We’ve reached the time of year where the schools success is sought with competitions being fiercely contested – it’s great to see all the brilliant results coming through. Please do share how your athlete is getting on whether it is sports day or a bigger meet. Unfortunately, we are unable to access most of those results and we can only report on what we are told about!  

Essex 5K Track Championships

On Friday night three of our Beagles competed in the Essex 5K track championships at Ilford Athletics Club. A gruelling 12 and a half laps of the track requires great focus and commitment and was a first for our athletes. So congratulations on a great first attempt and some good times:

Laura Durn finished 4th in the V40 female age group with her run of 22:21.2.

Jonathan Warner finished third in the men’s C race with a time of 17:06.8.

Elliot Worth finished as eighth V50 man with his time of 19:50.7.

Crown to Crown

A great Wednesday night for Max Sanderson at this week’s Crown to Crown 5k organised by Pitsea Running Club. Max finished in second place overall, first male youth and with a great new PB of 18:36. Well done (thanks to Laurence for the pics here).
