Pip Raises the Bar in Barcelona!

The 6th-12th August saw Sant Cugat, Spain, hosting the Cerebral Palsy World Games and presenting a National representation opportunity for North Somerset Athletic Club’s Pip Mannings. This unique multi-sport competition has been taking place since 1989, and this year saw 800 competitors from 24 countries come together to compete on the outskirts of Barcelona!
Pip, born very prematurely in 1993, has Cerebral Palsy and a Learning Disability, but after spectating the Paralympics in London 2012, she was inspired to try Athletics and joined North Somerset Athletic Club. Under the watchful eye of Club Head Coach Chris Millard, she has demonstrated impressive progression to take her place in England’s Para Athletics & Race Running team, contending in the T35 100m and 200m on consecutive days. In her first International competition, Pip was cheered on by family and friends as she battled her way to 4th (100m) & 5th (200m), narrowly missing out on those podium places. And the excitement didn’t stop there… Off the track, a great team spirit and friendly atmosphere saw Pip making friends with other athletes, supporters and officials from as far afield as Singapore and USA! A wonderful experience at a fantastic competition.
North Somerset AC would like to add how incredibly proud we are of Pip; she has worked hard for 6 years to earn this well-deserved call up and is much loved within the club.
Watch below to see Pip take second place in her heat on the line!
Pip fighting off the competition to earn her place in the final of the 200m!

Best in the West!

The results are in and it’s official … North Somerset Athletic Club have won the award for Athletics or Running Club of the Year in the South West Region!

This award forms part of the England Athletics Annual Volunteer Awards and was decided by the South West Regional Council. Thank you to the council for making this decision, we’re ecstatic!

And the excitement doesn’t stop here … who else is being crowned Coach of the Year 2018 in the South West region but our very own Chris! I’m sure I speak for all of NSAC when I say ‘well-deserved’!

 

On behalf of the North Somerset Athletic Club committee, I want to thank every single person who gets involved, in whatever capacity. Whether you are an Athlete, Coach, Official, Committee Member, Team Manager or general helper, you are the reason we have won this award. Combine this with the imminent completion of Phase 2 of the training facility, and I don’t think you can deny, we are flying! Keep your eyes peeled as we invite you to take on a larger role in our continuing success story … coming soon!

The 401 Festival of Running – PORTISHEAD

Many of you may have heard of the story of Ben Smith (go and read Ben’s story if you haven’t yet!) and his 401 Marathons in 401 days.

Now, local guy Ben runs the 401 foundation, there to raise money and to help others who have struggled with bullying and been left feeling down in the dumps. Their focus is how running, and generally leading a healthy lifestyle can pick you up when you’re feeling down and help you achieve things you never thought possible!

 

On the 25th & 26th August, the 401 foundation are hosting the Festival of Running – a collective of fun races to help raise some money and awareness of the cause. The best news? It’s taking place in PORTISHEAD!!

Athletes Unite to Continue Successful Streak in Avon League 2018

The third round of the Avon Track & Field League played out against a backdrop of ominous clouds that whilst threatening torrential rain, never actually materialised! Going into the fixture at Gloucester North Somerset Athletic Club were hanging onto the top spot, with both Bath & Yate breathing down the necks. Traditionally the August fixture affects NSAC more than others, with holidays leaving the Club short of athletes. This time was no different, but with Team Managers working minor miracles with selections, and a massive effort by all Athletes NSAC were able to finish an excellent third on the day, and somehow maintaining our grip on top spot.

Mini Marathon

Keira was kind enough to profile her experience at the London Mini Marathon; a wonderful insight into the day from Keira!

 

Being a part of the London Mini Marathon team for the South West was an amazing, unforgettable experience. I travelled on the team bus on the Saturday afternoon to Royal Holloway College in Surrey, where every athlete from all regions in the country stayed overnight.
Upon arrival we were handed our team kit, race numbers and timing chips, at this point we attached it all to our clothing ready for the race the following day.
The next morning we were up very early to travel into London to get ready for the race. We started at Billingsgate and ran from mile 23 to 26, passing landmarks like The Shard, London Eye and the final 1km run was around St James Park and the best part was The Mall past Buckingham Palace to the finish line.
Overall it was an amazing experience and great to get to know the girls I have competed against all season.

Avon League – Halfway Update!

At the halfway stage of this year’s Avon Track & Field League, North Somerset AC hold the lead position with plenty of clubs snapping at our heels. As has become customary, NSAC’s athletes showed versatility to score points in not only favourite events, but also in less familiar ones, to support the efforts of the Club. Fantastic effort in supporting the athletes from Team Managers, Coaches, Officials, and Volunteers, helping create the environment for success.

The first event was held at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex, and saw NSAC kick off the campaign by winning the overall event.  Winners from the event;

Hannah Bolt and Ella Young joint winners of the u17 ladies 100m in 13.60 seconds

u17 mens relay – James Gentile, Carlos Tailor, Adam Routley, Oliver Davies (47.80 seconds)
Senior mens relay – Rich Brunsdon, Russ Forsbrook, Andy Ballentine, Chris Millard (53.60 seconds)

The second event was held on one of the hottest days of the year, the mercury in excess of 30 degrees, at Filton College WISE Campus. NSAC finished second to a strong Team Bath Team, but the second place finish ensure they remain top, just ahead of Yate and District. Winners on the day as follows;

Nyree Perry u13 girls Long Jump (4.58 seconds) and Discus (16.55 metres)

Head Coach Chris makes return to International Athletics

North Somerset Athletic Club Head Coach Chris Millard returned to competition following a 2-year gap caused by injury, with a bang. Four races, four National titles and another National record later confirmed what a good decision it was to return, rather than the very real alternative of retirement after a 24-year career of high-level sprinting.

The first event took part at the amazing Cardiff Met Indoor facility. Running in the difficult outside lane, in the 200m Chris led from gun to tape, comfortably winning his 38th National Title. Number 39 came in the 60m. Chris’s time of 7.61 seconds was a National M50 record, and again the victory was never in doubt after a blistering start.

The wins earned Chris selection for Wales at the GB Inter-Area event at Lee Valley in North London. The lanes, results and performances almost identical to the earlier events in Cardiff a very pleasing return

“Its been a great start to the year. I was anticipating easing my way back in, but these results have catapulted me back into the spotlight. Its always great to pull the red vest of Wales on, I never tire of it, its an honour. As always, thank you to The Club at Cadbury House for their continued support”

As for Millard’s plans going forward in his 25th year of competition “Obviously I would love to get to 50 National Titles, I now believe that is doable, hopefully in the next couple of years (injuries permitting). I have three other goals, but for now I will keep those to myself, as these will take some seriously perfect training to become realistic!”
