Toth takes silver in Northern Championship

Jimmy Burke takes first place in the MCain Cross Country seriesOver the weekend some Holmfirth’s most talented young athletes were in action in top quality events at opposite ends of the country.

 

Taking place on both Saturday and Sunday in Sheffield the Northern Athletics indoor championships included 3 of Holmfirth’s most talented youngsters. Jordan Toth, competing in the 60m in the U20 age group smashed his PB in the final on the 60m sprint. Having run 7.08 seconds to win his heat and 7.04 to finish 2nd in his semi final Jordan ran 7.03 seconds in the final improving on his personal best time of 7.33, set in 2009 and finished in Silver medal position an excellent result.

 

Aaron Kettlewell who earlier in the week had jumped a personal best distance of 5m21 in the Indoor meeting in Wakefield was disappointed to with his best jump of 5m 6cm. Even so this was good enough for 7th position out of a final field of 15. Max Kaye competed well on Sunday in Sheffield running in the U20 men’s 1500m final. Max finished in 4th place in a time of 4:10.

 

Meanwhile in Cardiff two of Holmfirth’s most promising cross country runners were competing in the 2nd event of the McCain Cross country series. This 4 race series culminates on March 5th in Birmingham with the 3rd event taking place on Saturday 22nd January in Belfast. Both boys improved on their performances in the 1st race of the series. Jimmy Burke who, suffering from a cold had finished 20th then, lead the field in Cardiff from the gun and won the race in 7:21 with an 8 second margin on the second place runner from Cornwall. In the U13 boys race, Lewis Byram eager to run well after having missed the Yorkshire Championship the previous weekend, recovering from ‘flu, showed his was on the road to recovery, stayed with the leaders for most of the race and finished a pleasing 5th, an improvement of one place on his race in Liverpool.
