Funeral of John Sullivan

To those who knew the wonderful coach John Sullivan. We have been told that John has sadly passed away. The funeral service will be held on Wednesday 15th February at 11am at St Mary and St Michael Catholic Church, 2 Lukin Street, Commercial Road, London E1 0AA.

John’s international reputation was based on his elite middle distance squad, whose depth was unequalled during the ‘golden age’ of middle distance running in the UK in the 1980s and attracted athletes from several countries around Europe to train with him in London. However he also gained significant success coaching hurdlers and his attention from the mid-1990s became increasingly focused on shorter distances, hence he worked with internationals at all men's track disciplines. 

Met League 5: Seniors

Bleak, muddy and brooding it might well have been. Freezing it certainly was. It was also buzzing, not least in anticipation of the England Athletics mystery gift for every Senior finisher, as this 50th season final fixture got underway.

Despite the minor earthworks going on around us, That Hill certainly hadn’t got any smaller since last time, as around 170 women lined up, stepped back, and set off for its greasy north face. We saved our best showing for last as seven Woodettes started the race: 3.7 miles in 2 identical laps - flat but for one steep, stepped climb up to The Palace and a swooshing downhill. Made nice and slippery after a wettish few weeks.

U11 Girls & U11 Boys are Met Champs

Alexandra Palace on Saturday provided the usual horrible weather we have come to expect - freezing cold, rain, sleet and even a bit of snow. This didn’t put our Young Athletes off one little bit and their performances did the club proud.
