Jenny Meadows is a British 800m runner. She first represented GB in 2000, as a member of the GB Junior 4x400m relay squad, helping them to become World Junior Champions. In 2008, Jenny won the European Team Cup and was also part of the Olympic team in Beijing. Her breakthrough came at the 2009 World Outdoor Championships, where she recorded a lifetime best of 1.37.93 and become the 3rd fastest British woman of all time.

Jenny is familiar with Pentathlon, as she was present at the National School Games 2018, where Laser Run made its debut.

This training is open to both Pentathlon and Pony Club athletes and is suitable for all abilities. The day represents an exciting opportunity to benefit from Jenny’s excellent coaching skills focusing on running mechanics and technique.

The day will include a presentation from Jenny Meadows. Parents are welcome to attend this, as it will be beneficial for both athletes and parents. The run-focused training will be led by Jenny Meadows with shoot coaching delivered by our Shoot coaches.

Please make sure you remember to bring suitable clothing and footwear for shooting and running, and plenty of food and drinks for the day.

Well done to all of those who helped pack bags at Tesco's in Beverley. We raised a fantastic £355 which will go towards the purchase of new fencing equipment for the Club.  And a big Thank You to Steve Hood for organising the day.

February 2020 Half Term- Training Opportunity in Germany

Pentathlon Hereford are planning to go for training and a competition in Berlin with the German youth pentathletes over the period of 19/23 February 2020, and the opportunity is being opened up to pentathletes from Yorkshire. The details are as follows:

Flights will be from London Heathrow to Berlin Tegel airport , which is about twenty minutes from where the competition is due to take place at the (1936) Olympic Stadium. The accommodation will also be here.
Accommodation and the competition will be at the (1936) Olympic Stadium.
The format is a youth tetrathlon competition taking place over two days. The swim is in an indoor 25 metre six lane pool, with the fencing taking place in the salle next door to the pool. There are ten metal fencing pistes on which the competition takes place. They use the latest electronic laser range which was used this year for their big national 100 competition that was televised live in August this year.
There will be competitors from Berlin and also their other centre at Potsdam, in total over 100 competitors, so there will be something for all youth ages. It is a well organised and run competition, as well as being very friendly. It is a fantastic chance for athletes to get good competition experience, but they should be able to fence.
Athletes have been invited to train before hand for a couple of days so the intention is to travel out on Wednesday 19th and return on Sunday 23rd February. The competition finishes at about lunch time Sunday in plenty of time to get the evening flight back from Berlin.
The cost for five days food, accommodation and training as well as the competition will be £300 plus flights which the athletes would need to book individually.

Bernie Moss will be the travelling coach and Rachel Wreyford will be the team manager.

If anyone from Yorkshire is interested, please contact Steve Hood.
