Thanks to all those who turned up, athletes, parents and helpers (including those parents that were co-opted).
The reason for the event was to enable athletes to compete in events that they haven't done over the season. For the under 11's group there may have been some events elsewhere but it was assumed that most hadn't competed in these events, so it was good to see a good turn out from that age group.
In the older age groups some athletes were more adventurous that others - some stuck to the events that they have done all season - although for Alfie Else this resulted in a PB (albeit wind assisted) and others did fill in gaps to qualify for the club's multi-event awards.
