Connie Henry and her Track Academy put on another successful event at the annual Track Academy Sprint Challenge. There was a great community atmosphere at the Willesden track with many PBs and young athletes excelling.
With many of our young athletes on county duty, TVH still had a good turnout of 14 athletes at a very windy Finsbury Park.
It was a windy and overcast day for the South of England Masters Championships at Shuttleworth Park, Biggleswade on Saturday 12thDecember. This is a lovely park course, with one moderate hill, and firm going all the way around. Fortunately the forecast rain stayed off most of the day, but it was cool waiting around for the starts. Fortunately there was only one short leg where the wind made for hard going, parallel to the grass aerodrome, otherwise it was not a problem.

The outstanding performance in the Southern Inter-Counties Championships was TVH having three scorers in the bronze-winning county team. With India Weir, 12th and Kosana, 13th both getting near to their best form it was perhaps Alice Harray’s best-ever performance in 21st place which helped Middlesex to medals. It was a good indicator of their achievement when they helped to push Surrey down to 9th place. The Valley also had two other members in this team. Olivia Olsher also ran well to finish 41st and surprisingly beat Verity Walker who finished 44th.
