Jim Day Memorial Pole Vault Competition

25thSeptember 2016


It was an early, chilly, soggy, early start on Sunday morning as we strapped the poles to the car and made our way to the 10th anniversary Jim Day Memorial Pole Vault Competition.

It was a busy event with an impressive start list of over 100 vaulters(I know, you didn’t realise that there were that many pole vaultersin the UK) divided into 6 pools based on starting heights & SB’s and PB’s.

We had two champions at this championships. Pat Logan who had a rather long wait to make an m55 debut in these championships as the last edition 14 months earlier he was one of the oldest m50s won the 100m and 200m double.

Our other winner, Simon Byway won the m45 400m hurdles and got a masters PB out of it (Power of 10 lists it as an absolute PB so anything better must be pre 2005)

LEN HATTON 1928 – 2016

Kingston AC & Polytechnic Harriers are extremely sad to have to report the death,at the age of 87 in Monte Carlo on 20th July,of our long-standing Patron,and Past-President,Len Hatton. Len,not to be confused with our current Chairman,Les,has been a more-than-substantial benefactor of both Polytechnic Harriers,since his first association with our predecessor club shortly after WW2,as well as the present Kingston AC & Polytechnic Harriers from the merger in 1985.

A Series of two progressive workshops open to all Leaders and Coaches.

In response to attendee feedback, these workshops have been updated for 2016-17, so that they are now aimed at assisting all coaches, regardless of their qualification level, or the ability/age of the athletes they are working with – from the 12 year old multi eventer, to the senior International Discus thrower, to the recreational road runner attempting their first 10km race.
