Senior Track and Field – Vets League
The club currently competes in The Midlands Veteran’s Track and Field League. This is a competition whose genesis goes back some 40 years, to a fixture between Worcester and Stourport Athletics Clubs.
We as a club are relative newcomers to the league, having only joined in 2013. However, in this short period of time we have established ourselves as one of the leading clubs in the Greater Midland Area.
In 2018 the club finished 2nd in the Southern Division and in the final fixture of the year, the Cup Final, with all 23 clubs competing, we finished in 4th place, missing out on 3rd place by just 1 point.
In athletics you can compete as a veteran at ages 35 and over. The events consist of running, walking, throwing and jumping, organised in age groups of ages 35+, 40+, 50+, 60+ and 70+, for both male and female athletes.
Vets T&F is a great opportunity to involve yourself in disciplines you may not have competed in for many years. If you are interested, you are strongly advised to contact the Vet’s team coach, Tony Humphries TrackandFieldSenior@stratfordac.co.uk, to discuss the events and training options open to you, or to pop along to Stratford School Track on a Monday evening.
The Vet’s Track & Field athletes meet on Monday evenings at 6.00 to 8.00pm at Stratford School Track, Alcester Road.
