Ladywell 10,000 Originally planned for Sunday 6 September, it is unfortunately not viable to plan to host the event given that:
a) England Athletics are only permitting races of up to 3000m for fields of up to six athletes on the track
b) No re-opening date for the Ladywell Track
Race director, Dave Morgan, and the club still have ambitions to host an event this year and will be in touch as soon as conditions allow.
Royal Parks The Royal Parks have posted their ‘Movement Strategy‘, which maintains the closure of The Avenue in Greenwich Park for the duration of the six month trial period. However, vehicle access and parking is still possible from the Blackheath Gate, posing a risk to park users so to have a say in matter contact /" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Mat Bonomi and sign up on the link above to be involved in their review process.
UPCOMING RACES Club Champs:
Organisers are working hard to finalise the dates, distances, permits and other admin for some club championship races at Sutcliffe Park, Eltham over the coming weeks. Updates and details regarding entries will follow in due course, so stay tuned.
With the success of several events over the past couple of weeks, new races are appearing on runBritain, so take a look if interested.
RESULTS City of Lisburn Inter Club Invitiational: Making the most of a holiday across the Irish Sea, Georgina Wiley was able to put her training to good use, competing in a 5000m race on the Mary Peters Track in Belfast, last Thursday.
Georgina set a flashy new PB of 17:53, her first time sub-18 so well done! Still awaiting the results on ‘Power of 10’, but given the rarity of 5000m racing under current guidelines, the run will feature highly on current ranking lists!
Canterbury University 10km
Owen Hind returned to racing at this low-key 10km race organised under COVID-guidelines earlier today, securing a win over training partner Ross Braden, a regular 2nd claimer for the club in the Surrey League.
Any other Kent members managed to find a race? Let us know…
