Pictured here are, Kate Southwell from Maryport and Sam Wright from Cockermouth who were Ellenborough Athletics Club representatives for Cumbria in the recent Inter County match at Sportcity, Manchester.
Sam’s dad reports that the Manchester event is a great one to take part in if given the chance. It is very well organised with the emphasis on having fun that is the most important request from the organiser. The children were all made welcome and there were five counties taking part on the day. This was all under the excellent leadership of team manager, Lisa from Kendal who was very encouraging giving everyone their chance to do their very best. The organisers of the athletics stadium set all the courses out along with older athletes who demonstrated each race so the younger athletes could see exactly what they had to do and where to stand. The parents especially liked how they had a little race in the middle of the event where the children taking part in the event invited their younger siblings to race together which kept everyone involved. It was amazing to take part in the event in such a fantastic athletics venue where the Commonwealth games had been held. The facilities were brilliant. A great day was had by all!
