The veteran races, which followed, produced some impressive results. The women’s four-mile contest was conclusively won by Julie Briggs of Arena 80, well ahead of the chasing pack, but that pack included Harriers, Deborah Cawdery and Sharon Elder, who took third (Bronze) and fourth places respectively. They were backed up by Gill Lister in twelfth place, giving the team a score of nineteen points, the same as Steyning A.C. However, as Steyning’s third finisher was ahead of our third woman, they took the Gold, leaving the Worthing team to collect silver medals, which they well deserved. It was all very close. read more…
2011 sees the inaugural year for the ‘Southern Athletics Joint Mens and Womens League’.
Worthing Harriers have been drawn in Division 1, and we look forward to an exciting upcoming track season for our senior track teams.
Fixture dates can be found on the 2011 races and events calendar.
Harriers again scored maximum points in a wet and windy Plumpton Fun Run.
In the Junior Race, Ollie Graveson and Jack Johnson were first and second with Millie Williams first home in the Junior Girls, special mention for little Carmelle Harvey wearing her harriers vest for the first time!
Pete Lay continued his good form being the first Harrier home in 7th place, with the trio of Steve Powell, Jon Austin and Andy Nisbet having a good battle to finish in 10th, 11th and 12th respectively.
In the Womens results, young Joshepine Sunderland continues her improvement coming home in third place and first lady Harrier, closely followed by the strong running Sharon Elder and Deborah Cawdery.
Initial calculations indicate maximum points in both the men and ladies results, plus maximum participation points, continuing our strong start to the 2011 season.
The Harriers were in action again on Saturday, 15th January, but this time, at Bexhill in the Sussex Cross Country League fixture on a blustery, cold and very muddy course. Many of the usual suspects were there, proving that their exploits of the previous weekend, were not “flashes in the pan”.
A refreshed Georgina Searle (7th) just pipped Tara Bage (8th) in the Under 13 Girls race, with Amy Harris (13th) edging Emma Spoor and Chloe Rogers. The team registered a third place and now sits second in the League Table.
Best of luck to all Harriers heading to Lee Valley for this weekends championships!
