CC6 results from Kings Inclosure

The Winchester & District men proved themselves last Sunday at the CC6 race in Kings Inclosure Stoney Cross by winning the team event in difflicult conditions.  Ian Debnam and James Heneghan came third and fourth respectively, a debut run for James too, while Julian Mann and John Gore ensured our win with sixth and sixteenth positions cementing our team win. This puts the men's team in second postion overall so far, and all to play for!

Unfortunately the ladies turn out was limited to Jane Gandee who came in a creditable fifth.  Hopefully more runners can attend the next race on the 14th December at Janesmoor Pond for the Santa Special to return our ladies to winning ways.

Sportshall athletes needed

Sportshall started on Tuesday 2nd September at Kings School Romsey Road. We still need more athletes in the under 11 boys and girls and under 13 girls and especially under 13 boys. Sportshall encompasses running throwing jumping and agility aspects of athletics and is an excellent opportunity to obtain new skills. We compete in the Hampshire Sportshall league with the chance, if selected to represent Hampshire at regional and possibly national level. If you think you would like to take part at Sportshall please contact myself Steve Torrance Jane Gandee, Pete Spelman or through your coach.
