Junior Section Report for June 2021

Attendance on the Monday night sessions have steadily risen during June, with last week seeing 26 Juniors down at the Cricket Club, which is pleasing to see. Hopefully this number will continue to climb as further easing of restrictions take place during July.

17th June 2021

Harriers Handicap

On a dry summer’s evening four of our Juniors ran in this event held at Marquis Drive, along with the seniors, with two of them racing home to take first and second place as follows:

A big well done to Matthew for winning the race and of course to Ben, Jack and Reuben for putting in some fantastic effort and times.

Finlay Summers has been running in the low key un-official Park Run (believed to be the Stafford one) over the last month or so, well done Fin, and keep up the great work!

Junior Section Report for May 2021

May has been a very quiet month for the Juniors in terms of virtual races, in fact, we are not aware of anyone participating in any as such.

The Junior Grand Prix races continue to be available during June, and we would encourage our Juniors to take part in these as they provide some great friendly competition, and we would recommend you give them a try. Please see the website for more details and of course do follow the rules that can also be found on the website. We look forward to seeing how you all get on.

As part of his Duke of Edinburgh’s Scheme, Lucas Willson has continued to help out on Monday night Junior sessions and has shown some excellent coaching skills and is now setting parts of the session. Well done Lucas.

Through April we’ve seen a few of our Juniors competing in the Harriers Grand Prix Virtual Races, as follows:

Race 1, 5K (March 29th – 4th April)

Name
Time
Murphy Hamilton
21:24

Race 2, 1 mile (5th – 11th April 2021)

Name
Time
Murphy Hamilton

Shauna Hamilton
7:32
Finley Summers
7:56

A massive well done to everyone who put in some excellent times!

With the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night sessions now back up and running at the Cricket Club, we have seen some good attendance by the Juniors, eager to get back to training, with the younger ones on a Monday evening and the older ones starting to attend the faster Tuesday speed sessions. The latter has pushed them a little further and helped to improve their running, training with some of the faster seniors.

As part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, Lucas Willson has started to help coaching the younger juniors on the Monday night sessions. Lucas has already proven to be of help with him taking some of the warm-up and cool down stretches.

Junior Section Report for March 2021

March, on the whole, has been a quiet month for our Juniors, however, we are aware of some having continued to participate in some of the virtual races, as follows:

Knighton 5K (11th – 16th March)

Murphy Hamilton put in a great performance, finishing in 2nd place, with a time of 21:38. A massive well done to Murphy, and keep up the fantastic work!

Harriers Grand Prix 8 Mile (15th – 21st March)

Lucas Willson stormed home in first place, well ahead of a field that was dominated by seniors, with a time of 1:04:28. Great running Lucas, well done, and keep raising the bar!

Both Murphy and Lucas are fine examples that show by putting in the hard work and continuing to train, week in week out, does pay off with some excellent race times. Well done guys!

With the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night sessions now starting back up during April and beyond, it will hopefully be good to see some of the Juniors down at the Cricket Club, training together once again.
