Great Western Runners


Thank you so much for the grant awarded by the A.D.M.F trust. I was able to purchase a pair of trainers with half the money and I used the rest on travel and competition expenses as well as a pair of running shorts!


I have had a brilliant first season running as a under 20 400M hurdler. I have won some big competitions both for Yate and for College. I have gained the Yate record for 400 Hurdling along with Avon and South west Champion.  I gained a place in the Avon team for the English Schools Championships, although a very hot day proved too much for me and I under performed, but determined to be selected and run better next year!


My biggest achievement of the year came at the Midland Championships where I took Gold and was then selected to run for England U .20 at Cardiff. This was an amazing experience and has made me more determined to be re-selected I loved wearing the red and white vest of my Country.


Thank you once more for the support, it really did make a difference.
