While the senior runners were celebrating Valley Striders 37th birthday with the Summer Handicap, the juniors were having their own competitions at Long Jump and 800 Metres.
We finished the evening with what seems to be the norm for the professional meetings – the 4 by 100 metres relay. All 9 teams managed to get the baton round without dropping it.
Two weeks ago we’d timed some 100 Metres races, so this completed the set of events that most juniors would experience if they went to a track and field meeting – Sprint, Middle Distance and Long Jump.

NB I couldn’t find a picture of the GSAL track but did find one of high jumping at the London Stadium at the Olympics, hope you think this is suitable!
