Junior Point to Point, 21 April 2011

Thursday 21st of April saw the last of the winter series of junior club races when the Point to Point handicap races were staged from Neiley. With the late start to the Easter holidays one or two youngsters were missing but there were still some strong fields in all the races, with a number of the youngsters racing for the first time.

Changing from tradition the first races to set off were the under 17 boys and girls which due to the unseasonly hot weather made these a bigger test of endurance than normal. This did not stop the boy’s race turning into a desperate sprint finish over the last 50metres with Aaron Arthur just managing to over hall Robert Hinchliffe within sight of the finish to win the race but Robert had the satisfaction of securing the overall winter Championship. Daniel Ellis who had held the lead all the way until the last straight finished close behind in third.

The girl’s race saw Sophie Spencer run an excellent race. She overtook the early starters and pulled away in win in impressive style, with Ruby Sykes who recorded the fastest time in second, although this was only 5 seconds faster than Sophie which shows how she had improved. Sophie Williams also gave her all and finished 3rd. Sophie Spencer also managed to secure the overall title.

The under 13 girls and boys races also produced some exciting sprint finishes to entertain the large crowd of parents and spectators. In the boys race Joe Williams held the lead as the runners re-entered the field and despite being closed down the by two Lewis’s, Bartholemhew and Byram, plus anxious looks over his shoulder he managed to hold his nerve to win. The race for second place came down to a dash for the line and although Lewis Byram was closing with every stride, Lewis Bartholemhew managed to hold on to the runners up spot. Lewis Byram had done enough however to ensure he was the overall winter champion.

In the under 13 girls it was Lucy Byram who stole the show with a determined run, in the last race her twin sister Erica had stolen the limelight but Lucy made no mistake this time forging ahead at half way and gradually increasing her lead, she not only won the race in the fastest time, but also secured the overall winter championship title. Olivia Sykes split the twins to take second place, with Erica just holding off Daisy-Mae Hinchliffe for 3rd.

The under 11 girls set off next and with 28 entries this was the biggest field of the night, keeping the time keepers and recorders very busy as the handicappers got it right and large numbers finished within seconds of each other. The first back was Fiona Archer who has improved all winter, she moved through the field and managed to hold off the fast finishing Charlotte Eastwood by a matter of yards. Charlotte who had started towards the rear of the field passed a number of athletes after they got back into Neiley field including two debutants, Erin Taffe and Savannah Andrade in the home straight.  Erin managed to stay in front of Savannah to take third. Charlottes run enabled her to pip Libby Shepherd to the winter championship title. Keelan Fitton who is improving with each race and was the last to set off again recorded the fastest time of the night.

The under 11 boy’s race was also very tight with Daniel Tinson, James Burhouse and William Cummins all in with a chance of winning in the last dash to the line. Daniel and James had swapped places several times during the race but it was Daniel who prevailed to take first place with James holding off William who had been getting closer all the time from his start towards the back of the field. Jimmy Burke who is a very talented young athlete recorded the fastest time but could not quite get onto terms with the first three whilst Daniel Howatson produced a fine run to hold of Nicky Farquhar for the overall winter title.

All the young athletes who took part are to be congratulated on the effort they put in and the exciting races they produced. A big thanks to the helpers and officials who assisted in making the event run smoothly, especially the ones who were stood on the points to ensure that we didn’t lose any athletes.
The next event is the Parlaufs with the heats taking place on Tuesday 10th of May when we expect ALL the adult runners in the club to show the same effort and commitment as the juniors and to take part in what is the only club event for everyone from 8 to 10.
