Lilah Sets New U15G'S 800m Record from David Mills

Competing at the London Hurdles and Middle Distance Open Meeting in Bromley on Saturday, Lilah Unwin produced an outstanding performance to clock 2.16.12 for her 800m. A new PB and a new club record! Lilah is currently performing at a consistently high level.


At the same meeting there were new PB's in the 1500m for U17 Eva Marsh who won her race in a speedy 5.03.14, and for U13 Max Orchard with a quick 4.56.50 in his first race of the season over the longer distance. Both continue to produce excellent performances.


Another young athlete performing consistently well is Shakila Keable, and at the same meeting, Shakila broke through the 11 minute barrier in the 3000m with a new PB time of 10.54.92.

Meanwhile, also on Saturday, across London at the HHH Open Endurance Meeting being staged at the Millennium Arena in Battersea, U15 Samuel Stapley took 4 seconds off his 800m PB to record a great time of 2.08.7.

U17 Oscar Curry maintained his good level in the 800m with 2.06.2, close to his best.

Well done to all the above for great performances!

Sunday 23rd May Kate Knight completes the Jurassic Coast Challenge

This event has 25km, 50km and 100km distance options. You can probably guess which one Kate participated in.

Kate reports that she is now the very proud owner of a Jurassic Coast Challenge medal after completing the 100km of this challenging event in a time of 31:55:10 in 398th position out of 417 finishers - see this.

To use Kate's words, parts of the course were "very steep and brutal".

Kate is following this up with the London to Brighton next weekend.


Some dates for your diaries

Saturday 10th July Our Parkrun Tourism intended event will be Riddlesdown.
