The Awards and the AW 2020 rankings

Even though 2020 with the COVID-19 lockdowns caused many competitions to be called off and training to be limited or cancelled, many athletes took the chance to either rest up or train somewhat more lightly this year, or even try new events. However, many of the club’s athletes went on to produce some fantastic performances as you will see below

Kelechi Aguocha picked up third place in the British Junior Male Athlete of the year award behind Max Burgin and Lewis Byng for his 2.22m high jump which was a new club record. This is a fantastic achievement for a young athlete who showed so much improvement this season.

In the AW 2020 Merit Rankings UK Men we had 8 athletes feature with James Whiteaker and Adam Gemili taking pride of place both with first places

Great night for Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC at the England Athletics Regional Awards Night

It was a successful evening for Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC at the England Athletics London Region awards ceremony on Thursday night. The Club were winners in two categories, and also achieved several runners up places. The evening’s awards could be viewed online and there many international athletes from bygone years there to ask questions of the award winners.

BBHAC were awarded “Club of the Year”, which is testament to the collective hard work and achievements of so many in the Club. In addition, Claire Austridge was named Volunteer of the Year, recognising the time and effort she freely gives to fundraising, our young athletes and the wider community.

Holly Platt, who produced an excellent video to accompany the Club’s nomination for Club of the Year award, was runner up in the “Young Volunteer of the Year” category for her outstanding contribution to the Club's social media presence.

David Liston, who has spent many years coaching the Club's middle distance athletes, achieved runner up in the Coach of the Year category. David spoke genuinely of the fulfilment coaching has given him over the years.

Finally, John Baldwin, who in over 65 years of membership has undertaken many vital roles within the club, was named runner up in the Services to Athletics category.

President Nic Corry had this to say in response to a great evening for the club:

"These awards recognise the collective efforts of the entire Blackheath & Bromley Harrier Community. BBHAC achieved success in a wide range of categories demonstrating that, even in a challenging year for the Sport of Athletics, BBHAC continues to excel as a Club. The volunteers, who freely give their time, allow us to have the platform to enable so many to succeed. We should all celebrate in this night of achievement for the Club and its volunteers!
