England U15 5K Road Champs

Six of our Under 15s made the trip to Sutton Park, Birmingham, for the England Under 15 5k Road Race Champs being staged for the first time before the famous Men's 12-Stage and Women's 6-Stage National Relays.

On this occasion, the weather was kind to our athletes, with it being slightly warmer than of late and the sun shining.

Results

There were some fine performances at the Woodford Green Open on Saturday 31 March, despite temperatures still at winter levels. The hammer saw some of the worst conditions, but the heavy rain did not prevent Andreea Golban moving to 4th in the early season U17 ranking with 49.64 and Simbiyat Sikiru (who was 8th ranked U15 in 2017) improving her PB to 43.08. U15B Kai Wright improved his PB to 32.04 while senior Peter Clarke registered a solid 53.90 season opener. Similarly, Hugh Williams produced solid performance to wins the senior SP (12.52) and DT (34.28). The jumps were ruined by the weather, with the exception of a Wasps LJ competition which came after a spirited Easter egg hunt and before the heaviest rain.
