Race Date Wednesday 23 May 2018
This was the first of three open meetings hosted by City of Sheffield & Dearne A.C. at Woodbourn Road over the summer. With a range of track and field events a handful of Striders stuck their head over the parapet and had a go with some entering an unfamiliar environment with numbers front and back, marksmen, a starter dressed in red replete with two guns, electric timing and a strict protocol to be adhered to. The announcer started to berate one of our athletes before she realised he was still running the 3000m and not warming up on the track.
A warm sunny evening although sometimes breezy as evidenced by the wind speeds on the sprints.

Some of the fields were not that large which is a shame considering the time and effort it takes to put on events like this, not run for profit like many road races but purely for the benefits of the athletes. There are two more events to come, details of which can be found here Run Jump Throw 2018.
