Sparkhill Harriers Satellite Club starts Thursday 29 January 2015 Print
The Sparkhill Harriers Satellite Club will be starting up next Thursday 29th January 2015 based at Foxhollies Leisure Centre and track.  It will run from 6pm to 7pm and has been set up with the support of England Athletics and Sport Birmingham. 
The satellite club is intended to complement what we already do with the club both in the junior and the senior sections.  We hope it will eventually lead to increased membership of our club as satellite club runners develop and wish to take their running to the next stage. 
The aim of our satellite club is to get young people, aged 11 to 25 years - into running (or to return to running).
The training will be delivered by Charles Fentiman, Mick Edwards, John Goulding and Rob Mills, all of whom have undertaken the Leadership in Running Fitness qualification delivered by England Athletics.  If you have any queries about the satellite club please speak to one of them.
The information below is extracted from the Sport England website.

UPDATE: Winners of the club places were Paul Webster and Brian May.

The club has 2 guaranteed places for the 2015 Virgin London Marathon. These will be drawn at random at the Christmas handicap . If any members are interested then please let us know ASAP (before the handicap anyway). Entries need to be submitted in early January at the latest.  These are available equally to all fully paid up senior members.

If interested please inform Rob Mills or any of the committee.

Near miss for Sparkhill Harriers Triathlon Team Print
On the evening of Friday 14 November four Sparkhill Harriers competed in the Foxhollies Charity Triathlon Challenge in support of Children in Need. 
Vicki Bone, Patrick Finnegan, Bernie Waring and Rob Mills split the various activities between them (1500m swim, 40k bike ride and 10k run) to finish a creditable 4th out of eleven teams competing.  Although we narrowly missed the podium this time, we will be back stronger, fitter and hungrier next year!
However, there was some glory for the Harriers as Julie Brookes and her three friends ("Team B") came first, destroying all those around them with a powerhouse performance from her team, including our former Harrier Steve Brown.
It was a fantastic event and extremely well-organised by the Foxhollies staff and at the presentation afterwards there was some very nice food,  so next year we hope to be getting more Sparkhill teams out.
The Sparkhill team raised £140 and the event overall raised a total of £1,715 for Children in Need.
Overall it was a great evening so make sure you get involved next time!!!
