Dartford HAC & Central Park AC Championships
CENTRAL PARK, DARTFORD SEP 12-13, 2020
It was obvious that there is massive pent-up demand for local competitive action from Cambridge Harriers, young and old, as a phenomenal 40 club athletes turned up at a hot Central Park to compete in the open event in conjunction with the Dartford Harriers and Central Park club Championships. They competed in a total of 59 events over the 2 days of the championships.
A major highlight was Warwick Dixon's 2 new British M85 records in the Hammer throw and Shot. Warwick christened the newly refurbished hammer cage with a best throw of 31.34m, going on to record a best of 8.38m for the shot.
Other highlights were PBs for Nuriah Orhurhu, Shaquille Fernandez-folkes, Dejaune Lingard, Bamigbe Dahunsi, Orla Stanczyk, Maja Crofts, Nikol Crofts, Kacey Walters, Abigail Babalola, Amelia Lawrence, Gervace Card, Matthew Preston, Paris Hunt and Sophie Fenner.

It was good to see some of our younger middle distance athletes finally get an opportunity to compete on the track. They all enjoyed the occasion and all put in great performances. Gervace ran in a mixed boy's and girl's race and was pushed hard all the way by Lily Slack of Tonbridge AC to record his PB.
