English Schools Track and Field Championships Manchester 10th-11th July - by David Mills

Congratulations to Samuel Stapley who competed for Surrey Schools in the 800m over the weekend. Samuel recorded another PB, finishing 6th in his race and was the quickest Surrey athlete in the Junior Boys 800m.

Unfortunately Lilah Unwin was prevented from running as her year at school were all isolating. It was particularly disappointing for Lilah as had she equalled her 800m PB set in June, she would have been the 4th fastest on the day.

Well done everybody, results are on the senior results page.

Sadly I don't have any details of which RPAC athletes were there or the events they participated in as the results have not yet been published, but I do have some photos of Eloise and Jo taking part.

She is competing in the Yorkshire 100 next weekend!
