Thankfully, we are starting to see signs of a return to track & field athletics this summer and the county association has now confirmed the annual T&F Champs, postponed from 9th May, will now be held at Wavertree on Saturday 21st August. Further details will follow in due course.
We are saddened to report the passing of Jim Smith. Jim had been involved in athletics for over 35 years after being identified as a ‘willing’ parent, following his daughter Cathy around various Liverpool Harriers events. He was a great supporter of club and county athletics, and a long time track judge. He lost his battle against Covid and passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday.

A decision will be taken later on whether the championships can be staged later in the season or cancelled outright.
