Track 5k results
7 April 2017 - By Marc Underdown
Just back from the track 5k and no better time than the present to post the results. With Bromley 10k on Sunday and many in marathon tapering, it was no surprise that we were light on numbers, but also not a surprise that we were not light on outstanding performances.
The night started with the junior presentations and it was great to have Phil Johnson there to award the trophies, since he has very kindly donated a new trophy for the juniors.
A track 5k still needs helpers and I am very grateful to Roger and Fozzy for timekeeping, Bill for helping lap count, and Heydon taking some great action shots. A big thank you also to Jo and all the parents who came along to support the runners.
There were some great performances from the juniors, who kept all the seniors honest and all had a good finish, which helped them surpass a senior or two!!! Jamie Thrupp was the leading boy showing a good consistent pace, whilst Rebecca Chandler was the leading girl, one of those who put in a fine finish.
In the seniors Trevor judged his effort well, slowly building a lead over his two nearest rivals. Of the rivals it was Mark who got the better of Simon but not before helping Simon get below the magical 20min mark for the first time. Further back it was great to see Danny Connor set a new PB.
In the ladies, Tracey equalled her PB, but performance of the night has to go to one of our newer runners who not only set a massive PB, but also went a broke a club record that has only stood for 20 days – congratulations Angie!
