Track and Field Under Way For Juniors


The Track & Field season got under way for the Thanet Roadrunners AC juniors last week, with seven club members competing at two local open meetings.  Following a successful Cross Country season, hopefully TRAC will be far more visible on the track this year.  There are lots more fixtures throughout the Summer months - please ask the coaches if you want to know about them.

On Wednesday 11th April 2012, Bobby Harrop and Caine Moir ran at the Invicta East Kent open meeting at Canterbury High School.  Bobby ran 1:39.7 and Caine 1:53.4 in separate 600m races.  In the 1000m event, they ran together, with Bobby finishing in 3:20.0 and Caine 3:29.3.

Two days later, five younger members took part at the first Thanet AC U11 open meeting of the season at the Marlowe Academy.  The programme offered four events for school years 3 and 4 and four for years 5 and 6.  Competitors were automatically entered in the four events, but did not have to compete in them all.  Results were as follows:

Brooke O'Hare

9.1s (50m), 1:29.7 (400m), 1.49m (SLJ), 12.10m (VMH)

Maddie Stirk

9.7s (50m), 1:34.8 (400m), 7.65m (VMH)

Hughie Coleman

11.4s (75m), 1:56.5 (600m), 1.60m (SLJ), 14.84m (VMH)

Jon Hart

12.2s (75m), 2:01.7 (600m), 1.84m (SLJ), 35.69m (VMH)

Rebecca Hales

12.0s (75m), 2:05.8 (600m)

SLJ = Standing Long Jump; VMH = Vortex Mega Howler (This looks like a miniature rugby ball with a tail and makes a whistling noise when thrown through the air.  It is thrown overarm like a cricket ball.)

Well done to all who took part!
