Juniors Excel in Club Competition
Updated: Jun 4
The second match in the Wessex Young Athletes Track & Field League programme was a home fixture for CoSARC on a mild Spring day. For many of the youngsters this was their first experience of competition. They were hugely enthusiastic and keen to participate in a range of disciplines in field and track events. The Quad kids did 75m, 600m, Vortex and Long Jump. They all did tremendously well for both themselves and their team mates, and were a credit to CoSARC and Salisbury.

The weather was pretty perfect for the Edinburgh Marathon, sunny and cloudy but no wind. The fast flat route was ideal for PBs, and followed a coastal route from Edinburgh city centre, finishing in Musselburgh. There was great local support in Musselburgh for the final run in. All in all it was a really well organised event. Poppy Longdon-Down did very well when she finished in 3:07:38, and knocked 5 minutes off her previous PB.
