Updated: Jul 30, 2021

Ashton Playing Fields, Woodford Green Tuesday, July 27 2021

The second in the series of Woodford Green Open Graded meetings saw seven Harriers competing in a total of eight events. The meeting included track races over 100m, 400m and 1 mile as well as an invitation 3000m race walk. Discus was the sole field event.

Three of the club’s veterans were seeded in the same heat of the 400m. Competing over 400m for the first time, Edmund Adigwe blitzed through to stop the photo-finish clock at 54.09s seconds, but his official time was later rounded up to 54.11s to place him right at the top of the national M45 rankings!

Wole Odele finished 3rd in a season’s best time of 57.32s on his 7th 400m race of the season, and stays in 2nd position on the M55 rankings. Matthew Preston was competing over the single lap for only the first time this season. He also went on to make his maiden season’s appearance over the mile about 30 minutes later.

The 3000m invitation race walk saw a 1-2-3 finish for club members with Luc Legon taking the honours to finish in 13:57.1, as he paced Christian Hopper to a new PB of 13:58.7, a 5 second improvement on his 7th attempt at the distance this season. Hannah Hopper continued her good form, improving by 8 seconds to a best ever time of 15:10.2, also on her 7th attempt at the distance this year. Geraldine Legon was the 4th Harrier in the race walk.
