PB’s all the way for the Harriers at London Marathon – Wins for Tim and Joe

2016 London Marathon

Once again, the London Marathon rolls round, witnessing this year a phenomenal performance by the winner Eluid Kipchoge who fell shy of a new world record by 8 seconds winning in 2hr 3.05. The race also featured two British runners – Derek and Callum Hawkins – achieving the Olympic qualifying time with a couple of minutes to spare.

 Results can be found HERE

Chris Davies was the first Blackburn Harrier home in this years race. He had run 2.49.41 in 2015 and was setting his sights on another PB and he came up with it, running the perfect race – 83.29 for the first Half and 83.36 for the second which gave him 2hr 46.55 – a new PB by nearly three minutes and this is how he felt his Race went “I was really pleased with the result that I achieved (2:46:55). Four weeks ago I wasn’t sure if I’d even be running the Marathon after picking up a couple of niggles and having to start the race with one of them. I wasn’t really sure how I would fair. My aim was for a 2:45 time so in the end I can’t grumble and on the plus side if I could go into my next marathon totally on song then their is no reason why I can’t hit the target that I want. That said at the half marathon point I was on target and coasting, I was feeling very comfortable at that point. I got to the 18 mile point and for the second year running my calf’s started to get sore. I still managed to keep the pace I had been running up to the 25 mile mark which was tough but in the end with just over a mile to go every muscle was starting to tighten and get sore and it was just a case of knuckling down and just get to the finish line as quick as I could. Really pleased though, the support was great from the Blackburn Harriers and Road Runners who were scattered all over the course. The 14 mile mark I will never forget. The support running along that stretch of road with emotional to say the least. The support from everyone that was their was just incredible.Thanks for all the support of everyone, all the kind words on Facebook after the race, the coaches at the club on their guidance and good advice running up to the race. All of it means a lot and hopefully I can go one better at next years London Marathon and get what I’m after. Thank you Everyone”.

13051781_10154164082789507_5210415940147094108_nConrad McKee was the next Harrier home in his first ever Marathon of 2hr 50.34 at the ripe old age of 42yrs and this is what he had to say about his experience on the day I knew at mile 4/5 it was gonna be a tough race. I figured I was gonna run out of steam at the end because I was very tired. I decided to put some quick miles in early and then just hold on at the end. I had had enough at mile 23 and then I heard Richard Fogarty shout at me and I dug in. It really helped. Finished with a decent time and at the end I said I was done with marathon running. Think I might just enter 2017 and see what happens. Thanks to everyone who has helped me over the last few months. Couldn’t have done this without you”.

Rachel Wood ran her second ever Marathon at London, her first attempt was also at London in 2015 when she recorded an excellent time of 3hr 03.07. This year she was determined to break three hours and she did just that finishing in 2hr 59.02, setting a new PB and becoming only the second woman ever to have gone under three hours for the Club.

Sean Proctor was looking for a sub 3 hour marathon but things didn’t quite work out for him on the day finishing in 3hr 08.52. There is never any guarantees about the Marathon and sometimes it just doesn’t work out for you and you live to fight another day.

V45 Paul Slone had a massive new PB in only his second marathon in four years, cutting over half an hour off the time to finish with 3hr 22.42 and telling the Club  This was my second attempt at marathon distance. The first being 2012 when I did 3.55.02. Trained totally on my own from a marathon programme. Started training for this in August almost from scratch again. It proves joining Harriers and taking part in track sessions, hill sprints, coordination runs all work for increasing speed and fitness. Combined with invaluable help with the vast experience from the coaches and other athletes can and do make you into a better runner. So 4 years on I knocked off around 32 minutes for a pb of 3.22.42. Pleased with that as I was aiming for below 3.30″……”Thought the weather conditions were perfect for us northern athletes. It was just like a standard day up here!!

13047865_10209459950155108_7361649182228845047_oKaylie Panaro was over the moon with her run setting a new PB by 6 minutes to set a new personal best of 3hr 38.43. Kaylie ran her first ever marathon in 2013 (4hr 07.01). In 2014 she reduced it to 3hr 55.27 and in 2015 she cut another chunk off to set a new PB of 3hr 44.54. Afterwards Kaylie spoke to the Club telling us “I’m over the moon with how today’s race went, after Berlin Marathon in September I didn’t think I’d do another but with a good for age place for London it would be daft not too. Also my fiancé, Robert, got in on the ballot so there was no way I was watching him run if I could be running myself!! After this weeks Manchester marathon debacle my previous PB (3:42) has gone and so that instantly became my target for today’s race. I felt like I might have gone out a little bit too quick and was waiting to fall apart but I managed to hold it together and smash my PB! 3:38! Now which marathon should I do next…”

Not far behind Kaylie came V40 Allan Hartley who finished in a time of 3hr 41.38 and commented “I set off nice and easy and felt ok . I was running around 7 minute pace , i got to half way in 1.34 . And from then on l started to struggle , so i slowed the pace a bit to make it a bit easier , and when i got to 18 mile i was suffering . Ended up with finishing in 3hr 41mins. And well done to all the Blackburn Harriers that ran”.

And another V40 Danny Teare who was running his second marathon and attempting to dip under the 4 hour mark, just missed out as he came home in 4hr 05.40. Looking back over his preparation and how the race went on the day, Danny told us that he “Was relishing having a second go at the VLM and feeling good that my training would reward me with the sub 4hr I was targeting. Everything was set up for me. 6 months training, 4 x 20m runs and the Darwen half under my belt….. but it wasn’t to be and 4.05 was the end result. I have come to terms with it and could point to a couple of factors such as:

A. Not having enough breakfast (NOT like me!)

B. Being bizarrely allocated to the last pen #9 with the 5hr 30m pacer and the fancy dressers!! I had major traffic to halfway and could not hit a steady pace. Next time, I will have to aggressively overstate my target time like most others appear to do!

Anyway, rant over!! It was great to bump into Alan Hartley at the bag drop and talk through a few race pointers. I also managed to see Chris Davies motoring towards me around the 21m mark, just as I had passed 14m! I gave him a shout but he looked ‘in the zone’!! Great support from the BBH and Road Runner travelling crowd. Shell, Jamie and Rory were very vocal at 13m and 22m and very much appreciated. The Sharps were at 14 and 21 – but 21 was a zoned blur and I wasnt paying much attention to anything external! I also shamelessly canvassed some of my homeland Manx crowd support, sporting the 3 legs front and back. It all helped make a fantastic day… and may be tempted when the ballot opens next week!!

Also having a fine run was Joanne Nelson (V40) who will be running for the Harriers in the Northern T & F League this year who set a new PB coming home in 2hr 54.18 and 5th woman in her age group overall.  Joanne commented after the Race I enjoyed London marathon this year. I wasn’t too sure how I was going to get on; as I had missed a few long runs due to slight niggles which resulted in only completing 1 x 20 mile run. Throughout the race it was quite windy with sun, cloud and a tad of sleet to accompany it. My gloves were on, off, on, off throughout. On the run down Birdcage Walk I knew I was close to a pb… so I had to sprint. If you’ve seen me on the track you know that’s not a strong point of mine. End result was a pb by a whole 12 seconds…. Thanks to the coaches for you continuos support, particularly George Woodburn for your guidance, advice and expertise…. couldn’t do it without you”. Joanne also took bragging rights over partner Paul Brindle who finished in a time of 2hr 57.22 which was a new PB for him in only his second ever marathon, the first being 3hr.00.21. Paul had this to say about his run London is an amazing experience and every runner should try this one year. The one big thing I learnt from London and only my second marathon. You can’t wing 26.2 mile, you’ve got to put the miles in, in training. I sadly lacked long runs over 15 mile which resulted in me tiring in the last 5.2 mile. I did find the resolve to keep pushing on and achieve a sub 3hr result which I’m very happy with. Running is a learning curve and I learnt a big lesson this weekend”

Liz Greenwood, Matt Ramsden and Amy Davies were all selected from the Harriers to run for the North West Region in this years London Mini-Marathon to continue the trend of the Harriers having young athletes selected to run in this event each year.

Liz had a cracking run and was first counter for the North West, reflecting her good form. After the Race, Liz spoke to the Club about her weekend and said I had a great weekend in London representing the north west at the London mini marathon. I was really pleased with how the race went, despite the tough start and was happy to be the first North west counter”.

Matt who has had a really good cross country season was selected to run in his first London Mini-Marathon and said “It was a pleasure to be chosen to represent the north west in the London mini marathon.

Amy, who like Matt, has had an excellent cross country season was also selected for the North West Team and said this about her experience  It was an honour to be picked for the north west team and a very good weekend but the start was really tight and hard to get a good position in but at the end of the day I got a pb and a good position”.

Tim Raynes won his third Road Race of the year recently at The Lancaster Roses 5k in a time of 15.43, a win which was the result of a last minute decision to have a run. RACE RESULTS. Tim commented “I was already due to be up in Lancaster during the day, and noticed there was a 5k race (on the same flat course as the 5k summer series) on in the evening so decided to have a run. With conditions fairly windy, I was pleased to have a solid run and get the win”.

Meanwhile Joe Monk who has been out of action due to injury is now getting back up to full speed with training and tested himself out at the Stretford Park Run which proved that he is now back to good fitness.

YDL First Fixture with plenty of PB’s for Harriers youngsters & Zac wins at Watford.

 YDL – Lower Age Group – Fixture 1

Although finishing in last place at the first meeting, great credit goes to the Harriers youngsters at this first fixture. The Team were missing a number of regular athletes  – three of them selected to run in the London Mini-Marathon with injury, and holidays  –  coupled with so many new athletes in first time competition, meant they were up against it from the start, but they did themselves proud including all the newcomers, some of whom had just moved up from the Clubs Sportshall Group including :

Caiden Hesketh – Libby Ansbro – Tom Booth – Khalil Dalal – Ellie Brotherton-Masson – Ethan Joyce – Joshua Jones, Jayden Brammer  and Joseph Joyce. Others were doing the events for the first time ever in League competition so on the day picking up up eight wins, seven second places and 8 third places represented a great reward for these athletes.

Full Results HERE

Among the really good performances that a number of the athletes put in, top of the tree was the continued development of U15 Hammer Thrower – Charlotte Williams, who won her event with a new PB of 54.39m, leaving her still undefeated in 2016 and still at number one in the National Rankings. She also took 2nd spot in the ‘A’ Discus (20.73m).

IMG_0262

But Charlie wasn’t the only PB performer on the day. Christie Sturgess gained a 2nd place in the U13’s 75m Non-Scoring Race and a new PB of 11.1 and went on to gain a 2nd place in the 70mH ‘b’ race with a time of 12.9. U15 Harry Jackson cut nearly half a second of his time for a new PB of 16.0 in the U15 100m ‘A’ Race whilst U13 Ethan Barbarewicz followed suit in the ‘B’ 100m with a new PB of 15.6. U15 Leon Thomas set a new PB in the 200m ‘A’ (30.6) whilst U13 Harvey Ashworth took 9 seconds of his previous best for a new PB of 2.32.2 in the 800m ‘A’ race with Ethan Barbarewicz knocking his time down by seconds for a new PB of 2.46.8.

Another massive PB for Eleesha Charnley in the U13 800m ‘A’ race finishing 3rd in 2.34.7, some 9 seconds faster than her previous best and she was backed up in the ‘B’ race by Eleanor Allsop who took 2nd place in 2.47.7 in her first ever trip over the distance. Leah Hoole, another one of the rising U13 youngsters ran 2.43.6 in the non-scoring race.

U13 Charlotte Corrigan is going very well which was reflected in her 3rd placed 4.12.00 in the ‘A’ 1200m, a new PB by over 3 seconds. Equally impressive was Hollie Cubbons win in the U13 ‘B’ 1200m with a time of 4.15.7, the first time she has raced the distance. There a good number of other athletes who were tacking events for the first time and Kyle Taylor-Pomfret was one of them in the U13 1500m finishing 3rd in 5.37.0. When Kyle threw 22.15m in the Javelin he added well over three metres to his previous best distance and set a new PB  placing 2nd in the ‘A’ event.

Myah Booth (U13) had an impressive day winning the 70mH ‘A’ race in 12.4, the Shot Putt ‘A’ with a throw of 8.82m and placed 2nd in the Javelin with a throw of 19.48m. U13 Edward Lee ran his first ever T & F meeting – usually preferring cross country – running a solid 16.9 in the 75mHurdles for 4th place. Another first time youngster in League competition U13 Jayden Brammer had a great start winning the ‘B’ race in 16.5.

U15 Solomon Brown set a big, big new PB in the 80mH cutting a whopping 2 seconds off his previous best when he placed 2nd in a time of 13.6 and was supported by Harry Jackson in the ‘B’ race in 3rd spot (17.2). Solomon was just a few cms off his previous best in the Long Jump too, clearing 4.17m. Emily Raine (U15) added 5cms to her High Jump previous best height to set a new PB of 1.30m, ran 13.8 in the 100m and cleared 4.01m in the Long Jump. There was a big new PB for Leah Hoole in the U13 Long Jump by 20cms, setting a new distance of 3.41m. New member and U15 Cameron Harris set a new PB in the ‘A’ Shot putt with 7.82m (6th), then came 3rd in the Discus ‘A’ with 19.85m and gained another 3rd place in the Javelin ‘A’ with 29.77m which represented a really good first outing for the Club.

U15 Eloise Littlefair won the U15 Shot Putt clearing 10.80m in distance and took a 3rd spot in the Javelin ‘A’ with 24.45m. U15 Abigail Brown was competing for the first time and finished 5th in the Shot Putt ‘B’ with 6.15m, 5th in the Javelin ‘B’ with 13.17m and rounded the day off with a fine win in the Discus ‘B’ reaching 16.21m. There was another PB, this time on the Shot Putt for Chloe Jameson (U13) where she finished in 5th spot (4.81m) an improvement of half a metre. U13 Kieran Carroll added three and half metres to his Javelin for a new PB when he won the ‘B’ event with a throw of 2013 and then went on to a throw of 5.38, in the Shot Putt for 4th place.

All in all this was a pretty strong performance by these youngsters and will undoubtedly stand them in good stead. When the other athletes come back to the squad the Team will be strengthened and hopefully they can go on to better things during the season.

Comments Off on Olympic ambition with Alison

Olympic ambition with Alison

Blackburn Harrier Alison Leonard has set her sights on qualifying for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. Her whole focus and determination is on this target.

Alison currently places 2nd in the 1500m National Rankings with 4.10.77 and won a Silver Medal in the 1500m Indoor Championships back in February with a time which won her qualification to the World Indoor Championships in Oregon.

In her specialist distance of 800m – a distance she hasn’t competed in so far this year – she was 5th overall in the 2015 National Rankings and won a Bronze Medal in the British Championships that year too, and has a PB of 2.00.08.

P1000537

As a Junior – who joined the Club as a 14yr old – she competed for Blackburn Harriers in the Young Athletes League and then the Northern League as well as contesting County and Regional Championships, compiling also a pretty impressive record which included at Domestic and International level :

2005 – 3rd AAA U17 Championships 800m
2006 – 1st ESAA Championships 800m, 1st AAA U17 Championships, 3rd AAA Indoor U17 Championships 800m, 3rd England Athletics U20 Open Championships 800m, 3rd AAA U20 Championships 800m
2007 – 3rd England Athletics U20 Championships 800m
2008 – 1st England Athletics U20 Open Championships 800m
2009 – 1st England U20 Championships 800m

2007 – 2nd World Youth Championships 800m
2008 – 4th World Junior Championships 800m
2009 – 4th European Junior Championships 800m

Now Alison is in hard training as part of the build up to Rio qualification and has been in Font Romeu for the last couple of weeks. This is the type of training and dedication that all athletes have to take on board if they are to make it at International and World level in the sport.

Speaking to the Club about her current training Alison told us that I’ve now been in Font Romeu for nearly two weeks and I feel like I’m settling back into hard training. We woke up to snow a couple of times in the first week, but because it’s generally sunny during the day here it had mostly melted by the end of the day so luckily (or unluckily if you’re tired!) training wasn’t really affected. I’ve been doing lots of runs in the forests and round the lake in the valley; my legs don’t like the hills that much as anyone who has seen me try and do the Saucer during cross country knows, but they’re good for me and the views on the runs go some way to make up for the pain! I’ve also been doing lots of track sessions; the track is 1750m above sea level so I prefer the short sessions (as usual!) because they aren’t as affected by altitude. I’ll be racing soon after I get back to the UK in May so this is my last big training block before track season; I’m being sustained by lots of naps and lots of French bread at the moment. tiredness catches up with you very quickly on camp, especially at altitude, so aside from training I spend most of the time recovering and getting ready for the next training session, although we managed to visit the local animal park on our rest day last week. I’ve just over three weeks to go on this camp, it sound like ages now but I know it will go by all at once; I love it up here in the Pyrenees but I’ll be glad to be home after such a long time away. Best wishes to everyone at Harriers and hopefully I’ll see you at Witton over the summer”.

Also competing at Loughborough was U17 Jacob Roberts – currently Number 2 in the National Rankings – who has competed six times so far this season, winning the first five in a row and then taking a Silver Medal at the Loughborough meeting with a throw of 63.59m. Jacob commented after the event the “weather and atmosphere was great, although circle had just been polished and it was like grease lightening ( to fast) ,managed to be consistent in my throwing. I would have liked to have thrown further but up against good athletes, good to come home with a silver medal for Blackburn Harriers in another open meeting down south. I would like to congratulate Charlotte who won Gold in under 15 she did well again and thanks to our coach Mick for advice and support”.

 A big thank you to the Officials who are the real unsung heroes of these events. Without them, there would be no fixtures at all. They give their time voluntarily and are invaluable. Long time Senior Officials of the sport who turned out yet again at these Championships – Norman Mitchell, Stan Taylor, Margaret Crompton, John Proctor, Paul Yates and Andy Parker – continue to provide the necessary support to allow these events to go ahead as do the officials from Blackburn Harriers. However, they can’t continue forever and the sport needs new volunteers to take on these roles.
