Club Championship Results

We’ve finally managed to complete the results for this year’s Club Championships.  Congratulations to everyone who took part on the day and especially our medal winners.  Every point was well earned.  Ninety athletes took part in what was a very competitive event.

Just to remind everyone, the counting scores were your best track event, your best throws event and your long jump.  The exception was the Race Runners whose best two track events were added to their club throw.  The thistle tables were used to convert each performance into a numeric score.

The first three in each age group will receive their medals at this year’s Awards night on Wednesday the 28th of November.
