NORMAN PARK, BROMLEY Sunday, Oct 11, 2020


An all track open on the second Sunday of October saw 17 Harriers amongst the competition-hungry 401 entries. Hurdlers and race walkers have been the most deprived of track competition in their specialist disciplines this peculiar season, so it was no surprise to see 5 club members amongst the 12 competing in the 2k Walk. They exerted some dominance in occupying the top 3 places. Cambridge Harriers also made up 6 of the 160 entries for the 800m and 5 of the 120 entries for the 1500m.

There were also season's bests for Ian McCarthy over 800m and for Matthew Preston and Isabella Richards in the 1500m races.
