Belated best wishes from all at the Club to Lucy Ashe on the occassion of her marriage last weekend! Does anyone have a photo of the happy event?!
Have a great Christmas day and try to get out for a run – there are still 24 hours to do so. If you don’t manage a run, look at what you could eat to keep your diet within the ‘normal’ range.
Don’t forget that a number of the local parkruns are putting on extra events on Christmas day and New Years day – Canons Parkrun are doing both days and Harrow Parkrun will also take place on 1st January (9am & 10.30am) – a chance to run twice that day if you get your skates on!
Next Saturday on December 29th the Club is running a Cross-country training session in preparation for races in January 2019.
Time: 9:30-10:30 Venue: Bannister Stadium
What: Cross-country training in preparation for races in January 2019
Who: anyone in school year 5 and above.
Bring trainers to warm-up in and spikes to run in (in case the grass is muddy – NB: it will be!).
Please email harrowacsecretary@gmailcom to confirm you are attending.
Note that Bannisters is now closed to normal training evenings until re-opening on Wednesday, 2nd January 2019.
Operation Ouch! Received some news we needed to share – broadcast starts Wednesday 2nd January at 5.30pm on CBBC – Rio’s story will be told over the course of four episodes in four short films
The junior athletes took part in filming back in summer for Operation Ouch!’s programme about Harrow AC athlete, Rio Woolf, getting new prosthetics made/fitted and all the activities he does, including training with our Beginners group. An exciting day and no doubt all looking forward to seeing the results.
More information is on Rio’s Facebook page – shared on our page – which include these words which we all support “Rio hopes that by sharing his story, young viewers and their parents will feel more comfortable around amputees of all ages, but especially when they meet children with limb-differences, so that able-bodied people – adults and children – will be more accepting and understanding and show a positive attitude towards our limb different community”
