A number of Woodford athletes competed last weekend in two of the very limited competitions available to UK athletes under the COVID secure protocols. Those competitions were At Lee Valley where a number of young sprinters competed and there was a good TJ performance from Shanara Hibbert. Several others competed at Nuneaton and there was news of good form from the Ofili sisters competing in the U.S.
There will be T & F competition opportunity at LV next weekend. On Saturday events for the U/15's and U/17's , and on Sunday for U/20's and seniors.
Entries will be strictly limited so any Woodford athletes who wish to compete should do so direct via this link where full details and the entry link can be found.
Following a small number of test events that have been held recently, together with the feedback received and in discussion with England Athletics, the NAL have made the decision that the two remaining potential NAL competitions are to be cancelled for this season.
Of particular note from that feedback was the increased length of time it would currently take to conduct any event and that the current COVID restrictions would not allow large groups of teams to gather in an inter-Club competition format and successfully maintain the protocols required for all to remain safe.
However those dates still remain for potential competition and it is currently anticipated that some smaller or event specific T & F competitions will take place to provide competition opportunity for athletes during August and into September.
