PBs and season's bests at BFTTA Open

Club athletes braved wet and cold conditions to set a host of PBs and season bests at the Be Fit Today Track Academy middle distance open at Dagenham's Jim Peters Arena on Saturday. Dan Peters went close to the two minute barrier to post the fastest 800m time by a club Under 17 man this year and Maddie Barker once again trimmed her PB is the U17 women's age group. Ginte Bailey moved up into the W35 age group to post the second fastest time by a club female in that age group. Findlay McLaren impressed with his new 800m best in the Under 13 boys and sprinter Jude Ogundare surprised with a fast 800m time in the same age group.

In the 1500m races Natalie Sewell ran a season's best in the Under 17 women's event while Owen Fisher's PB was the fastest this year by a club Under 15. Freddie Rowe also improved to set the fastest U13 Boys' 1500m time this season. Rosie Warner (U13G) & James Stewart (SM) also set 1500m season's bests. 6/10/20

Shandell Bronze in British Champs

Shandell Taylor claimed his first senior national medal as he won bronze at the televised British Championships at Manchester on Friday.

Shandell’s third round jump of 7.37m put him in contention for a podium place and after being edged into fourth in round four, he improved to 7.45m in the fifth round which proved to be good enough for national bronze. His leap received compliments from TV commentators Steve Backley and Jess Ennis-Hill’s coach Toni Minichello. 

The podium place confirmed the 20-year-old’s ability to rise to the big occasion as it followed his bronze in last year’s England Athletic Under 23 championships and his break-through victory in the English Schools in a new club record two years ago. 7/9/20

Dave Holland (1943-2020) RIP

We're very sad to report that our long-standing life member Dave Holland, who had chalked up well over 50 years with the club, passed away suddenly on Tuesday 14th July.

Dave was a very active club member in former years, and as a Romford AC member was part of the team who brought that club together with Hornchurch Harriers to form Havering AC in 1968 and he went on to hold several key Committee roles in the club.

He was a sub three hour marathoner and competed in the London event twice. He was also a keen club team member who regularly filled gaps where needed.

He organised the original Havering Half marathon and the club Boxing Day handicap for some years and until recently he attended the track for a training "run" every Wednesday. He was also a regular volunteer at the Raphael Parkrun after he was unable to run himself.

Our thoughts are with Stella and family at this very sad time. RIP Dave 18/07/20

Terry Collins (1953-2020) RIP
