Hurdles Squad
Hurdles Squad

Crawley AC staged their first ever Hurdlefest on a cold October evening. The very low key event was held late during a Club training evening,  with races over 60m and 150m perfectly synchronised between the middle distance group training reps.

Congratulations to Paul McKeown for the great work in getting the group race ready on a cold late October evening, ably assisted by Matt Overall.

Paul would like to say:

Thank you to Fiona, Paula and Terry for the time keeping and track judging - I’m hoping we’ve created some 150m hurdle world records!

Thank you to Jim for his forever epic welding of his pistol (easy now, you lot!)!

Big thank you to everyone who stayed after training to watch!

A special mention must go to Matt who is doing such an incredible job with the younger group. It is evident when you have a competitive bunch of smiling faces on the start line that they have a coach looking after them in truly holistic fashion. The next generation are certainly in great hands.

If I’ve forgotten anyone, my apologies and please can someone mention them on this thread.

Overall, I saw last night as yet another testament to the passion that the mighty Crawley AC has for the welfare and development of their athletes - can’t wait until the next one!
