State 3K champs 10th Nov. SOPAC

Ten Juniors entered, and 8 juniors showed up and ran in the state 3K championships on Sat. 10th Nov. at SOPAC. Earlier in the day there were 'supporting events' and Bathany Halmy (17) ran 2:18:95 in the 800m. Tessa Constantine (13) and Joe Burgess (16) also ran the 800m and both ran PBs - 2:28 and 2:00:24 respectively. Well done! We sat in bay 9 lower seats - which is now 'our spot'. Tessa stayed on and supported the 3K runners, which was lovely! In the men's H race Ben Jagger (14) ran a 30 second PB with 10:32 - his mum's roars could be heard for miles around. Declan King-Smith (13) ran a PB with 11:58. In the G race, Laclan Cooper (13) won spectacularly in 9:52 and Tom Davies (11) ran 10:37 - he is a rising star! In the F race, returning from injury, Josh Phillips (13) ran a very respectable 9:57. In the E race Adam Halmy (15) ran the fastest junior time of the night with 9:39. I ran in the women's C race (as usual my result is unavailable) - it was under 12:30 anyway. Amelia Gorman (16) ran 11:16 in the women's B race, and finally, Hannah Gibson (16) ran 10:07 in the women's A race. We apologise that Tony did not get a usable photo of Amelia or Adam - they were all too dark or blurred :(

Ben determined. He ran a 30 second PB!

Tom Davies is just 11 years old and ran 10:37, beating many 2,3,4 and 5 times his age.

OK, so, this is how hard you need to work to win the race and get a PB of 9:52 at age 13!
