The Club hosted the Harrow Borough trials today for the London Mini Marathon event which is due on 23rd April on the morning of the London Marathon.
Well done to all the athletes who ran and many thanks to all the volunteers and helpers who came along today to make the event run smoothly.
The results are now available online here. Ps: would Callum Smyth in the U17’s event please contact Mike Lepps asap.
Congratulations to Teepee Princewill who set a new Club under 20 triple jump record of 15.35 on 5 March in Cardiff. The previous record of 15.26 was set in 2011 by James Okeyemi.
The oldest Club record, set in 1979 by Richard Philps, is the senior triple jump record of 15.47. This could go in 2017, with both Teepee and Tony Daffurn in contention to go beyond 15.47.

The results of the fourth round of the North West London League which was held at Hampstead Heath on 18th February have been made available and the Harrow athlete results posted here. In the Under 11 Boys there was a super win for Rohan Mangat whilst Kayla Saunders placed fourth in the U11 girls race.
Rachel Haddow also ran well to place third in the U17’s womens race – well done to all the athletes! Hopefully I will get the final round results this week for the fixture held at the ‘Scrubs yesterday.
Other late results are from the National Cross Country championships held at a muddy looking Woolaton Park, Nottingham, last week. There were strong runs from Damian Nevins and Jim Cooper in the senior mens race and Eve O’Goan led home the U13’s girls team who were just one athlete shy of a scoring team.
