Lilah at the Blackheath and Bromley September Open Series,  Monday night:

Another PB for U15 Lilah Unwin at the Blackheath and Bromley September Open Series on Monday 14 September,  this time in the 600m. Lilah's time of 1.38.76 was exceptional and took some 8 seconds off the club record! It also sees Lilah currently top the UK rankings for U15G'S 600m.

It was a good night too for RPAC U15 sprinters. In the boys 200m, George Evered won his race in a speedy 26.12, a new PB for George! Eva Peters doubled up with a 75m race followed  by a 200m and ran a new PB in the 75m with a time of 10.87. Eva just missed out on her PB in the 200.

George at the Blackheath and Bromley Open:

After some outstanding late summer 800m races,  U17 Oscar Curry continued his fine form on the track with two more impressive runs. This time a  first outing in a 3000m at the Harrow AC 3000m race night on Thursday 10 September, and then in the 1500m at the South London Open on Saturday. 

Staying with the pace throughout the 7 1/2 laps in the 3000m, Oscar clocked an impressive 9.37.52. A time that ranks in the top 50 UK U17m.

An exciting race in the 1500m on Saturday saw Oscar record another big PB (18 seconds quicker than his best last year) and with 4.15.92 he moves into 4th place in the club records (one place behind Alistair Moses from1994!).

Well done Oscar!

Saturday  22 February

With the amount of rain over the past week, it was a welcome change for two of our talented U15G'S  who made the long trip to the Lee Valley Indoor Athletics  Arena to compete in the 800m.

A trip well worth making as both girls turned on the power to record new PB's. For Lilah, her second 800m PB of the year, and for Shakila a PB in her first official 800m race of the year. Not bad for February!

With most of this summer's track and field season lost to the pandemic, U15 Lilah Unwin has managed to get her entries in quick with a few meetings beginning to pop up. With numbers restricted, they fill up fast! 

Starting with her first competitive 300m race at the Blackheath and Bromley Open, including the Dina Asher-Smith150m Invitational on Saturday 22 August, Lilah won her race in 44.87. A time that sees her placed 4th fastest U15 girl in the club's 300m records.

Moving up to her preferred distance of 800m a few days later, Lilah recorded a new PB, despite the torrential rain, competing at the first Harrow AC 800m and 1500m race night.

Racing in much better conditions last Sunday in Loughborough, Lilah had a big PB in the 800m with a fast time of 2.25.79.

 

U17 Oscar Curry entered the Herne Hill Harriers 800m / 3000m evening last week and won his 800m race with a big PB, taking his time down to 2.06.81. Oscar will take on his first 3000m track race at Harrow AC this coming Thursday evening.

 

In the U13 800m at last Saturday's South London Athletics Network Open held in Tooting, Max Orchard ran a mature race to finish 1st in a very impressive time of 2.22.50  -  a massive PB. Max stayed on at the meeting to notch a quick time of 29.70 in his first competitive 200m track outing.

 

Well done to all three on recording big PBs despite having had to wait until the end of summer for their  first competitions.

The last of this season's four Surrey League XC matches saw the boys in action at Lloyd Park, Croydon and the girls in Richmond Park. 

Strong running from both teams ensured it was a good season's end for our U13 boys and U13 girls.

Whilst taking 4th place on the day, our U13 boys secured 3rd place for the season (16 clubs), overtaking  Belgrave Harriers in the League ranking and beaten only by Herne Hill Harriers and Epsom and Ewell. Max Orchard,  Will John-Cox and Sam Rolaston worked off each other throughout the race to finish grouped close together, separated by only 7 seconds. Samuel Stapley missed the match through injury but has played a big part in the season's success.

Our U13 girls finished the day in 6th place and this secured them 6th place in the League for the season. Shakila Keable led the way with a fine 4th place finish with Alessia Turner in 18th place our next runner home. There was excellent support from Ella Scrase,  Maisie Kaye,  Charlotte Pelekani and Sophia Bryant.

Later that night the teams joined the Reigate Ladies XC team for the traditional end of Surrey XC League season meal, this year at Nandos.
