Junior Roadrunners Rewarded with Kent Selection

Five junior members of Thanet Roadrunners AC have been selected to represent Kent Schools at the forthcomingY7/8 Inter-Counties Cross Country fixture.  County vests are a just reward for their consistent efforts, both in training and at race meetings throughout the winter.

The event, hosted by Essex Schools at Hylands Park, Chelmsford on Saturday 29th March 2014, will see Beth Williams (St Lawrence College) and Rebecca Hales (Ursuline) taking on the strongest Year 7 girls from Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey and Essex over 2500m.  Both girls have enjoyed progressive cross country seasons, building on their silver medal winning performance – along with Amy Piper - in the 3x800m at the Kent Relay Championships on the track in September.

In the corresponding boys’ race, Cameron Macrae and Hughie Coleman (both Dane Court) will run 500m further than the girls, on what looks – on YouTube at least – to be an undulating course, not unlike Swanley Park.  Cameron has been training with TRAC since October and finished fourth in the Kent Schools’ Championships at Wilmington last month.  Hughie, meanwhile, has had a busy winter, ever-present in both the KCAA League and Kent Fitness Leagueseries. 

Alex Kavanagh (St George’s) has been selected for the Y8 boys’ race over 3500m.  Alex, who is undefeated after five legs in this winter’s Kent Fitness League, represented Kent at the SEAA Inter-Counties at Biggleswade in December, and finished 27th in a field of 285 U13 boys in the SEAA Championships at Parliament Hill in January.

For those who would like to go along to support the club’s youngsters when they represent the county, the venue is just off the A12 with CM2 8WQ the postcode for your SatNav.
