Results from British Milers Club Meeting – Millfield – Monday 5 May 2014

08 May

Seventeen Club athletes finished in thirteen races at the Millfield British Miler’s Club Meeting held on Monday 5th May 2014 with Dave Taylor, Dave Bedwell and Alison Hurford’s groups well represented. After three days of sunshine the weather broke and the longer distances were raced in wet and windy conditions. It was good to see Mike WILSMORE back in competitive action after a long lay off through injury and a win in 3:53.60 was a good season’s opener. Let’s hope we see more of Mike racing for the club this summer – he has the potential to be a good points scorer in the British Athletics League. The same is true of Tom Merson and Ben Robinson who recorded good times in the Men’s 3,000 metres.

Dan MARSHALL recorded a win in the ‘I’ race clocking 2:30.11 and Aidan OSCROFT continues to impress with his fourth place in 2:39.67 in one of the mixed races for youngsters (Aidan is still only nine).

Charlotte GREEN set a second PB in the week when finishing a close-up fourth in the Women’s A 1,500 metres and apparently could have been quicker had the pacing been more realistic for the potential of the field, nevertheless she produced her usual strong finish and it is surely just a matter of time before she produces a sub-4:30 clocking.

There were some very solid performances from the club’s junior athletes – let’s hope we see them running in League matches as well as British Milers Club races in the future. A full list of positions and times is below:
