Championships Update


After Sunday’s Larkfield 10k and the Deal Half Marathon the week before, the men’s team has moved up to 5th in the Kent Grand Prix whilst a strong showing from the home side at Deal has seen the ladies’ just drop back to 8th.

In the individual tables, a number of members picked up points at both venues, and Andy Stevens now sits in an excellent 8th place, with Chris Brenchley and Steve King also in the top 25. Chris also opened his v40 account very well, and is the second TRACcie in the top 25, behind Steve. John Cooper and Steve Clarke have both got off the mark in the v50, whilst Terry Brightwell and Bill Wright continue to pick up points in the v60. Sarah Harmes is highest ranked lady in 21st, but Debbie Hatt, Becky Williams and Pam Philpot all picked up points over the last fortnight.

In the club championships, Andy and Sarah still lead the way, having completed the maximum six scoring races, so now will need to better their previous performances to add to their tally. They’re both in good position though, having dropped only 4 and 5 points respectively.

The v50 is the most closely contested category, with John Cooper a single point ahead of Steve Clarke, but the v40 is shaping up as well. Stephen Forshaw has moved to the top of the chart, but has raced once more than both Steve King and Chris Brenchley, who are separated by only three points with two races still to score, with Nick Lever only four points further back. Bill Wright is still picking up points to head the v60. Overall, only three points cover 2nd to 5th.

In the ladies’, Becky Williams’ win keeps the pressure on Gen Holden, Sarah heads Debbie Hatt in the v35 and overall, and Pam Philpot leads the v45 and has moved into 3rd place overall with her fourth scoring run.

Plenty still to play for in the Club Champs as more members start to reach the six races, and both teams are doing really well in the Grand Prix - make sure you get your entry in for the Harvel 5 mile, on Saturday 2nd June. Once again, please let us know if you need a hand with travel, or place a message on the forum, and we’ll see what we can arrange.
