Presentation Evening

This year’s presentation evening will be held at The Venue, Park Hall on Friday 6th November starting at 7pm. Tickets cost £5 per person to include sausage and chips, quiz and disco.

All children who have trained or competed with the club this summer will receive a certificate of achievement based on the UK Athletics track and field standards and there will be a range of trophies and shields awarded.

Tickets will be available to buy at training sessions from Saturday 24th October. Please contact Tracy if you would like to reserve tickets. It is a great night of pride, fun and laughter so please come and support the children in celebrating their achievements.

Would athletes who won cross country or memorial trophies last year please return them to me as soon as possible so that I can have them engraved for this year’s recipients.



A reminder that all athletes must pay an affiliation fee, as well as their membership fee, when registering with the club. The only exceptions are U11’s who affiliate to England Athletics.



There will be no training at the Marches School next Thursday 28th October due to the half term holidays. Saturday morning training at Gatacre Playing Fields will continue as usual during the holidays.


Parking at the Marches School

A polite reminder from the school that parents should park in the car park at the front of the school and walk up to the Sportshall. AFTER HALF TERM NO ATHLETES UNDER 16 WILL BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE SPORTSHALL UNACCOMPANIED AS THE EVENINGS WILL BE DARKER. Parents will need to come into the Sportshall to collect their children.


New club kit

We are pleased to announce a new supplier for all club kit, except competition vests.

Macron will set up a webpage for parents/athletes to order and pay for their kit directly. We hope to have a range of hoodies, t-shirts, track bottoms, leggings, shorts, beanie hats, rain jackets and gilets all sporting the club logo and name. Ideal for Christmas presents! Orders available soon.

help needed!!!

Written by

Helpers needed to promote the club at the Oswestry Community Games in Cae Glas Park on Sunday 21st September. We need volunteers to talk to prospective junior athletes about Oswestry Olympians and how much you/your children enjoy it!
Only 1 hour of your time is required between 12-4pm. Please let me know if you are available to help.

This date clashes with the cross country league meeting at Oswestry School so families involved in XC are off the hook (although we will also need volunteers to serve refreshments and act as marshalls)!!!
