Max Sets A New Club Record In U13 Boys' Long Jump by Dave Mills
At the Bracknell Open meeting on Saturday 29th May Max Orchard jumped an impressive 4.87m in the U13 long jump breaking the existing Club Record for the event and cementing his No 2 UK ranking!
Earlier last week, on the Monday evening, Max ran a fast 100m at the Blackheath and Bromley Open meeting. His time of 13.60 is very fast for his age group, and a new official PB for Max! Max's time at the Quad Kids meeting in Guildford was even quicker at 13.3 but that result hasn't found its way onto Power of 10 at the time of writing.
Max's performance all round is truly remarkable; not only is he ranked No 2 in the UK for long jump but he is also ranked in the top 5 for 800m, top 15 for 100m and top 21 for 1500m. Awesome Max!
AFD Open Meeting 31st May by Dave Mills
On Monday afternoon 31 May, competing at the Aldershot Farnham and District Open Meeting, Lilah Unwin maintained her consistent run of form with a fast time of 2.19.83 in the 800m.
At the same meeting U11 James Beaty, running in only his second 1500m race, took a full 21 seconds off his previous time recording 5.22.71 for a new PB. An excellent result for someone so young!
Earlier in the day James ran in the 150m sprint, finishing with a creditable time of 24.36 seconds. Well done James!
All of these young athletes are having strong seasons! Well done Max, Lilah and James!

Saturday 10th July our first Parkrun Tourism event (and Couch to 5K Graduation) will be Riddlesdown (on the assumption that the landowners have given permission for it to be staged).
I have received some emails earlier in the week that indicate that there is a good chance that the MABAC league events may recommence in August (Wimbledon). Please support MABAC by registering for the Surrey Slog Half Marathon on 25th July.
Kate Does The Double
After her gargantuan effort in the Jurassic Coast Ultra last weekend this weekend Kate Knight completed the London to Brighton 100Km Ultra. Kate finished in 28:59:05, a new PB for the course by some 2½ hours, despite being diverted in several places including on the last section. Well done Kate there's no stopping you!
