Weekly Update - 26th June 2024

Orion Harriers John Clarke Memorial Fell Race, Chingford (Fri. 21st June)

Friday evening saw further proof southerners can do well travelling to hills in the north - this time, though north of the river, with six Cambridge Harriers joining the 177 runners who took part in the Orion Harriers fell race, writes Jon Wilson. The race starts just outside Chingford; it gets category ‘A’ status by packing in 250m of mostly brutal ascent into just over 5km. Amelia Lawrence was the quickest Cambridge Harrier (37th overall), winning third place female. Robert Barns was the fastest male Cambridge Harrier (53rd); Delilah Lester, the youngest runner in the race, finished 6th women (66th). James Floyd (78th), Graham Maynard (80th) and Jon Wilson (83rd) swapped places throughout the race to finish within five places of each other mid-table, James beating Graham with a spurt at the top of the final hill. Graham finished third runner aged 60+.

Kent Young Athletes League, Gillingham (Sat. 22nd June)

The U13 boys team performed well again, with new members of the team taking on events, writes Sarah Ravenscroft. Notable PB’s for Zion Odele, Will Obiorah and Phoenix London in the 100m and 200m, Johnny Ravenscroft and Oto Weir in the 800m and another great performance from Herbie Tobin. We had some success in the field too with Isaac Thompson and Johnny Ravenscroft achieving javelin PB’s and Zion Odele in the long jump.
