Day Trip to Birmingham

Harling AC enjoyed a coach trip to the Venice of England on Saturday, 25 February, to watch the Athletics World Indoor Tour Final at Utilitarian Arena, Birmingham.

A big group of junior and senior athletes and families enjoyed an afternoon of quick fire indoor athletics action. With a variety of races around the 200m track and the 60m inner straight, mixed with pole vault, high jump and long jump there was barely time to take breath between the action. We were honoured to witness three British National Records, set by Dina Asher-Smith (60m), Keely Hodgkinson (800m), and Neil Gourley (1500m).

It was great to see Kevin Santos (in lane 5, picture below) with a great run in the 60m Para Men race, after starting his Athletics journey with Harling AC back in 2017.

There was much talk on the coach amongst the enthusiastic voyagers as to where our next trip should be...
