2007 Christmas Heptathlon

Indoor Sportshall Agility Challenge

This was held at the Bolton Arena on Monday 3rd December 2007 and we had an incredible 65 Competitors from our own club competing! What a fantastic night, packed with fun for all those that took part. All the young athletes had to run, jump and throw in 7 different events in less than 2 hours.

This was predominantly a competition for our Under 12 years of age. Athletes were put into 7 different teams, all of which were Captained by the older Athletes i.e. from Under 13’s, & 15’s.

The winners were the “Cupid Team”, captained by Sam Mercer, with the rest of the team being, Noah Saunders, Alex Critchley, Amelia Atherton, Sally Burton, Holly Clarke, Jake Haslam, Jane Moorhouse and Penny.

It was also a fund raising opportunity and to date we estimate we may collect in the region of £400 towards a local charity Nr Chorley, “Rainbow House”.

A huge thank you for all the Parents, who helped officiating on the night. We could not have pulled off this type of event without that kind of support.

We had special guests on the night from Wigan Harriers, Don Moss and Sharon Walls (GB Athlete – presented the prizes). Sarah Friday from England Athletics also made a visit.

Finally, a big thank you to the Rotary Club of Horwich for supporting this year’s event. Rotarian Billy Bromilow commented on what a great event this was and it’s a credit to the Community of Horwich and Districts!

All our Athletes had a great night and they all competed with good spirit, great behaviour and gave their best for each event. Congratulations to everyone, they may their Coaches very proud!
