Kent League at Danson Park
With almost 50 club athletes in action at round three 3 of the Kent League held at Danson Park, the different age group teams had different levels of success.

For the first time in a while we were able to field a ladies team with Jess Keene finishing 6th, Carole Penlington 10th, Millie Smith 12th, Jenny Butler 26th and Lorna Clowes 33rd, giving Jess and Millie 1st and 2nd in the under 20 age group race.

The under 17 ladies packed 4 in the top 20 to lead the league with Ellie Osmond 2nd, Jess Neal 6th, Bethany Panton 8th and Emily Davis 19th, while the under 15 girls are also first in the league after 3 events fielding 12 athletes of which 5 made the top ten with Hannah Clark 2nd, Ellie Dolby 4th, Olivia Berry 5th, Daniella Harper 6th and Amelia Middleton 8th. The under 13 girls fielded 6 athletes and hold third place in the league with Carys Firth 7th, Sofia Plum-Maher 22nd and Olivia Magee-Brown 27th.

With no senior mens race at the event, the club had Callum Myatt take 2nd in the under 20 mens race with Theo Wood 9th, while Joseph Giorgiadis led the under 17 mens team to 3rd overall in the league so far with Henry Fisher 13th, Cameron Swatton 15th and Justin Strover 22nd, while the under 15 boys led home by Tom Brash in an excellent 4th place followed by Matthew Smith in 16th and Will Andrews in 17th to maintain 2nd place overall. The under 13 boys hold onto 4th place with three boys making the top 20 on the day with Arthur Starvis 11th, Jamie Sears 15th and Joshua Healey 19th.

Elsewhere in Spain at an international event in Burgos, the Atapuerca event had Will Fuller representing England in the mens senior race and he ran brilliantly for 33rd place and third Englishman home in the 9km race across flat but fast fields, against top class world opposition.

Cheltenham Half Marathon and England Masters
With the track season now well over it is the turn of our longer distance runners to grab the spotlight for at least a few months.

At the Cheltenham half-marathon a team of 4 runners from the club participated with three of them establishing new pbs. First home was Ross Braden with his new pb of 72.50, followed by Chris Tuck on 17th place with 76.32. Tom Desborough claimed 37th spot with a pb of 81.45 and Richard Byford also ran a pb with 90.19 for 138th place. The race had 1556 finishers so a great performance by all 4 runners.

At the England Masters Inter Area XC match at Bury St Edmunds, Clare Elms finished 10th in the ladies race in 22.42 and first lady in the V50 category and only a little over a minute behind the overall winner.
