GEORGE HARRISON MBE – THE STORY SO FAR – I was given this book for Christmas and I recommend it to all our members. The book is in 2 parts. The first part is the history of George from his early days as a talented runner and how he coped with the work/running balance through to his coaching exploits at St Albans School and the many SBH members he turned into champions. In the second half he provides the reader with many of his coaching secrets with detailed sessions which are a must for any aspiring endurance coach. We are very lucky to have had George associated with this Club, not only  as its leading and most successful endurance coach over the last 40 years but also as a young athlete team manager on both Track and Field and Cross Country / Road. George is also a former President of the Club. The book is available on Amazon at £2.75. Buy it NOW.

ENGLAND ATHLETICS U20 AND SENIOR INDOOR COMBINED EVENTS CHAMPIONSHIPS – Congratulation to DYLAN CARLSSON-SMITH whose improvement over the past year has been outstanding.  At Sheffield last week-end competing in the U20 Men’s Heptathlon DYLAN finished just outside the medals in 4th place, recording an awesome personal best of 4808 points, a New Club U20 Record, adding 239 points to his previous total set last year.
