Weekend Round Up 11th/12th March

It was a busy weekend for the distance runners with two of Waltons’ top cross country runners, John Redshaw and James Harvey in action at the Intercounty Cross Country Championships in Nottingham
 Both were representing Surrey, John finished an excellent 77th out of 320 in the U20 race and James  had a great run for 118th in the senior race

Michelle Oldham was also bury, continuing her preparation for the London Marathon with an excellend run in the Fnchley 20
She completed the course in a very respectable time of 2hr 30:23. and will move on to the Fleet half marathon next weekend.

A very successful Saturday at the Surrey Indoor Championships saw four of Walton’s senior athletes compete and bring home five medals.

Helen Williams led the way with two medals,  winning the long jump with 5.51m and coming 2nd in the 60m sprint with a time of 7.90s. Jo Regan achieved what we think is a pb, since she entered the masters ranks, of 4.76 to pick up the long jump silver medal.

Walton had another winner in Adam McCarthy, who claimed the 60m hurdles title in 11.48s. Adam also ran 7.69 for 3rd place in his heat of the 60m sprint, failing to progress beyond the heat by only nine hundredths of a second.

Last , but certainly not least, was Craig Timmings in the pole vault. Craig vaulted 4.00m, for the second time in his life, equalling his outdoor pb and claiming a new indoor pb and also the silver medal.

Congratulations to all four.
