Last Sunday saw Club athletes racing in four different counties to get in some good competition in their chosen events, some to assess their current early season track form, whilst others extended their XC season into their Road Racing program.
Firstly on the track, in the John Newsome Memorial Open Meeting at Wakefield, Sophie Wood had an excellent victory in the Junior /Senior Women’s 400m Race recording a time of 56.69 (pb), just ahead of teammate Samantha Coleby 2nd in 57.01, who did a good speed workout for her 800m racing, with Rebecca Mott (u/20) 5th in 62.51 (pb). In the Junior/Senior Men’s 400m Cameron Bain (u/23) also had a fine run finishing 2nd but dipping under 50secs for the first time to record a 49.91(pb), with teammate Scott Armstrong (u/20) 5th in 52.88.
