11/05/08 - Sevenoaks 7 or Jamie’s road to recovery

Blackheath & Bromley Harriers athlete Jamie Atkinson has started out on the road to recovery following his quadricep injury which forced him out of the London Marathon and caused a three week layoff from running.

Following extensive physiotherapy, Jamie competed in his first race last Tuesday at Tonbridge where he came third in the Kent 5000m Championships, only 10.3seconds behind Blackheath & Bromley’s in form Peter Tucker.

On Sunday, Jamie along with his coach Gordon Cooper and fellow team mate Tony Mulcock, all competed in the Sevenoaks 7 mile race in Knole Park. The course has had a revamp since last year and was considerably harder than the previous layout.

With temperatures in the mid 70’s the race was always going to be hard for all the runners. Jamie made sure that he was fully prepared for the race, hydrated and fully stretched out and warmed up before the start. Jamie’s main threat in the race was his old training partner Allan Lee from Sevenoaks AC, who is fully fit and a strong runner on his ‘Home’ course.

Allan and Jamie set of leading the pack, feeding off each other and leaving the rest behind until approximately the 4Km mark, while climbing a sharp incline Jamie’s quads cramped again causing him to stop and stretch out the offending muscles before chasing Allan again, the same thing happened on the 2nd lap of the park, by this time Allan was 45 secs ahead of Jamie and cruised to an easy win, with Jamie taking 2nd place.

After the race Jamie said “Allan Lee is a class act when it comes to distance running and he was a very strong influence on me as a junior athlete, so if I have to lose then it hurts a little less when it is one of my former mentors, but we will see next year!"

Met Police Team Dominate National Police Champs The Met Police Cross Country team dominated the annual British Police Cross Country Championships in Pontypool, Gwent on the 6th of Feb. This fixture doubled as the trials for the European Championships. It was a beautiful day and a monstrous course. The competitors were generally apprehensive before starting due to some of the climbs on the course.

The Men's event contained several international runners. Dave Mitchinson, an international marathon runner won the event for Herts Police. Steve Rhys-Jones of Hampshire followed home in 2nd. Rhys-Jones another international on the road. Ben Whitby of City of London was 3rd. Whitby is a former GB no.1 for steeplechase. Richard Gardner, welsh international, could only finish 6th. In the Met team, Peter Tucker (PolRec) led the team home, finishing 5th and thus beating Gardner. Tucker therefore gained an automatic place in the GB Police Team for the European Championships. Tucker also led the Met team to an astonishing victory in the team race. The team consisted of Tucker 5th, Rhys Peters (XB) 9th , James Brown (TX) 13th , Leigh Packer (ZD) 15th, Karl Free (XB) 16th and Paul Wyatt (3TSG) 19th . This gave an amazing total of 77 points. Hampshire took the silver medal home in the team as well as the individual but were 155points behind the Met team. The Met's B team was 3rd on the day only 14 points behind the silver medallists

10 Ella Fisher 25.21 1st Team

16 Clare Lodwig 25.57
20 Kate Pratten 26.18
33 Carolyna Jones-Baldock 27.27

The last of the Senior Womens race was at a new venue at Nurstead Court. It had a bit of everything, fields, woods, hills, pond! – which had the ice broken before we ran through it. Apologies to those who didn’t know about this, I didn’t mention it beforehand in case it affected your decision to run!! Despite having wet feet after the first kilometre, it was a good course. We finished the league on a high note as our top three came 1st in the team event. Jennie returned in time for the last race and ran very well after a lengthy time off due to injury, coming in third. Rosie was a minute behind in fifth, and Ella, proving that training works, came in 10th.

Overall our team were 3rd for the season behind Medway and Dartford. Not bad considering we only had 2 runners at Capstone park! In the overall individual results Ella and Carolyna did all 4 races and came 6th and 12 respectively. In the Vets category Rosie was 10th. Well done to everyone who competed over the winter season, you now have 7 months to wait before the next one!!

Southern Cross country Championships Parliament Hill, 26 Jan 2008

Senior Women

83 Rosie Ferguson 38.57
97 Bridget Davey 39.52
107 Jane Bradshaw 40.09
126 Kate Pratten 41.22 14th team, 1st Kent team

147 Ella Fisher 42.33
164 Carolyna Jones-Baldock 43.51
165 Clare Lodwig 43.51
204 Annie McDonough 45.32 23rd Team

218 Anne Cillia 46.38
233 Tara Emery 47.13
257 Justine Eastbury 49.47

As always when the race is at Parliament Hill you can expect to get muddy, and this year was no exception. Those who ran will know what I refer to as slurry hill! Fortunately we only had one faller, Justine who managed to land on (very) soft ground!

I must congratulate Jane as she ran in trail shoes and managed to stay upright the entire time.

Our scoring 4 all ran well, Well done to Rosie for bringing the team home first, and I think the battle for 2nd with Bridget and Jane would have been closer if Jane had spikes. There was a sprint finish for Carolyna and Clare, but the addition of time chips meant that although they crossed the line together, someone has to come first.

I’m pleased to say that we were the first Kent team to finish, though our mob rivals SLH an Ranelagh both managed to get in the top 10.

With a few additions to the team for the nationals it should be a good competition, and those of us who ran at the weekend will have no fear if it looks a bit wet!

We are racing at a new course in Alton this year so the course is as yet unknown.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.


PS. Carolyna and I returned to ‘slurry hill ‘during the mens race to watch for casualties, sadly we only saw one!!
