Emile Cairess – Athletics

Emile has been awarded a grant towards equipment and travel expenses for the next season.

In order to progress with my running development to national level I will need new training shoes and clothes and funding for staying in hotels overnight at races in various parts of the country. My main achievements to date are: 3 Yorkshire Championships (2 track titles and 1 cross country title); 3 x Northern medalist (2 track (1 gold); 1 cross country ( Sainsbury’s School Games silver medalist (3000m).
I ‘m going to compete in the Nationals at parliament Hill this year; the Northern XC, the McCane Cross Country races ( Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool, Milton Keynes); I have been chosen to take part in the Training Camp in Twickenham after coming in the first 10 in the mini marathon recently. Accommodation is provided but I have to find travel costs. I need to compete in the English Schools, Northern track and the Inter counties events as well as run for my club in the YDL events (transport provided for this) and Senior League matches (no transport).

I need this funding due to living in a single parent household. My mum says she hopes I’ve stopped growing now and that she won’t have to keep replacing track and training shoes and running kit but I would like to give her some support and if I receive a grant that would go towards helping.
