NEARLY 250 athletes and parents packed into Princes Hall in Clevedon to celebrate a superb year for North Somerset Athletic Club.

They won the South West Track & Field League at the first attempt, three of the five categories in the Gloucester Cross-Country League, top of the table of medallists at the prestigious Bristol Road Mile/Street Sprints, and supplying the majority of the Avon team that won five of the six categories in the South West Sportshall Championships (and UK winners in the under-13 boys).

Add to this, the count of national champions since 2005 standing at 17, with well over 30 national medallists, and over 70 regional 
champions, things continue to grow in what has become the top junior 
athletics club in the area.

Anyone aged 8+ wishing to involve 
themselves in not only a successful, 
but also a fun-based sporting club, 
will always be made welcome.
