JONAH MARKS – Joined Shaftesbury in July 2019, and has recently competed in several multisport events, including Duathlons, Triathlons and an Aquathon. In most of those events he was competing in the 16-20 age category, and as he is still only 15 (the age category starts in the year you turn that age), he did very well to hold his own against boys much bigger and more developed than him. As a result, he qualified to represent Great Britain in his age group at the European and World Sprint Duathlon Champs in 2021 and 2022 and the European and World Sprint Triathlon Champs in 2021 and 2022. Unfortunately, at present, it looks like the 2021 events may not go ahead, but with any luck he will be putting on a Great Britain tri-suit next year to compete for his country.
His father SIMON told me, he realises that SBH doesn’t specifically cover multisport, but just wanted to acknowledge that none of his achievements would have been possible without the excellent training he gets from the club. Thank you.
RETURN OF PARKRUN SET FOR 26 JUNE – The following article and was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by REBECCA BURNS.
Popular weekly series of 5km events is ready for comeback after vast majority of landowners give green light, when parkrun returns in the UK on 26 June, it will have been 469 days since the events were last held. It has been a long and frustrating wait and previous plans to get it re-started have struggled due to not enough landowners agreeing for it come back on their patch. However, now more than 500 of the 589 councils and landowners have given parkrun permission for it to resume on Saturday 26 June.
This follows a big campaign to put pressure on those landowners and councils who were initially reluctant to give parkrun the green light. The parkrun organisation itself wrote to BORIS JOHNSON recently calling for his Government to put pressure on councils, whereas a sizeable number of articles have appeared in the media supporting the case for its comeback. World Athletics president SEBASTIAN COE also added his voice to the support by saying parkrun “has become part of the fabric of everyday life”. TOM WILLIAMS, chief operating officer of parkrun, said: “There is now a strong consensus from landowners and public health officials, right across the country, that the return of parkrun – a free-to-access public health initiative – is vital as we look to improve our physical and mental health in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.
“We would like to place on record our thanks to the hundreds of landowners, directors of public health, the UK Government, parliamentarians from across the political spectrum, the Local Government Association, Sport England, mayors, press and media, public figures, parkrun volunteers, and the wider parkrun community for their incredible efforts during what has undoubtedly been a difficult time.”
If some but not all parkrun events resumed there was the fear that the active events would get flooded with too many people. Therefore parkrun decided to wait until 80-90% of its events had permission to resume. Even on Thursday (10 June), around 100,000 of the 160,000 parkrunners in the North East of England, for example, were registered to an event that did not have permission to return. But 24 hours later that number fell to 8000. Similarly, London now has just short of 40 approvals from 56 events, compared to just three in mid-May. WILLIAMS added: “Following a careful review of the information available, we now have a high degree of confidence that, when events do return, they will be safe, enjoyable, and accessible for all those who wish to take part in social, outdoor, physical activity, with their local community.
“For the remainder of events where we don’t yet have permission in place, we remain committed to doing everything we can to work with local event teams and landowners to see if we can secure the permission needed for their return.”

The re-start of parkrun is not absolutely 100% confirmed however as WILLIAMS explained: “On Monday, the Prime Minister will be confirming the details and timing of Step 4, and that his announcement may have a material impact on our ability to reopen on 26 June.
BIRMINGHAM 2022 UNVEILS TICKETS AND FULL EVENT SCHEDULE – The following article and photograph was published on the Athletics Weekly website recently. Photograph by LENSI PHOTOGRAPHY. From left to right HANNAH ENGLAND, MATTHEW KIDSON, IAN METCALFE, ORIE and KELLY PETERSEN.
The preparations for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham have stepped up a gear with organisers revealing that the refurbishment of Alexander Stadium is firmly on target, as well as unveiling the events schedule and releasing ticket information. Tickets for next year’s showpiece, which takes place from 28 July – 8 August, 2022, will start from just £8 for under-16s and £15 for adults, while there will also be £22 tickets for every session of the Games, including the opening and closing ceremonies and all medal sessions.
Athletics is one of 19 different sports on offer, with the track and field events starting on 2 August and taking up six out of the 11 days of competition. The athletics will take place at Alexander Stadium, which is currently undergoing a £72 million refurbishment. The venue is on budget and will be completed in Spring 2022. Its general capacity will be around 18,000 but extended to approximately 30,000 during the Games. The roof liner sheets on the new stand have been finished, pre-cast terracing (the concrete support for seating) and the metal decked concrete floors for the new West Stand have been completed. The feature steps for the northern plaza have also been installed. The project is being overseen by Birmingham City Council and its leader, Councillor IAN WARD, is confident that the Games can create an athletics legacy for the city, rather than a white elephant. “This stadium here in Birmingham will become the national stadium for athletics and become by far and away the best athletics venue in the whole of the country. Over 30,000 people will be packed in here for the Commonwealth Games and I expect to hear the roar of the crowd as the athletes come round the final bend,” WARD tells AW. “I expect to see major national and international events long into the future. We’re talking to a number of organisations about future use of the stadium for 365 days of the year and Birmingham University will be the anchor tenants to ensure that it does not become a white elephant and can become an asset to the city long into the future.”
This will be the third time that Great Britain has hosted a Commonwealth Games this century after Manchester in 2002 and Glasgow in 2014. HANNAH ENGLAND, 1500m world championship silver medallist and three-time UK champion, competed in Glasgow and has strong links to Birmingham, given she studied at university in the city. “We’ve been so lucky to have so many home athletics competitions in Britain and I can see Birmingham just building on that. We’re so lucky with that tradition and we’ve learnt from those events which means we can put on an even better championships,” she says. “I think the Alexander Stadium has a strong athletics tradition but I think everyone knew it needed updating and it’s going to be similar to the ones you get in Europe where the crowds are much closer around the bends. That atmosphere is what we’re going to get from Birmingham 2022 and I think events would be amazing alongside the community element of having English Schools and of course Birchfield Harriers are based here. “I wish this was here five years ago so I could compete but I’m based at the University of Birmingham and I’m so keen to see their journeys.”
The start of the Commonwealth Games takes place just four days after the end of the World Championships in Oregon on 24 July, in what is set to be a blockbuster six weeks of athletics action given that the European Championships in Munich then start on 16 August. MATT KIDSON, Director of Sport for Birmingham 2022, is excited by the prospect of welcoming medallists to Birmingham so soon after Oregon. “My first thought walking into the stadium is it’s going to be a world-class venue for the Commonwealth Games six days of athletics coming back from the world champs in the US. The atmosphere that the stadium will generate will be fantastic. We’ll have temporary stands in as well to take the capacity up to 30,000 and I think we’ll get a similar noise to what we had at London 2012,” he tells AW. “I think this is going to be a very special place for athletics to take place. We’ve got the home of UK Athletics here in Birmingham and there’s an affinity for the sport in the West Midlands. The athletes know this place and they are going to feel at home.”

JONATHAN KILSBY’S MEMORIAL DAY – JONATHAN loved Trent Park; as children, we lived only a few hundred yards from its entrance and, throughout his life, it was a one of his favourite training areas. To commemorate JONATHAN’S life, we are going to have a walk-in Trent Park on Saturday 31st July. All of JONATHAN’S friends, family and colleagues are invited to join us. It will be a very informal event, with a walk of about an hour to one of JONATHAN’S most loved areas of the park, where we will stop and have our own thoughts about his kind, good humoured and generous life.
We will meet at midday at the carpark by the Trent Park Café, near the Cockfosters entrance to the park. (Post code: EN4 0JY). https://goo.gl/maps/GoZe6V4hvt18MpZKA/a>
If you are a runner then, on the same morning, Barnet and District Athletic Club will be completing their training session in JONATHAN’S memory. They will be meeting at 9:00 at the same location and training for around 90 minutes. Runners from all JONATHAN’S former running clubs and of all abilities are welcome.
There is no need, at this point, to let us know if you intend coming along. We appreciate that planning anything at the moment has its challenges, particularly two months in advance. We will email again, two weeks before the 31st July, with any further details and updates to the day.

SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 – SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION – Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.
On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.
