11-year-old Finlay Goodman continued his excellent progress by winning the Year 7 Kent Schools Championship. The 3km race was held at the Royal Military School in Dover.
Finlay’s win was made even more remarkable by a nasty accident on the start line where his foot was spiked. He went on to win the race and then attend the hospital afterwards to get the injured treated.
In warmer climates our Chairman Nick Brown won the MV60 category in the El Palmar 5km, completing the hilly course in an excellent time of 20:35. Helen Brown was 2nd in the FV50 category in 24:56.
Sarah Marzaioli completed her 96th Marathon at the Doughnut Dash at Walton on Thames. Sarah has targeted London as her 100th Marathon and is currently raising money for the RNLI. If you can spare a few pounds towards this great cause and amazing achievement that would be very kind.
On Sunday 5 members completed their England Athletics Run Leadership courses. Darren Barzee, Nadia Winborn, Neil Jeffries, Anthony Gardner and Simon Linklater will all be on the coaching rota in the following months.
