NDAC Open Track Meet – Club Championship round 4
Championship event No.4 was a significant departure from the usual, taking place at the Bangor Sportsplex in an event hosted by North Down AC and including the use of starting blocks! The challenge: compete in two races, one 300m, one 600m, with times for each race added and ranked.
Alan, as Sprint Coach, was keen to ensure that no-one went into the event cold. Preparation for the event had included training and practice in use of the blocks, and a pre-race brief had been arranged.
While a good number of our club are in training for marathons and unlikely to find this event a good fit with their objectives, a good number of athletes were game and available for the challenge on a bright, dry and mild evening.
