Report from Andy Tuttle:
Joshua Hatton broke the Under 13 Boys 1000m club record when he finished in 3rd place in 3min11.0 at the Berkshire championships held at Bracknell on the evening of 12th July. Watching on was the previous record holder, George Ferguson. George stayed focused on his task in hand, running his first 3000m track race. He took to the longer distance in style, clocking a time just two seconds over the 10 min barrier, this earned him 4th place in the under 15 Boys. Izzy Fry added the Under 20 Berkshire 3000m Championship record to her 1500m record she claimed back in May, Izzy’s time of 10min 07.0 sliced 7 seconds off the previous record set by Philippa Bowden. Wayne Lillis started the 3000m steeplechase with Steve Elsmere as company, but after a few laps Steve had to pull out with tight calf muscles, Wayne went on to win in 10:43.4. Under 15 Luci Robertson had been longing to move up to the 3000m, her time was only just outside 12 mins.
