As part of the joint team with Holland Sports and DMVAC, 5 RPAC athletes (juniors & seniors) competed in the SAL match at the Bromley track on Saturday. Each team fields 2 athletes in each event, competing in either the A or B race. Each team can also field extra competitors as non scorers in any event.

Running in his first ever competitive 100m, Jake Chandler came 4th in the B race with a time of 13.25 seconds; an excellent debut.

Drew Burridge set another 2 PBs; finishing 2nd in the A race 400m in 53.86 seconds and winning the B race 200m in 23.91 seconds; an improvement of 0.38 seconds. 

Abbie Horsfall, running in her first competition since 2017 finished 3rd in the A race 200m, improving her PB by 0.23 seconds to 27.95 seconds.

Noah Young, still only 14 years old, finished a very creditable 3rd in the B race 1500m, breaking 5 minutes for the first time to achieve a PB of 4 mins 55.4 secs.

Not to be outdone, Senior team captain Tom Almond knocked 29 seconds of his 5000m PB in breaking 17 minutes for the first time.  Tom finished 2nd in the A race in 16 minutes 33.8 seconds. 

The next SAL meeting is on Sunday 19 May at the Hercules Wimbledon track. Contact Jo Davey or Ginevra Stoneley if you wish to compete
