Andrew at the Masters Indoors

Andrew Kennard travelled to Cardiff last weekend for his first competition as a 40 year old, entering three events in the British Masters Indoor Championship.

He was fairly pleased with the results of his first masters outing, given his lack of competition over the last couple of years and he’s hoping to build on them and have a succcessful summer on the track.

Andrew ran 55.94 in the heat of the 400m, finishing 5th fastest overall and just missing a place in the final. He then went overdistance with a run in the 800m, recording 2.13.49 for 8th place in the final and rounded off the weekend by showing his versatility with a long jump of 5.16 for 5th place.

Hugo’s National Success

Ten year old Hugo Fleming has shown the benefits of some good winter training with excellent performances in two national championships over the last two weekends.

On 26th February Hugo travelled to Norwich for the Schools National Biathlon Final and came 3rd in the Year 6 Boys category thanks mainly to a pb of 3.20 for the 1000m run. The competition was so close that had Hugo been one second quicker he would have won.

Yesterday (Sunday 5th March) he went to Malvern for the IAPS national cross country championships where he came 7th in the under 11 age group.

Congratulations Hugo, keep up the good work.

Ramon top scorer for Surrey

Ramon Wright and Louis Johnson were selected to compete for Surrey in the London and South East regional sportshall final at the Guildford Spectrum on Sunday 26th February.

Ramon performed well all day to become the highest scorer for Surrey in the under 15 boys competition and was the second highest individual overall. He helped Surrey to 2nd place behind winners Essex.

The under 13 boys team also came 2nd with Louis Johnson scoring a win in the vertical jump event.

 

Busy weekend for Robin

Robin Copestick continued his excellent winter form in two races over the weekend. Firstly on Friday night he ran the final race of the Poole Runners Winter 5k Series, coming 3rd in 15:49 and as a result finished 2nd senior man over the series of six races.

On Sunday morning he then tackled the Mad March Hare 20 mile road race at Christchurch. Robin ran this race last year coming 2nd in 1hr 56 mins, but his hard work this winter paid off wiith a three minute improvement to 1 hr 53 mins and a victory over a field of 300+ runners.
