North East Grand Prix-Jarrow
Last Wednesday night was the first midweek athletics grand prix at Monkton Stadium, Jarrow.
Junior and Senior athletes compete in a range of events over the summer months.
Athletes in the track events are graded by personal best times so race heats can be fairly contested. In the field events age categories are grouped to enable the competitions to be run in a shorter evening fixture.
Eight Alnwick Juniors took part on this occasion and there was fierce competition in the sprinting, jumping and throwing.
Ollie Telfer had an excellent race in the 1500m posting a personal best time
and club record of 4min 23.4s.
There are five fixtures still to be contested and the athletes are looking forward to even greater success.
