Thanet Roadrunners Juniors to enter Kent Young Athletes League

Thanet Roadrunners AC is entering the Kent Young Athletes League (KYAL) in 2015.  This will see juniors from the club compete in the full range of Track & Field disciplines.  We will be fielding Boys’ and Girls’ teams in both age categories:
 
U13 (for juniors who will be aged 11 or 12 on 31st August 2015) – Current Y6 and Y7
 
U15 (for juniors who will be aged 13 or 14 on 31st August 2015) – Current Y8 and Y9
 
This is seen as a logical progression following the huge growth of the junior section over the past couple of years.  With large club entries for both the Kent U13 Championships and the Kent Track Relays in the autumn, it was significant that TRAC colours were worn not just in the middle-distance races, but in sprints and jumps events too.
 
I shall be producing a detailed information sheet early in the New Year for those juniors in the appropriate age categories.
 
Two of them, Beth Williams and Cameron Macrae were selected to run for Kent at the SEAA Inter-Counties Cross Country on Saturday 13th December 2014 at Horspath, Oxford.  Beth came 19th of 92 in the U13 Girls’ race and Cameron was the 35th finisher of 87 boys in the same age group.
 
Their selection for the county rounded off a highly successful calendar year for the Juniors – one that has seen the club through to the final three in the ‘Young Team of the Year’ category of the Kent Regional News & Media Sports Awards.  Ben Pond, who is now at university but still maintains close contact with the club, has also made the final three in the ‘Kent Sports Star’ category. The eventual winners will be announced at an awards dinner on Thursday 15th January at Eastwell Manor, Ashford.
