The Senior Women kicked off K&P's 2nd promotion in 3 days and a much improved performance in a 250-strong field by our squad moved the team up the league table to 11th of the 15 clubs in Division One.
Rachel Burbridge ran one of her best races,taking an excellent 13th overall(26.51), and then enhanced runs from Avelline Deighton(43-29.45) & TM Debbie Raymond(54-30.48),followed by debutante Catherine Reed-Mark's wife(88-33.15), Nicki Murphy(103-33.41) & Liz Richardson(110-34.00 )both suffering gallantly from the effects of recent colds and Johanna Gibbons(124-36.10) reflected a much improved team effort -we were 11th on the day and are similarly placed overall of the 15 clubs in the division.
We had 6 youngsters - after winning the Borough Schools 2 days earlier over the same course,Harriet Owens was well to the fore in the U15/U13 Girls taking a fine 4th(16.14),ahead of the very promising Charlie Kelly(3rd U13-16.23),and then Isobel Penney(12th U15-17.11),Kirsten Owens(23rd U13-18.49),Eleanor Cannon(25th U13-19.07) and,perhaps eyeing the 400 hurdles in the future,our top U15 sprint hurdler,Harriet Lester(26th-20.58),also running the course for the 2nd time in 3 days. Teamwise,we were 3rd in both age groups and are 7th & 5th overall.
The park was reasonably benign and thus the advertised distances were probably short on authenticity!!!!
We are one of the biggest and friendliest athletics clubs in London and compete across a huge array of leagues, events and championships and have athletes of literally all standards and ages and across all events.
Whether you are an 8 year old novice, a senior international or a “more mature” athlete looking to get back into the sport – we can help you achieve your goals.
