Junior Endurance Updates

Race Reports

It’s time for another update from endurance coach, Bernadette Caygill, on how some of her junior protégés have been doing. Plenty of impressive performances worthy of a mention.

Here goes…..

Dan Richardson won the Under 13 boys 1500m at the NYSD and, in doing so, improved his own club record, running 4:51.1.

Dylan Wilson was 3rd improving his PB to 4:53.6 – a day after breaking the Year 7 boys Darlington Town Sports record!

Another PB for Ashton Harrison in the same NYSD race, 5:21.7, with Louis Brett close behind in 5.23.3.

Harry Wilson just got under the 11min mark for the first time in the 3000m, running 10:59.7.

Libby Hammond also ran in the 1500m (Under 13 girls), running 5:43.6, which is 0.2 seconds slower than her PB but none the less impressive, as she had just raced, and won, the postponed Tees Valley Cross Country (Year 6 girls), the day before.

Alex Boyer was a very close 2nd at the same event, just losing out in what was a very exciting sprint finish.

At last weeks NEYDL, Catherine Roberts ran a great 1500m, winning comfortably with a PB of 4:44.3, which incidentally is also within the English Schools’ qualifying time, which she has also achieved in the 3000m

Well done to everyone on their performances
