County Track & Field Championships – May 2022

Considering the hot and humid conditions out on the track on Day 1, 14th May, we had some excellent results.
There were 4 BVH members running in the first race with the following results.
Simon Partridge was 1st overall and 1st M40 in 17.17.4.
Alastair Leckie in his first 5000m on the track was 2nd M40 in 18.02.03.
Matthew Crane also running his first 5000m was 2nd M45 in 20.11.4.
Peter Woods another newbie to the track was 2nd M50 in 20.36.0.
In the second race Laurie Woods, running his first 5000m, was thrown in at the deep end with all the fast boys but it didn’t faze him and he ran really strongly to finish 2nd under 20 in 17.28.5.
Our 2nd claim member, Callum Bowen-jones, had a battle all the way round but came out the strongest on the final lap to win in 15.13.4.
Well done all!
