Sparkhill Harrier - National Champion and World Record Holder Print

Owing to a persistent calf injury Grahame Cooper has not been able to run regularly over recent months but fortunately has been able to continue training and competing in his other sport of indoor rowing where he competes at the highest level.  During these events he competes in his Sparkhill colours.

On 12 July 2015 Grahame participated in the Concept 2 Online Challenge when he rowed in the Lighweight Men 80+ category, achieving a distance of 266 metres in one minute.

On 29 January this year Grahame received confirmation from the Concept 2 HQ in the USA that this performance was ratified as a British and World Record.

On 31 January 2016 Grahame competed in the English Rowing Championship at the Manchester Velodrome winning the Gold Medal in the 2000 metres Lightweight Men 80+ category with a time of 8 mins 27.3 secs.

On 13 March 2016 Grahame competed in the World Sprint Challenge (online) in the 1000 metres Lightweight Men 80+ category when he won the Silver Medal with a time of 4 mins 11.6 secs.

As a result of these impressive performances Grahame has been invited to join a team that will be seeking to set a new World Record for rowing 100,000 metres in Newquay on 24 September 2016.

Congratulations to Grahame on these world class performances.

At the Molly Barnett U20 and Senior 10km racewalking meeting, incorporating the England Athletics Senior 10km Championships, held at Coventry on 6th March 2016, Hilary finished in 32nd place overall, was the 12th woman, and 7th in the national EA Champs.

Congratulations to our junior Sparkhill Harrier Zac Minchin who has been selected to run for Warwickshire in the annual Inter-Counties Cross Country Championship race to be held this Saturday 12th March at Cofton Park.
Zak's selection is the reward for the hard work he has put in throughout the season, training regularly and culminating in an excellent run in the County X/C Championship last month where he finished fourth.
Good luck on Saturday Zak!
Help needed for CAU Inter Counties XC, Cofton Park, Sat 12th March 2016 Print

From organisers of the Inter counties XC at Cofton Park >>

To All Club contacts,

I have been asked by the CAU Inter Counties xc to assist them in finding some programme sellers for the event on Saturday 12th March 2016. We need Four programme sellers to achieve coverage of the site. There is a payment of £100 offered to the club who could provide the required number of people. This payment could be split if two clubs were to provide a couple each.

Also as Clerk of the course I’m still looking for more help to set up and marshal the course on the Saturday, a packed lunch, free tea/coffee and possibly a bottle of wine for those offering to marshal from 10am to 4pm or if you could also assist in the course setup from 7.30am before your marshal duties there is also a Breakfast bap on offer. No experience is needed if you have never helped at an event before, you will be instructed in the role and will be working with others who have experience of event marshalling.

Free parking is available for all those offering help.

Please ask around your clubs to see if we can fill the required places.
