Lorraine Ugen Sets New 100m Club Record

Lorraine Ugen has started the outdoor season in fantastic style by breaking her own 100m club record that she set last year when the senior women claimed the national league title in Bromley. Lorraine who was forced to cut short her indoor season due to injury had a run out over the 100m in Fort Worth, Texas USA where she ran a fast 11.37.

Lorraine was pleased with her run saying afterwards, “I was really happy with the run, I had to take time out from the indoor season after injury to rehab and refocus for the outdoor season. I wanted to get a decent speed session in and kind of see where I was at, and was happy to see that my speed was there post injury. I’m looking forward to moving forward with the outdoor season and working on continuing to stay injury free”.

Young Athletes run well at National Cross Country Champs

A very cold day with a bitter wind had TVH managing to field three scoring teams in the championships. The best result on the day came from the under 13 boys who finished 23rd team out of 56 full teams. The first Valley boy home was Alfie Turner in 112th place out of the 570 finishers. Although he has been unable to compete for most of the season this was by far his best race of the winter. Charlie Rollo also had a great run and was happy with his 130th place. Sol Inglis was also well inside the top half in 151st place. It was also pleasing to see Morris Rock having a great race with over 230 runners behind him. Well done all of you!
