• NI & Ulster Senior & U18-U20 Track & Field Championships - Sat 10th June 2017

    A number of Willowfield athletes were competing at the first day of the NI & Ulster Track and Field Championships. They included some junior age groups running the 1500m distance, these races being run off in the morning session of the senior meeting. The juniors age groups have a full day next Saturday, 17th June.

    Everyone performed well and a few notable ‘pbs’ were run. Mabelle was first Willowfield athlete out and finished an excellent 5th place. She will be eligible for this age group again next year. Continuing the fine start Dylan took the silver medal in an exciting race. He was just pipped for the gold after a shoulder to should sprint with Joseph Haynes of Armagh AC.

    Hannah lowered her 1500m time and will be pleased with her 6th place. Likewise Matthew who took a chunk off this ‘pb’ crossing the line in 5th. Nathan followed in 7th place and will be happy for the good workout before his key 800m event next Saturday.

    In the Senior 400m heats Ryan Henry continued his return to fitness and ran 53.59. Hopefully he will soon get back to his 51 and under condition.

    In the afternoon session Marc Jeffrey was rewarded for his determination to compete when he ran home 5th in the 3000m steeplechase. Marc was second U19 and secured a silver medal.

  • Update - Some Recent Results

    Lough Neagh Rescue 5 Miler – 20th May 2017

    There was success for Amy Bulman and Thomas Carson at the Lough Neagh event. Thomas (28.57) finished a close second to Project Africa athlete Dan Tanui whilst Amy (30.36) coming home 9th overall won the ladies event.

    North Down AC Open Track Meeting - 16th May 2017

    Ryan Henry is working back to fitness and has had a couple of outings on the track this year. At the recent North Down meeting he took in the 100m (2nd 12.03) and 400m (3rd 54.01). Ryan is a little way from his best after a series of injuries but is working hard and will no doubt significantly lower his times especially in his favourite 400m event.
