Wells City Harriers training sessions for the New Year will resume this coming week – Tuesday 4th for older juniors age 14 upwards and seniors; and next Monday 10th January for younger juniors age 8 and upwards to age 15. The Session plans for Tuesday are below.

 

 

At the end of 2021, however, we saw a good turn-out at the final track session where a team parlauf was organised. The winning trio were u17s Bradley Glover and Jack Harvey teamed up with V50 Stephen Nicholls, but they were pushed all the way by their fellow Harriers.

Over the Xmas break, Jon James also posted a great performance (above) when winning his age category and finishing top 10 at the Clevedon Boxing Day race. Read on for all the details…

The sessions for 2021 at the Millfield track were rounded off for the year with a competitive, but fun, parlauf event with ten teams of three athletes running a continuous 200m relay for 30 minutes.



Teams were balanced out on a handicap basis with slower runners teamed up with faster ones. There was great effort shown with the relay baton consisting of a Christmas Cracker. The youngest Harrier taking part was age 12 and the oldest age 78.
