Juniors in the Relays


There was a strong turnout from Junior club members at Thanet Roadrunners AC’s home leg of the East Kent Inter-Club Road Relay series on Tuesday 29th May 2012. 

Nine youngsters ran in the main race against their elders, posting some impressive times over the 2.3 mile (3.7KM) course.

The Thanet Roadrunners AC Mens’ “A” team was composed entirely of Junior Boys, with the quartet achieving a combined time of 54:55 for 6th place overall.  Their individual performances (with current track age groups in brackets) were:  Bobby Harrop (U17) 13:18 (first leg); Oliver Cooper (U15) 14:13 (second leg); Caine Moir (U13) 13:35 (third leg); Alex Kavanagh (U13) 13:49 (fourth leg).

The TRAC Mens’ “B” team comprised two Seniors and two Juniors.  Spencer Hoult (Senior) led off with 14:57, followed by Tom Winch (U15) 14:30 (second leg); Alfie Grafton (U15) 14:36 (third leg) and José Martin (Senior) 13:46 (fourth leg) bringing them home in 8th position overall in a time of 57:49.

Tilly Ellis-Jarman (U17) 14:40 (first leg) got the TRAC Ladies “A” team off to a flying start, followed by Emily Bond (U13) 15:17 (second leg) and Michaela Hill (Senior) 14:26 (third leg).  The trio attained an excellent second place overall in 44:23. 

Kealy Goldsmith (U13) 16:22 (first leg) ran for the Thanet Roadrunners AC Ladies “B” team followed by Sarah Watkiss (Senior) 18:20 (second leg) and Becky Williams (Senior) 16:01 (third leg) 50:43 and fifth place overall.

The main race was preceded by 1.25 mile (2KM) race for those Juniors still at primary school.  Hughie Coleman (8:11) was a narrow victor from Jon Hart (8:12), whist Rebecca Hales (8:32) was the first girl and third overall.  With some very similar names amongst the other finishers, I shall update this report once all identities have been confirmed!
