Jude Sportshall athletics 2015


The 12th Jude Sportshall athletics competition held today at the National Sports Centre in memory of Judith Perriam was won by NAC, who retained the trophy. Manx Harriers were second and Hosts Western Athletic Club in third spot.

It was good to see so many of our young athletes enjoying this popular annual event where they competed in various events ranging from jumps, throws, relays, and obstacle races. With all the supporters this made for a fun packed and at times very noisy action packed afternoon.

Thank you to all the officials and helpers who managed to get the event set up and put away in record time and of course John Perriam for presenting the trophy to the winners. See you all again in 2016.
