Situated at the heart of Britain's oldest recorded town is the home of Colchester and Tendring Athletics Club. We take pride in the level of coaching we provide our athletes and the dedication of the many volunteers behind the scenes. Our younger athletes are encouraged with training programmes that include elements of all disciplines through fun activities. As they progress through the club to U13's and upwards, the training is more focussed on specific events with tailored training programmes. Please visit this web site regularly for information on forthcoming matches, results and news.

CATS 2016 Awards Evening
Colchester and Tendring AC held the Annual Awards evening on Friday 14th October, a little earlier this year to avoid any clashes with cross country events. This event is to recognise those Athletes who have put in great performances and supported the club throughout the past 12 months. As with previous years we had an Olympic Athlete to present the awards, this year we had the pleasure of Dominic King. The evening started with a welcome speech by Warren and thank you’ s for the coaches and league managers. Followed by the Cross Country Awards and then a question and answer session with Dominic, which opened to the members for any questions. Supper was eaten and then the main track & field awards mixed in with Debbie Castle’s 21st Birthday Celebration. Once the awards had finished Dominic drew the raffle, 1st place a laptop pc and then we had the disco.
A great evening enjoyed by all, thank you to all those involved and to Dominic King for presenting the awards and giving the motivational talk with the members.

Sports Hall Athletics
Dipping their toe in the water of Sports Hall Athletics for the first time in a number of years, a small squad of athletes from Colchester and Tendring Athletic Club, acquitted themselves really well in a well supported meeting in Ipswich.
The under 11 boys of Sam Cade, Fred Walton and Nathan Karri ran very well considering it was the first time they had tried the equipment. Katie Roberts in the under 11 girls did particularly well in the long jump, whilst Evan Roberts and Isaac Price stormed through in shot putt as well as being very competitive in the longer running events. Lucy Page and Alex Penny were in the top slots in a number of events.
All enjoyed the experience

Essex Cross Country League
Colchester and Tendring A C cross country season got under way at One Tree Hill on Saturday in the Essex League event .though lacking in depth there were a number of good individual results, in the Senior Women 6k race Super vet Margaret Deasy came 8th being first over 45 to finish with a time of 26mins 32secs, the U17 women’s 5k saw Mary Ann Deasy have her best run to date over the country 7th - 19mins 30secs closely followed by a fine run from Elsie Gray 8th - 19mins 34secs. Saffron Rose gave a good account of herself in the U15 Girls 17th – 18.09. In the Under 13 Girls two promising youngsters showed a good attitude Mazy King was 28th – 15.52 with Molly Redgrave making her debut 30th – 16 01.
In the Senior Men race 17 year old Joseph Patterson worked hard in the 8.5km finishing 22nd overall – 29.06 (7th U20.), In the U17 Men 6k. Ben Miller dug deep to finish 7th – 23.37 with a gritty run coming from Freddy Richardson 17th – 25.08, Ermes Akewerki U15 Boys 4k in his first cross country race showed up well and looks set for a good season once he gets his pace right finishing a useful 17th – 14m.50.
Report John Hyland
Well done to all the Under 13 & Under 11 athletes who competed in last week's mini-competition at the track. There were some very good performances in the four events, the results for which are below. These results will now be passed to the club coaches to be used to target training for those with talents in particular events. Apologies for the delay with the results, the sheer weight of numbers on the night posed some problems to the organisation, with more athletes than ever taking part. I assure you all that lessons have been learnt! Congratulations to those who received their gold, silver and bronze medals on Monday evening. We have certificates for all who took part which are a record of your achievements on the night, ready for collection at training. Full results can be found HERE

Essex Cross Country Relays
In sizzling temperatures, and not a spot of mud in sight anywhere, 3 intrepid young ladies from CATS competed in the Essex Cross County relays today. Winks, Georgie and Sian did the vest proud and each completed their leg of the relay in 20:09, 20:09 and 23:18 respectively. Great runs from each of them and a really good comeback for Sian after missing the last two seasons with injury.
There were literally 100s of entrants and I have no idea where they finally came, but whilst I know they did not medal they could well have been mid field, which all in all I thought was a very good effort from the three of them.
I was really surprised by how many were there (probably helped by the weather) with multiple teams entered in each category by most clubs.
So well done to the three girls for being the sole representatives for CATS
