Harrow opened the British League season in style with a win at Crawley in Division 2 of the league scoring 321 points ahead of Thames Valley Harriers! Congratulations to the team and manager Tony Bush. Full report to follow.
Looking forward, the Club is hosting its home match for the British League on Saturday 6th June at the Woodside Stadium, Watford.
Due to changes in the way that the league now manages these events, we are responsible for providing the range of officials and need your help to ensure we can host this match successfully. Details are in the information sheet here so please contact our officials secretary Carolyn Wilson if you can help on the day.
Harrow Athletic Club’s Marella Whitfield continued her superb season by winning two medals in the Hertfordshire County championships at Watford on Saturday, taking the under 17 800 metres title in 2.20.63 and grabbing silver in the 400 metres.
Emily Russell was also in fine form, winning the under 15 hurdles, while Brittany-Anne Wiggan took bronze in the 100 metres. Kim Osuji won the under 20 discus title with a good 33.60m.
Harrow Athletic Club’s Matt Carey produced his best result for five years in placing fifth in the elite British Milers Club 3000 metres steeplechase in Watford on Saturday.
The 27-year-old broke the nine-minutes barrier in 2009 but illness and injury meant that he was unable to replicate this form until Saturday, when he clocked an impressive 9.01.28.
Marella Whitfield produced a big personal best, clocking 2.16.52 in the 800 metres.
Meanwhile, Harrow were delighted to welcome back Craig Stewart after a serious achilles injury threatened to end his career. He clocked a modest 1.57.59 for 800 metres but he is bound to take time to get back to his best after a long absence from competition.
