TRACK & FIELD

 

  

Burnden have long been a recognised running club on the roads and in the cross-country leagues for some time now. We are also making inroads and becoming known in the fell-running community. It is now time to try to get some recognition in the discipline of track and field.

Northern Masters (www.nvac.co.uk) host several meetings a year and any vet can compete in any of these except the Championships in May, you need to be a member of Northern Masters to compete there. If you are a veteran and would like to chance your arm throwing the javelin, or see just how fast you can run a 400 metre lap in, these meetings are a great place to start. I have put down the dates and venues of these meetings below, but if you would like any more details or just want to discuss taking part contact me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or see me on a Monday or a Wednesday night at training. The cost of taking part is £5 for 4 events! The track events run are the 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500 and 3000 metres. The field events vary at each venue. 7 PM START
