Middlesex Young Athletics, Vitality Races and Edinburgh Marathon Festival 

A great result in MYAL with Heathside juniors currently in third place, with the next fixture being on home turf as well as a busy bank holiday weekend. This started with the Last Friday of the Month 5K and then heathsiders joining Sir Mo on Monday in the London Vitality 10,000.

25/5/2018 Last Friday of the Month Serpentine 5K
Eight Heathsiders took part in the LFOTM 5k on a steamy Friday. Congratulations to Pete Crockford who was the first V60, and hit a new club V60 record (by over a minute!)

26/5/2018 Middlesex Young Athletics League - Perival 

Simon Baker writes: 'The 2nd MYAL fixture took place at Perivale on another glorious sunny day. However scheduled at the beginning of a bank holiday weekend, mid-exam season and half term many of the teams were depleted. This did not however stop a number of notable performances, PB’s and meeting records by the young Heathsiders. We went one better than the 1st fixture finishing 2nd to ESM with none of the age group teams finishing lower than 3rd while the U13 boys and U17 Girls both won their age groups.

Highlights of the many notable performances were U11B Benji Bediako, repeating his strong performances in the first fixture, winning both his 150m (in a meeting record of 22.5 sec) and the Long Jump as well as finishing 2nd in the 800m. Spike Blake also romped home 1st in the U13B 1500m. The U13B team followed this with victory in the 4x100m to win the age group.

The small U11G team performed admirably finishing 2nd overall with Elkie Baker winning the vortex with a meeting record of 23.03m. The U15G team saw wins for Rose Garrett in the 800m with a new meeting record of 2.24 and Erin Heritage in the shot putt. The U17G in winning overall saw a range of excellent performances with a win for Matilda Heath in the long jump.

With Russell and Rachel away thanks to Ruth for managing the team so well on the day supported by the coaching team and officials.

Overall Heathside remain in 3rd place after two of the four fixtures with 2nd place Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers now only 45 points ahead. The next fixture is on Sunday 17th June at our home track in Finsbury Park.'

27/5/2018 Vitality Westminster Mile
Caroline White reports: ‘A group of us went to run in the Westminster mile on Sunday 27th in Green Park (it's along the last mile of the London marathon course more or less). It was a fun morning, well organised, all standards catered for, fast flat course. Mo was there later in the day.’

27/5/2018 Edinburgh Marathon Festival.
Jim Connell reports: ‘Jim does a marathon and didn’t tell anyone (until after!).’ as he managed to get a late entry to the Edinburgh marathon.’The race is much quicker at the start and I felt good for the first half for sure, going through in just under 1.32 (with a 3.08 target on a positive split strategy). I saw Charlie early, on one of the out and backs, and yelled COYH – he looked strong and was fairly close to the front. The second half of the race is out and back along the coast for miles, it was quite unsupported, generally dull and it is was quite blowy. I could feel myself starting to slow and I went with it limiting it to a gradual fade (can’t fight the fade). Again Charlie passed me coming back up the hill, he must have been at about mile 22 and he looked very strong and he returned the COYH to me, which give me a lift! I got the finish and a decent 3.10.30, and I have to say, to miss my target by only a little, on what I call a “piggy back marathon” (a second marathon you run a month after your “A race”, where you use up all your remaining endurance from your spring training campaign) … I’m happy - for me it’s a great performance. I got a Boston Qualifying time so that’ll do. Charlie also had a fantastic race finishing 17th overall in 2.40 and James Felstead was impressive in 3.37. On the whole, absolutely no complaints about the weather. It is a fast marathon but pretty quiet for a capital city marathon.’ Congratulations Jim on your qualifying time.

28.5.2018 Vitality London 10,000
A good number of you entered the Vitality London 10,000. John Driscoll wrote’ A hot Vitality 10 km from Green Park. Thanks to support from Satu, Jonathon and Jim to name but a few who came down to cheer and bag watch. A special thanks to Jacob who gave us the heads up about the extra places and took the time to enter us.’

Park run results can be found here with notable results for Emilia Vynnycky and Andy Barnes.
