YDL upper 2: 3rd in tight match

A competitive 2nd YDL upper age group fixture at Sutcliffe Park, Eltham, on Sunday 26 May eventually saw Woodford placed 3rd. Four different teams led through the course of the day, but the combined Basildon Beagles team pulled away late on to win their 2nd successive fixture. The next 3 teams remained close, at the end of the match WGEL were placed 4th but were moved up to 3rd after initial results scrutiny, just behind Tonbridge and ahead of the composite Team ATIP with hosts Cambridge Harriers a distant fifth.

Phil Norman smashes club chase record

Phil Norman took another significant chunk off his own club steeplechase record on Saturday evening in Belgium when he clocked 8:29.37secs in the International Flanders meeting. The qualifying standard for October's World Championships is 8:29.00 so, somewhat frustratingly, he was 0.37secs short. However, the season is still young and he has until early September to make the standard.
