AT Wednesday night’s NEGP Meeting, 2 we saw a small number of our junior athletes compete at Monkton Stadium. In the 80m hurdles Daniel I’anson finished in 15.08 as our only competitor in this event where we had a number of competitors across the heats in the 200m and 800m. Rowan Steel finished in a rapid 28.58 with Freya Boon also finishing in an excellent 33.03 in the 200m heats while Rowan Steel was back in action in the 800m finishing in 2.20.30 just ahead of Zara Jones 2.20.57. Mia Wetherill crossed the line in 2.30.75 ahead of Marissa Boon 2.34.10 while Emily Vest clocked 2.43.03 and Lottie Graves 2.33.20, James I’anson 2.55.87 and Freya Boon 3.08.51.

Rowan and Zara battle it out

In the 3000m Owen Ovens was our only competitor racing with the U15 runner finishing in 10.33.52. In the high jump we had 3 of our athletes in action. Thomas Hill jumped highest with a 1.50m leap, Daniel I’anson 1.20m with brother James 1.10m. Elizabeth Clay was our only competitor in the nights discuss throwing 12.24m. In the Shot Put, pool 2 Thomas Hill and Lottie Graves threw 7.23m and 7.03m respectively. Well done all of you.

Wednesday also saw a small number of our senior Harriers head to Saltburn for the Muddy Roads Saltburn 5k which is part of their trail series. It was a successful evening for the group with Chris Fothergill and Colin Taylor taking 1st and 2nd place, Jade Hutchinson 1st senior female and 4th female on the evening with Phil Teece 2nd V60. Lee Hammond finished 55th ahead of Rob Stewart in 59th and Anne Hutchinson in 85h place.

I believe there are 3 more races in this series so our athletes have put themselves in a strong position for the rest of the races. Well done all.

Winner winner, chicken dinner!
Clockwise – Colin, Jade, Phil, Lee, Rob and Anne

Not race related but run related as Alex Boyer park run on Saturday morning beat his age cat record set in 2013 by Markhim Lonsdale crossing the line in 16.21. Great running Alex. 

Sunday saw two of our seniors competing in the Manchester Half Marathon a flat and fast course recognised as a potential PB course. It was a mixed day for our two gents with James finishing in a blistering 1.13.52 for 13th place with Dean on course for a top 50 finish until the final mile hit the wall hard spending an hour in the recovery tent before finishing the final km to cross the line in 2.15.18. Good work lads, great efforts by you both, Dean will be back after dusting himself down to break that 80 minute barrier in the future I have no doubt.
