HONOURS ARE SHARED

SIX DIFFERENT CLUBS TAKE THE GOLD MEDALS IN THE YOUNG ATHLETES’ EVENTS

IN NEAR-PERFECT weather, with very little wind, the races went off like clockwork, with each age-group’s boys going off first, followed five minutes later by the girls. There was some overlap, especially of the back markers, but all turned out well.

Conditions were near perfect as the men’s U17 race got underway

As last year, six different clubs shared the team gold medals, but only Aldershot, Farnham & District’s under-17 girls retained their title, although Shaftesbury Barnet’s under-15 winning boys from 2015 moved up to add the under-17 crown.

Titles for the taking: the women’s under-17 race begins at Sutton Park

The event had been in danger of being called off as the prebooked first-aiders failed to show, but several came forward in response to announcements for qualified personnel.

Jeremy Dempsey: anchored Shaftesbury to U17 victory despite feeling ill

Fourteen different clubs shared the medals from the 18 available and Tonbridge, with three boys’ bronzes, Herne Hill with an under-15 girls’ gold and under-17 women’s girls bronze, and Aldershot with an under-13 boys’ silver and under-17 women’s gold were the only clubs to take more than one team medal.

Besides their medals, the athletes were also presented with engraved silver salvers donated by the Amateur Athletics Association.

The first gold medals of the day went to Herne Hill’s under-13 boys after their Jaden Kennedy, the fastest overall with 13:02 for the 3,863m lap, moved them up from 11th to the lead on the second leg. Jacob Harrison, the third quickest, ensured they won by a good margin. His twin brother Ben had run their first stage. Aldershot’s Harry Hyde chased forlornly on the third and final lap and clocked the second best time of 13:11.

Earlier, Zena Saez had taken the opening leg for Bedford with the fourth best time.

Southern under-13 girls champions Poole AC followed the boys home for a 20-second margin over Midland winners

Wreake & Stour Valley. Second-stage runner Emelie Castagna moved them from 24th to 3rd mid-race before Ashia Wilson finished things off. Birchfield had led on the first lap with the quickest time of 13:48 by Amy Harland, but they slipped back to third by the finish.
