The Little Athletics athletes took part in a new competition format on Friday night.
Competing as clubs, rather than age groups, changed the focus of all athletes, making for a fun and very inclusive evening of athletics.
Next week the club returns to normal Saturday morning athletics; see you there at 8.30am, bring a friend if you want!
