The story so far … Biggleswade’s SAL campaign 2018

As Biggleswade AC competitors prepare for match 3 of this season’s Southern Athletics League campaign, which takes place later today, 23 June, at Parliament Hill, here’s a summary of the season so far, taking in results at Perivale and Peterborough.

A quick reminder to all taking part – do let us know how you get on, and please do flag up any PBs or performances you’re particularly proud of via the forum or the BAC members’ Facebook page. As all the team will attest, there’s still plenty of room in the squad for those willing and able to do their bit – the more gaps that get filled, the higher up the league table BAC will climb. No contribution is too small – every point is massively valuable, and with opposition teams also unable to field full teams, coming “last” is relative – it can still mean huge points.

Huge thanks to Darren Janssen for his photos from the fixtures so far, and good luck to those making the journey today!
