The Keysoe venue near Milton Keynes offered up a cold day running on the horse cross country course which included the infamous water splash. Well done to all those who made the long journey to compete.
Top 10 results for Kayla Saunders and Damian Nevins continuing their good seasons, and congratulations to the Men’s Veterans team for keeping their top place.
In Division 1, Damian Nevins was 3rd and Jim Cooper sneeked inside the top 20 for the first time this season taking 18th place. Yemane was 57th and there was a good run from Peter Norris in 63rd.
Declan Traynor still struggling with a cold was close behind in 68th. Tim Fenn was also suffering with a cold but still produced a good run as he placed 79th winning the bragging rights at home as he beat brother Samual (97th). Graeme Jones and Nick Andrews had a close battle as both were given the same time but Graeme edged Nick by one place!
Joe Gammell (125th), Noor Mohamoud (153rd) and Kevin Concannon (175th) completed the team. Matt Carey had a good start but after turning his ankle twice in the warm-up, he suffered a calf injury and had to drop out. Tom Morris was running as a guest and finished in a time of 42:50.
Elsewhere at the West London indoor facility Jade Spencer Smith set a new personal best in the Pole Vault with a mark of 3.80m – well done Jade!
Nia Wedderburn-Goodison has also set a new Club record for 2018 (200m as an U13 just prior to joining the U15 age group).
She won Gold at the Youth championships at Lee Valley last weekend with a splendid time of 26.21!
