Matthew Turnbull
Garry Walker
Michael Wallace
Steve Williams
Chris Wright
And Rob Wright

Will all be toeing the line amongst 371 athletes in the main race tomorrow which generally produces some fast and furious racing right down to the line.  

Special mention must go out to our former founder  treasurer Charlotte Walker.  Although racing as unattached has a very close affinity with everyone at Coalfields and is usually regularly seen on the sidelines rather than behind the start line! Embarking on her very own Multisport journey at the very same race that husband Garry started his!   Lets all wish her all the very best of luck in the novice race.

We would also like to wish any other of our athletes who may not have informed us they are racing or any of our friends the very best of luck this weekend!
