Club Records
The colts records that are relevant to Quadkids are listed here: Colts Records relevant to QK

Quadkids Event one – 7 May 2017
60 athletes took part in 7th May event. Good fun had by all and some new faces on show, which is always good to see! Thanks to all of the parents/coaches/officials and junior helpers who assisted in making the event run pretty smoothly given it was the first event of the year.

Three records broken or equaled in the under 9 category. Given that this is the only the first event of the season shows the hard work over the winter is already paying off. Results here:Quadkids results 7 May 2017

Quadkids Event two – 4 June 2017

Great second event attended by over 100 children.
Huge thank you to all the additional coaches, juniors and parent helpers who made the whole thing run pretty smoothly I think.

Three more records broken in the u9 ranks. Bertie Beddow extends his own long jump record out to 1.94m. Ed Robinson smashes under 9 boys’ howler record by over two meters, setting new mark of 35.94m. Tillie H-W breaks the overall combined score record by one point and sets new a new total of 186 points. Well done to all taking part. Results are here: Quadkids results 4 June 2017

Quadkids Event three – 9 July 2017
Main highlights again come from the under 9 boys. Ed and Bertie driving each other on to ever increasing scores. Bertie equals his own long jump record and Ed equals the overall point record. Suspect by end of the season all records for this age group will be owned between them.

A quick check through the results shows that vast majority of the athletes taking part on Sunday set new personal bests in terms of overall points scores. Well done to all! Results are here:
Quadkids results 9 July 2017

Quadkids Event four- 9 July 2017

Weather meant that most athletes were down by about 10-15 points on their PB’S, so anyone who did set a good score has done really, really well. Well done to Ed Robinson who takes almost 2 meters off his own u9 howler record.
Quadkids results 30 July 2017

Quadkids Event five – 13 August 2017
Well done to all of those that turned up. Warm weather meant everyone got back on track in terms of individual scores, with some large PB’s being set.
Remember, two more events to go and top four individual scores to count towards end of season awards.
Quadkids results 13 August 2017

Quadkids Event six – held as part of the Intertrust Games meeting – 2 September 2017
Quadkids results 2 September 2017

Quadkids Event seven
Almost 70 athletes took part in the last meeting for this Summer. Well done to all of those athletes and the others that have taken part over the summer. Results are here: Quadkids results 10 September 2017

Huge thank you to all of the junior and parent helpers who has assisted in making these series of events run, I think, so smoothly. Prize giving will be held as part of the clubs awards night in January.

Cross country fixtures will be published in due course. Those races will also be open to all.

Intertrust Easter Festival 2017

Race one – Footes Lane
77 athletes took part in the first race of the Intertrust Easter Running Festival. Results here: Good Friday 2017

Thanks to the nine juniors who helped marshal the course as well as control the finish line. We’ll name check them following the last race but, as always, their help was invaluable!

Race two – Lucksall Garage
94 runners today. Great racing and some good “battles” right throughout the fields in the various races. Results here: Easter Saturday 2017

Race three – Easter relays
Well done to all those that took part today. Usual chaos endued during the u7 relay race but I guess that is now becoming part of the Easter tradition for these events! Results here: Colts Relays

Race four – Bordeaux Headland
80 athletes raced today over what was a new course for the Easter festival. Deemed to work really well so will look to keep in for next year. Results are here:  Easter MONDAY 2017

Huge thank you to all of the athletes for taking part in what was I think another fantastic series of races and the first under the sponsorship of Intertrust. Everyone ran to their best, had fun and were all encouraged by the many parents dotted around the various courses. Also a big thank you to those parents who helped take down the courses after each event. Well done all!!

Thanks to the finish line team of Tracey Marley, Abi Galpin, Sara Marley, Kelsi Adamson and Linda Moroney – feedback from them was that it helped massively that for every race every athlete (apart from one on final day!) remembered to bring their number.

Steven Marley for helping me set up the three individual courses (including being on site at 7am this morning!), as all as packing all of the goodie bags prior to handing them out today. Josh Powell for helping out wherever he could including acting as runner for the younger ones.

And lastly to the members of my sprints/hurdles group who turned up and helped marshal the races. Rhiannon, Sorcha, Ollie, Mia (who managed three races) and in particular both Meg and Macy who made it to all four of the races!

Intertrust Quadkids 2016

2016 QuadKids summer series: QuadKids 2016 entry form

17 April 2016 Results: QK taster event 
Well done to those athletes and officials who braved a pretty miserable Sunday morning when taking part in the first our Summer Quadkids events. I think the weather certainly played a part in some of the scoring, in particular the jumps and throws elements. Fingers crossed for better weather at our next event!

For those who have pre-entered then individually numbered tech t-shirts have been ordered and should be here in time for the next event.

If you have not pre-entered the upcoming events and wish to do so please complete the entry form and return it asap. T-shirts will then be ordered and will be passed out as and when they arrive.

8 May 2016 Results: QK results 8 May 2016
Well done to all 93 (?) athletes who took part. A really big thank you to all of those parents/coaches/junior helpers who helped us rattle through the events.
I am aware the event ran over the allotted two hours so will be making some changed to ensure we try to stop that happening in the future.
Any queries over the results etc. then please just e-mail me.
5 May 2016 Results: 5 June Results
Over 90 athletes again took part in this event. Weather was great and some real progression show by loads of athletes on the day. Under 11 girls / Under 9 girls in particular shaping up to be quite a competitive series!

3 July 2016 Results: 3 July Results
Well done to all those athletes who took part in this latest event. Conditions far from ideal but still some pretty impressive displays from a number of athletes.
Any amendment please e-mail me.

16 July 2016 Results: July 16th Intertrust Games
Well done to those that took part in the Intertrust Games. As predicted the fantastic weather led to a lot of exceptional performances – although judging by some of the times the heat may have finally taken it’s toll in the endurance races held as the last of the four events.

On a day when the adult javelin throwers stole the show in the main event it was appropriate that Aideen Le Prevost extended her u11 club howler record and in doing so became the first girl to throw over 30 meters.

7 August 2016 Results: 7 August Results 
Another good turn out for an event that was, judging by majority of the individual scores, affected by the gloomy and windy conditions. Highlight of the meeting was Bertie Beddow breaking the boys under nine standing long jump record with a leap of 1.83m. This beat the mark of 1.79m set less than a month ago by Charlie Hynes.

11 September 2016 Results: 11 September-results
Last event of the year brought the best weather we have had for a QK event all summer. Athletes certainly responded both in numbers (83) that turned out and in terms of the HUGE number of personal best scores achieved by athletes.

As always if anyone missed off results just e-mail athletes name to mar.ley@virgin.net

Highlights were found throughout the age groups. Closest battle of the season was eventually won, just, by Bertie Beddow in beating Ed Robinson into second place for the overall u9 boy’s title. Performance of the day belonged to one of our younger athletes. Alexander Mills became the first u7 boy to amass a score of more than 200 points & in process threw the mini howler out to a distance just short of 30m.

Well done to all of those that took part over the course of the season. A massive thank you to all of the parents, coaches and junior helpers who assisted with the QK events over the summer. The QK events are now so big that without their help these events simply could not happen.

Trophies are in the process of being ordered and there will an awards event in due course.

Intertrust Quadkids 2015

Sunday 27th September
Great final days competion. 68 athletes took part and I make it easily over two thirds posted new PB’s. Highlights include gold standard performances from Vicky Hancock & Eve Walley. Kate Bain breaks u11 600m record.

Rupert Wilson and (we think) Isabelle Lowe both break u9 400m records.

Only 4 points seperate the top three u7 girls.. order will be revealed at the prize-giving event to be held shortly.

Sunday 30th August
Another great days competition. Thanks to all of the athletes who took part and to the parents/juniors who helped the event to run so well. As is becoming normal there were a load of new PB’s set. Think it worth mentioning the two Goubert lads who both set Uu11 PB’s with scores in excess of 250 points – well done and those sorts of scores will be very welcome in the forthcoming Inter-Insular!

Sunday 7th June
About 115 athletes took part in QK this Sunday and thanks to all of the assistance we received we were done just short of 2 hours…. brilliant.

Performance of the helpers was more than matched by the athletic performances on the track itself. Great to see everyone improving month on month. Keep up your good work!! Revised results here: QUAD KIDS 7th June 2015 

In order to ensure the event runs smoothly we will need the same level of amazing assistance we had from a number of parents at the last meeting. I’ll try to organise the various field teams before the day itself this time!! 

Sunday 26th April
– Results: Intertrust Quadkids 26 April 2015
