Charlotte Arter 2015 24 May 2018

British 10km Champioships

Last Saturday the Highgate Harriers Night of 10,000m PB's included the British Championships, with qualifying times for the European Championships in Berlin, August 2nd to 11th. Top UK class runners taking part in races, had the qualifing standards in mind.

Following her recent good race results, Charlotte Arter continued her success by winning the British Womens 10,000m title, her first British track title, Her time of 32.15.71 was well within the European Championships womens qualifying standard. Charlotte interviewed after the race, said the pace maker went off too fast, only two European runners followed the pace maker. Charlotte stayed with the main group until 5km, then speeded up, solo running the next 5km, taking her 100m clear of the main group, runnig her last 1km faster than the 1st and 2nd placed Europeans in front of her. Charlotte said the loves running in this event, the crowd support was fantastic, I'm really happy.


Team Managers Debbie Bull U20/17 (Men), and Jen Stone (Women). Debbie Bull reported a great start to the 2018 campaign, with many new faces joining forces with the more established members of the team. in Match 1 at Swansea on the 29th April. A lovely sunny morning turned bitterly cold later in day. Time delays to the match timetable, unfortunately cost us team points, as some athletes weren't able to make their events.

However a massive well done to those that stepped up at short notice, to help the team out in the relays races. Well done you did us all proud.

Thanks to all officials and parents who helped us on the day, much appreciated as always.

Our Senior Men BAL team, and Senior Women UKWAL team are the flagship teams in our club. Taking on the best Track & Field athletes and teams in the UK. Competition is of the highest standard in many events. Thus points are hard won. 

Cardiff Senior Men's team has returned to the Premier League after being relegated in 2014. The event was held in Leigh west of Greater Manchester, yet host club is from Sheffield. The date clashed with BUCS and a Welsh Championship 5km road race in Cardiff. Thus a weakened team went to Leigh fearing the worse. Other clubs were affected by BUCS resulting in Cardiff finishing in 3rd place, we would do well in getting the same result in Cardiff next month.

Team members on the track scored 176pts while on the field 104pts were scored. Three team members won first place. Joe Reid 800m (A) 1.52.45, Brett Morse Discus Throw (A) 58.62. Chinua Ebereonwu High Jump (B) 1.85. Sam Blake was 2nd in (B) 800m 1.52.32. Curtis Matthews supported Brett in field events 1st in (B) Discus Throw 44.31.
