KCAA Track and Field Champs 2012 (13th May 2012)

Location: Julie Rose Stadium, Ashford

Host: KCAA


Three of the Junior boys represented Thanet Roadrunners AC at the Julie Rose Stadium, Ashford, on Saturday 12th May 2012.  Tom Winch, Rob Morris and Bobby Harrop were competing on the first day of the KCAA Main Track & Field Championships.

Tom and Rob both emerged from their respective 1500m races with new Personal Best times, Tom in his first 1500m of the season and Rob knocking almost two seconds off his time at the recent Invicta East Kent Open. 

Rob and Bobby then contested separate heats of the 400m event, and each qualified for the final later in the afternoon.  This was their first experience of running a heat and a final on a track programme, but they managed their nerves well, both finishing with new PBs, just as Tom had several hours earlier.

The TRAC athletes' full performances from Day 1 were as follows:

1500m U15 Boys (final):   Tom Winch 5:21.83 (13th)

1500m U17 Men (heat):   Rob Morris 4:35.41

400m U17 Men (heat):   Bobby Harrop 59.82s*

400m U17 Men (heat):   Rob Morris 57.51s*

400m U17 Men (final):   Rob Morris 57.10s (7th)

400m U17 Men (final):   Bobby Harrop 58.46s (8th)

(* denotes qualification for the final as a fastest loser.)


Sunday 13th May 2012 saw TRAC Juniors in action once again on the second day of the KCAA Main Track & Field Championships.  On a warm afternoon at Ashford's Julie Rose Stadium, Imogen Bushell and Bobby Harrop both contested 800m races - Imogen recording a new Personal Best time and Bobby rounding off a busy weekend following his 400m exertions the previous day.
The Day 2 performances recorded by Thanet Roadrunners AC athletes were:
800m U15 Girls (heat):   Imogen Bushell 2:41.70
800m U17 Men (heat):   Bobby Harrop 2:22.55
Those two-lap races concluded a successful weekend for the club at the annual County Championships, with new Personal Best performances for all four of the U15 and U17 athletes competing.
Along with a number of other Junior members, they will line up once again at the same venue in the Kent Schools' Track & Field Championships on Saturday 16th June 2012.  This is an inter-district competition, with entries made by individual schools.  The closing date for entries is Thursday 17th May 2012 - so TRAC members in school years 7 to 11 should make sure their PE teacher has entered them in the early part of this week! 
Before the schools' competition, the third of Invicta East Kent AC's summer open meetings takes place in Canterbury on Wednesday 6th June 2012.  For details of that and other competitive opportunities, please speak to the coaches at any TRAC training session.
