GOOD RUNNING by Harriers at Haselbury race! Last call for SW Track & Field Championships entries; and note deadlines for Southern Road Relays/Fell Running Champs in September

There was some good running by the Harriers at the latest of this year’s Somerset Race Series races this past Wednesday (Aug 2nd). Despite the heavy rain and strong winds there was a good turn out at the 29th running of the Haselbury 10k trail race, with 148 finishers. New member Dan Cahill was 3rd overall, whilst Ali Blaney picked up 3rd female prize.  Well done also to Luke Prior on lowering the YOAC u20s 5000m track record & read on for details of various entry deadlines. (Photo below of some of the Harriers after the Haselbury race - photo by Aimee)

At Haselbury, Dan Cahill’s time was 40.55, with Neil Biss and Justin Thomas finishing in close order in 17th and 18th in 45.12 and 45.15. Graham Goldmid was next in 25th, 46.37; then 30th Andrew Piper, 47.58; 32nd Rick Dukes, 48.43; 44th Nick Weaving, 50.51; 45th Oli Harras, 51.02; 60th, 3rdF, Ali Blaney, 53.37; 62nd, Andy Robinson, 53.51; 65th Rod Little, 54.18; 70th Paul Chadwick, 55.22; 93rd Cath Goldsmid, 61.08; 117th Karen Shears, 67.22.

 

Times at the trail race were down compared to previous years due to the conditions, and our thanks to Crewkerne Running Club and their marshals for staging the event in such conditions.

 

On the track of late, Luke Prior ran a new pb of 14.51 for the 5000m at Yate on Saturday 22nd July. Pete Grist also ran a solid 16.08 at the same meeting. Luke’s time looks like a new YOAC u20’s Club record for this distance. Note that this coming Tuesday  at track training there will be a little competition eve for those who enjoy having a go at track & field - see training schedule on calendar!
