Reports from exciting week of action!
On Wednesday, Niamh and Lauren took part in the Summer cup 2.5 mile handicap race at South Beach. Niamh scored a big PB with 16:08, knocking 12 seconds off her previous best. Lauren recorded a time of 15:32 on her season debut and was fastest female overall.

The Poly PB Open was a welcome change to compete during the summer months - with our athletes giving it their best in at time very tricky conditions at Whitley By. Alexander Robson-Lamb was in fine form, taking part in his first ever high jump competition, he produced a jump of 1.25m to set the U11 club record and finish 1st in his age group. Also in PB form was India Gorvett, showing superb technique to clear 1.20m on the 3rd time of asking, to take a superb age group victory. Isla Bell produced some solid jumps, with a best clearance of 1.25m. In the long jump, Alexander produced a fine 3.52m, with India also jumping well.

On track, Caitlin Creaby was in fine form, and was just outside her PB in the 100m. in the 150m, Caitlin set a massive PB of 22s, as she was 2nd fastest in age group. Alexander rushed over from the high jump to record the 3rd fastest time of the day in the 60m, whilst India recorded another PB in the 150m with a strong run.

It was another busy weekend of parkruns, with Frankie and Niamh setting PB's at South Beach, with Grace and Richard also running well.  Jack Webster, Daniel and William Hall also produced fine runs. Well done all!

Athletics can only run thanks to the support of volunteers. One thing we are desperately short of is FIELD OFFICIALS. These are volunteers who can help run field events at T&F comps, in particular the NEYDL. As a participating club, we are required by the rules to provided qualified officials at NEYDL events, something we have struggled to do last year. This year, if we are unable to fulfill our obligation to provide officials, we will not only lose points, but also we will be limited in the numbers of athletes we can enter into field events. This is something that we cannot allow to happen. 

If you wish to consider starting on the officiating  journey, then please know that you will have the full support of the club and all fees will be paid in full by the club. Officials receive expenses, and have opportunities to progress if the ambition is there. Officials from Blyth have recently been in action at World-Class Diamond League events, and will testify that it is the most rewarding experience.
