Multi-Event Action At Monkton

Several of our Junior Harriers represented their schools recently when they took part in the Durham County Miniathlon Championships at Monkton Stadium. The Year 7 athletes each had to compete in a running, throwing and jumping event with points being awarded for their performance. The Miniathlon is a development event giving competitors a taster of multi-event competition in the hope that they will progress onto a Pentathlon with 5 disciplines the following year. A few of our Under 13’s, of course, have already experienced the excitement of Combined Events and that was evident from the final results……so well done to Ashton Harrison, Matthew Vest and Emily Hornsby of Longfield, Tori Buckley of St. Aiden’s, and Alex Boyer and Josh Scott from Carmel. They all performed to their usual high standards and you can check out the full Team and Individual results by clicking here
