The second of three Bristol, Avon and Yate (BAY) Open Meetings was held at the Yate Outdoor Sports Complex on Wednesday 23rd May 2018 in conditions that were significantly warmer than for the previous Open Meeting. The Meeting included the Avon County Championship races for 800 metres for Under-13 and Under-15 Boys and Girls and these were well supported and keenly contested. Steve KERFOOT ran an outstanding race to win the under-15s title in 2:07.93. In the Open Meeting Kurt TAYLOR won the 800 metres ‘A’ race in 1:59.21 as he broke 2 minutes for the first time. Ben ROBINSON was a close second in 1:59.93. Sixteen athletes contested the 3,000 metres with Harry ALLEN a clear winner as he front ran to victory in 8:47.51.
Early problems with the electronic timing means that the 75 metre races and first four 100 metres are manual timing only.
