Walton AC U15/U17 Athletes excel at National Championships at Bedford 29th/30th August.

Congratulations to all our Walton AC athletes who competed at Bedford over the weekend. 

Everybody competed exceptionally well; to even be able to be able to enter Nationals our athletes had to get a qualifying standard so it was brillant for the club to see 9 of our athletes able to compete; 6 of them competing in their first ever National Championships.

It was a great experience for them all and definitely “fire in their bellies” to come back next year.
