Good Afternoon Race Report fans from a very sleepy Bates household. I hope you have managed to enjoy the hot weather, even if it did make for some challenging running conditions.
First of all, I wanted to look back to a result which I managed to miss from last weekend. Maddie Hughes successfully defended her position as European Age Group triathlon champion in Madrid, in a total time of 1.01.30 in a sprint distance run-bike-run event. Well done, Maddie!
Good Evening, Race Report fans, from a sunny spot in the Chilterns. I hope you’ve been enjoying the onset of June as much as we have here in Race Report HQ.
It’s another really interesting week for results, with Harriers competing in a huge variety of events. We’ll kick things off with Richard Slade’s performance in the Iffley Festival of Miles, held yesterday at the track where Roger Bannister famously broke the 4-minute mile in 1954, and our Richard wasn’t too far off that pace, clocking a fantastic time of 4.16 in his event. Well done!
