This weekend saw the third NECAA track and field event take place at Morpeth, with many NEMAA members taking part in the various disciplines, including 100m, 800m, discus, shot, javelin, and long jump. However, the event also incorporated the NEMAA 3k Championships and this event was well attended (given the current Covid restrictions!). The weather for late September was relatively kind to us, and the athletes seemed to enjoy what was for some their first taste of proper competition this season. Two 3k Championship records were also broken - Roselle Oberholzer broke her own record from last year by almost 2 seconds, whilst David Nicholson smashed Mark McNally's 8 year record by over 20 seconds. Great times were also recorded by non-NEMAA members Claire McManus and David Oxland - congratulations to everyone who competed!
