Kent Relays

Thanet Roadrunners AC made a successful visit to the Kent Relay Championships on Sunday 15th September 2013.  Held at the Sutcliffe Park track in Eltham, the event attracted entries from clubs all over the county and TRAC was represented by both Boys and Girls teams.

Our girls were on track for the very first race of the day, with Rebecca Hales, Amy Piper and Beth Williams lining up for heat 1 of the U13 Girls’ 3x800m Relay.  The trio won their race comfortably in 8:25.6, thereby qualifying for the final later in the afternoon.

The U13 Boys’ 3x800m Relay was run as a straight final and the TRAC team, comprising Oliver Davies, Alex Kavanagh and Henry Swandale finished third, taking the Bronze medals in 8:18.4 behind two teams both representing Blackheath & Bromley. 

Straight after that race was the girls’ final and with the wind gathering strength, Rebecca, Amy and Beth put in a determined performance, clocking 8:33.9, filling the Silver medal position behind a strong Tonbridge AC team.

 

The track season effectively ends next weekend, with some of those same U13s scheduled to take part in the Kent U13 Track & Field Championships at Erith.  Thereafter, it’s Cross Country all the way, with the KCAA League kicking off on Saturday 5th October.
