January has been another busy month for our athletes with outstanding performances in a number of events. We are in the business end of the cross country season and our Track & Field Athletes have been keeping sharp with indoor competitions. The club would like to recognise these performances by introducing an Athlete of the Month Competition. We will have an extra category for the Young Athlete of the Month which is for the Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 age groups.    

So we need your nominations for who you think deserves our first awards. Please send them to me on  THIS e-mail. Feel free to nominate any athlete you think deserves the award. It could be somebody who has won one of the many championship medals claimed by Leeds City athlete in the month. Equally it could be somebody who has set a PB in a heat or turned in a gutsy, battling performance down the field in a race.

So please send you nominations with the name of the athletes and the reason for the nomination in about 100 words. Closing date for nominations is Sunday 12th February.

The winners of this first awards will be decided by a selection of our committee members but if you would like to help decide the winner of future competitions please get in touch.
