Old men and ultras

An overdue report with two weeks of races to include going all the way back to May 22 when an intrepid bunch of our veterans made their way to Stevenage to run, jump and throw in the Southern Veterans League, with first places for Ed Garrett, Tony Killilea, Adrian Essex, Jessica Vinluan and our men’s 4 x 400 meter relay team.

Meanwhile, three of our members ran in ultras over the past fortnight with Lenny Martin coming 16th in the London to Brighton 100km on May 27, and Mike Stocks and Rob Shulman doing well in the 87km Durban to Pietermaritzburg Comrades Marathon yesterday (June 4). Meanwhile Simon Hazel ran the 39th Stockholm Marathon in a time of 3:27.18.

Heathside Dom-N8 at Crouch End

A belated round up of Heathside's annual Crouch End takeover where around 80 Heathsiders took to the streets of N8 and came back laden with prizes and PBs galore, most notably Ella Waldman winning the Women's race and both the men and women claiming the team prizes. Elsewhere there was some track action in the Vets League meet at Stevenage, while Joe McK was sent to Coventry for a triathlon and there's a late shout out for a seaside marathon.
