Essex Champs entries: System Error

Paul Merrywest, Championship Secretary, Essex AA, informs us that

"A system error has meant that details of anybody who entered prior to 13:00 on 8th March 2018 in respect of the main championships has been lost.   Athletes will need to re-input their entry again. I  am certain no payment has been taken from their bank account."

Ken Bone R.I.P.

96-year old Ken Bone, Woodford Green Athletic Club's oldest Life Member, passed away at Stirling, north of Edinburgh, in January.

Ken joined the club in 1937, and after his war service years he won the Essex County 440 yards hurdles title on four consecutive years, 1948-51. By then he had become seriously involved in coaching, a field to which he dedicated considerable thought and activity - in an age in which "The Establishment" of our sport tended to think coaches were con-men.

Survey: Changes to Southern CC Champs

The SEAA Endurance Working Group has compiled a survey based on suggestions and proposals received over the past year regarding our Endurance Events. The survey contains ten questions asking for details on your activity in athletics and your opinions on changes to the Masters XC Championships and the Main XC Championships.

Our aim is to ascertain the views of our affiliated club members before making any changes.

It would be appreciated if you could forward this on to your fellow club members, officials and athletes.

Survey is available here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XFBWGK2

This survey will close on the 21st March 2018 and will not accept any answers after that date.
