This weekend Results…..

Harriers’ athletes earned 22 medals at Day One of the County Cross Country Championships at the weekend. Held on the Garrison Course at Colchester on Saturday the U13, U15 and Veterans’ championship were held for both males and females. Individual medals were won by Harry Parker and Amber Pullinger. Harry won the U13 boys race in majestic style. With some testing races facing him Harry should be equal to their challenges. Amber is consistently excellent this season, and toughed her race out to finish 2nd. Both led their teams to medals. The under 13 boys were 3rd. Jamie Mack 11th and Dylan Harrod 19th produced season’s best runs while it was good to see Teddy Norcott make the scoring team for the first time and with it a hard-earned County Medal. Also finishing was Sonny Verhitt 38th. Amber was backed well by Hayley Instance 9th, Lucie Ball 14th, Amy Raven 35th who ensured the team took silver medals – a pleasant and very welcome surprise for the Harriers management and coaching team. The under 15 boy’s team earned bronze medals. Taylor Newell 8th, Leon Wheeler 9th, Sarab Dhillon 18th and Ben Prior made up this podium quartet – all with excellent runs. This strong section of the Club also included Mason Hambleton 35th, Henri Willett 37th and Ellis Swindell finished 41st. The under 15 girl’s team finished 5th with...

This weekend Results…..

7 Thurrock Harriers were among the 540 finishers at the ultra fast Chelmsford 10k on Sunday; 5 of them returned personal bests. The determined Keith Willett chipped half a minute from his best to return 37m20s in 30th place. Adam Dowman was just 10 seconds and 1 place behind him. Adam’s training has been limited in recent weeks so he can be satisfied with this effort, not too far from his pb. A delighted Toby Draper removed nearly a minute from his previous best with 38m09s. Brothers Tim and Keith Martin had a race long dual which ended in a frantic home straight battle where former footballer Keith just pipped his sibling, Keith’s time was 40m31s, Tim’s time 40m33s. Both times very big pb’s for them.Paul Mitchell ran a well judged race to miss his pb by a few seconds. His time was 43m15s.Orsett based Gary Rowlatt’s 43m45s was his best by some margin. A fitting reward for his recently increased training. It is not often Father and Son finish 1st and 2nd in a race but Martin Mack and son Jamie did just that in Saturday’s Park Run on Orsett Heath. 12 year old Jamie led from start to finish in dreadful weather conditions to return 20m40s to beat his Dad by 40s. A further 20 seconds back Kirk Bundy had a great run to finish 3rd. This...
