National Cross Country Championship - 25th February

Ipswich Harriers athletes had an enjoyable day out at the National Cross Country Championship at Wollaton Park, Nottingham, on Saturday. There was plenty of mud and water to wade through making for quite an energy sapping course. There were notable performances from John Millar who had a strong run in the junior men's race to place 11th and Nathan Goddard who finished 18th in U15 boys. The U15 girls team just missed out on the medal finishing in 4th place overall and the U13 boys also put on a good show finishing a creditable 6th place with their first four scorers.

SEAA Championships, Parliament Hill, London - 28th January

Ipswich Harriers athletes and supporters had a nice day out in London on Saturday at the South of England Cross Country Championships held at Parliament Hill Fields. Athletes were treated to the traditional tough hilly London course although it wasnÕt as muddy as usual so the going was good. There were impressive top 20 finishes from Nathan Goddard (12th U15B), Alex Lawrence (13th U20M) and Tom Adams (14th U17M). There were also notable performances from Adel Hamed (21st U17M), Tilly Aldis (23rd U13G), Holly Fisher (24th U15G), Freddie Adams (24th U13B) and Abigail Rose (25th U20W). The best team result went to the U17M who narrowly missed out on the medals finishing 4th. Well done to all competitors and thanks to SEAA and all the helpers on the day for organising a great day's racing.

National Cross Country Championship, Donington Park - 27th February

We enjoyed another great day out at a major championship on Saturday, this time for the National Cross Country Championships at Donington Park. There was plenty of mud and hills to play with and the rather soft ground made for quite an energy sapping course.
The U13 girls team were in fine form again this time coming away with team silver medals. Sasha Tydeman was first home of the girls in an excellent 7th place closely followed home by Holly Fisher in 10th and Tilly Aldis in 17th. The trio were joined on the podium by Eve McCallum who came home in 66th. Also running for the U13 girls was Mimi Salsby in 89th place.
There were also notable performances from John Millar who had a strong run in his first year in the junior men's race to place 18th, Josh Hulse who finished 37th in U15 boys and Thomas Adams was 38th in U17 men's race.

Photos from some of the races can be found in the photo gallery. Thanks to Chris and Kevin for their contributions.

South of England Cross Country Championships, Parliament Hill Fields - 30th January

Ipswich Harriers athletes and supporters had a nice day out in London on Saturday at the South of England Cross Country Championships held at Parliament Hill Fields. Athletes were treated to a traditional tough course of hills and lots of mud although this didn't deter the U13 girls team of Holly Fisher, Sasha Tydeman, April Hill and Tilly Aldis as they came away with the team gold medals and a nice trophy. The quartet were lead home by Holly in 5th with Sasha hot on her heels in 6th and April not far behind in 9th to put the team in a strong position with Tilly sealing top spot for the girls.
There were also notable performances from Jack Weaver who was 19th in the U13 boys race, John Millar placing 20th in the U20 men's and Thomas Adams who was 22nd in U17 men's race.
Well done to all competitors and thanks to SEAA and all the helpers on the day for organising a great day's racing.

Suffolk County XC Championships, Heveningham Hall - 10th January

We had an enjoyable day out in the scenic surroundings of Heveningham Park at the Suffolk County Cross Country Championshipa on Sunday. It was rather wet underfoot but the sun shone on some excellent racing. The Suffolk County Athletics Association had set a good challenging course with a little sting in the tale by way of an up hill finish.
We came away with 11 individual and 4 team medals in the 8 categories we contested. Individual winners were April Hill (U13G), Thomas Adams (U17M) and John Millar (U20M). The strong U13 girls squad dominated their event filling the first six places with April Hill leading them home closely followed by team mates Holly Fisher and Sasha Tydeman to claim the team trophy.
The U15 boys and U17 women also won team gold medal honours. First scorer for the U15 boys was Thomas Abbott in 2nd place backed up by a strong run from Matthew Snowdon in 3rd and Josh Hulse in 8th. The U17 women's team of Abigail Rose, Lily Woodruff and Anna Firth put in an excellent team performance finishing 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively for their trophy.
There were other notable performances from Jack Weaver (U13B) and Charlotte Summers (U15G), both athletes winning individual silver medals. Jack also picked up a team silver along with team members George Wharam (4th) and Frederick Adams (10th). There was also a strong run from Roger Aldis in the tough senior men's 12k event finishing 14th over all and picking up 3rd place in the V40 category.
Well done to all competitors and thanks to SCAA and all the helpers on the day for organising a great day's racing.

World Hammer Decathlon Championships - Derby, 22 September by Malcolm Fenton

On Saturday September 22nd, the World Hammer Championships took place in Derby. This is the first time the championships have been held in the UK, normally they are held in Hungary.

The event involes throwing different weight hammers, ranging from 4kg to 25.4kg (56lb). The event took 6.5 hours to complete in my pool.

Anyway, competing in the M55 age group, I won the event with 6026 points, this being nearly 1500 points ahead of the 2nd placed athlete and winning each event. In doing so I sent world bests, in the overall event, but also in passing, the Hammer Pentathlon record, with 212.87m, and also in the Heavy Weight Pentathlon, with 61.63m.

This gives me then, this year, four British and one world title.

London Marathon 2013 club entries

Calling all potential Ipswich Harrier London Marathon runners. If you are interested in a club place for the 2013 London Marathon please can you contact Neil Gillingham either via email to this site or in person at the track on a training night by 20th October 2012 so the places can be discussed at the first Ipswich Harriers committee meeting after our AGM.

Each UK Athletics-affiliated club is guaranteed a number of places dependant upon the number of adult club members. Ipswich Harriers usually have 2 or 3 guaranteed places to the London Marathon. If more people apply than we have entries, the committee will apply the following criteria:

- The applicant must have been a fully paid up club member for two years, before the date of the London Marathon in question.
- The applicant must have been an active member of the club in the year prior to the London Marathon. (e.g. regular competing athlete, coach or another form of contribution to the club.)
- The applicant must have applied for and been refused entry to the London Marathon in the public ballot. Please keep your rejection advice from the London Marathon to back up your claim.
- Any member who has secured a club place in the previous year shall not be eligible.

Applications that satisfy all criteria will be randomly drawn, to the number of club places available, to decide the members who shall be awarded the club places.

If selected for a club place you are responsible for paying your own entry.

Track and Field Fixtures 2012 - Online Calendar by Kevin Peirce

As with the cross country fixtures, I'm popping the track events into a shared Google Calendar so that those who are interested can simply add the calendar to their smartphone / desktop calendars. There's quite a few more events than the 2011/12 cross country fixtures so it's taking me a little longer - currently I've done April and May, so give it a few more days before the whole lot's done.

In the meantime you can get the calendar here

(I do this for my own use for coaching/planning purposes but I share it as it's potentially handy to others too - if you do make use of the calendar, it's be great if you could let me know just for curiosity's sake.)

Kieran Clements in Spain for England

Kieran Clements represented England at the Juan Muguerza Cross in Elgoibar, Spain on Sunday and finished in a creditable 7th place.

Great Edinburgh International Cross Country, 7th January

Congratulations to Kieran Clements on his second place finish in the junior men's race at the International Cross Country race in Edinburgh on Saturday. Short video and an extract from a report on the day's races on the UKA website:-

Kieran Clements set a high standard for the Aviva GB & NI team with a second place finish in the junior men's 6km event, the opening race of the day.

Clements - ninth in the European (junior) Cross Country Championships and recent winner of Belgium's Lotto Cross Cup - forced his way through to the front at the half-way point of the first lap, but was soon caught by Kirubel Erassa of the USA, the eventual winner in 19:56, who moved into the lead.

Looking for points from the top four finishers it was close to call at the front with three USA and three Brits in the lead pack.

Mark Shaw (Steve Shaw) was the lead Brit after the opening two laps and at one point looked a major contender for the title, but he was working hard in isolation and into a tough wind.He was followed by Clements three metres behind, with the all-important third and fourth team places taken by Gordon Benson (Phillip Townsend) and Charlie Grice (Jon Bigg) in the top ten.
Clements and Shaw - now working together in a bid to pull in Erassa - couldn't overturn his lead but powered off the downhill to the last 400m to finish in second (19:57) and third (19:59) respectively.

"I didn't come into it in the best shape, but I think I could have had him (Kirubel Erassa of USA) if there was another 100m, but I'm happy with second," said runner-up Clements. "Shaw (Mark Shaw) and I didn't plan to work together but we did and it worked well during the race. It was good to have someone to run with. The course is surprisingly fast. I thought it would be muddy, hilly and really slow, but it went out really fast. I surprised me how fast it was, I was expecting a slow, boggy, Belgium-esque kind of running but it was quick."

EAA Cross Country Championships @ RHS, 27 November by Graeme Crissell

These championships were held at a very windy Royal Hospital School course and attracted the best young runners from across the region for what proved to be a tough race. The quality of the opposition was very high, much higher than they would normally experience, and it was to the credit of those that attended that they were prepared to compete at this level. All of them gained valuable experience which would not be possible in the Suffolk Winter league. All of them raised their profile and all the U13s were selected for Suffolk in the inter counties at Croydon later this year.

Chloe Godbold was the only U13 female Harrier to run and came 11th in a time of 13:13. The best performance of the day was Henry Milldown getting 2nd (10:54) in the U13 boys race and with help from Chris Jones (6th) and Josh Richards they achieved 2nd place in the team event as well.

Olivia Mair and Gabby Hartfield were the U15 girls representatives up against Gemma Holloway the premier U15 cross country runner in this area and did very well in finishing in 17:06 and 18:59 respectively. Richard Ling produced a storming finish to get 6th place (14:55) in the U15 boys with George Williams managing 15:57 in his first championship meeting.

Finally Ross Tenant did very well finishing 2nd in the U17 race in a time of 19:29 with his clubmate Tobias Rankin in 14th with 21;01.

Ross Fawcett continued his impressive recent road running form after taking wins at the Saxons 5 mile race and the Great East 10k he added to to his race victories with a win at the Hadleigh 10 mile race. Racing a distance he had never even ran before in training, Ross ran a sensible and well paced race to storm to victory in a time of 58:52. Following Ross around was Neil Gillingham who was aiming to break 70 minutes for the first time the distance. Neil ran a well calculated race and recorded a negative spilt for the race and finished in 48th position in a new pb of 68:41. An impressive 268 athletes completed the hilly course.

Cross Challenge @ Bristol, 13th November

Congratulations to Kieran Clements for his win in the junior race at the first cross challenge race of the season at Bristol. The following is an extract from a report on the day's races on the UKA website:-

In the junior men's race it was Kieran Clements who was dominant at the front, with Liam Brady of Ireland chasing hard.

Finishing in a time of 23.31, Clements, who went off hard and didn't look back, was the impressive winner followed by Brady (24.16) and Alex Hill in third place in 24.24.

"I'm pleased with my performance today, I expected a bit more of a challenge but it was good to get out there and slog it out by myself and get some good preparation for Liverpool," said Clements.

"Liverpool is the big target and if I get into the team for the Europeans that would be pretty much good enough for me this year. If I get there I would push for a top 15 place, so I will just see what I can do.

"It was a tough course, I kicked a lap too early not realising I had another lap to go, so it was quite tough." (UKA, 2011)

Ipswich Half Marathon, 25th September by Neil Gillingham

On a warm sunny Sunday morning the 3rd edition of the relaunched Ipswich Half Marathon took place. The course itself is a challenging course. The race starts near Northgate before heading into town via Christchurch Park running along the main shopping street in Ipswich, which all is a very fast part of the race as there are many downhill sections in this part. Then it becomes tough, heading out of town it heads up High Street which is nice and hilly and then back along the Bridleway in Christchurch Park which is hilly. After this the race heads towards Dale Hall Lane and then out of Ipswich. The race then has two more steep hills before returning to Ipswich near Humber Doucy Lane and then back to Northgate for one lap of the track and then finish.

Ipswich Harriers had three athletes taking part this year. Chris Rooke who finished second last year returned to have another at taking the title. Chris battled hard to finish second again in a good time of 76:13. Following Chris home was Neil Gillingham in a time of 98:16 in 101st position completing his seventh half marathon of the year. Kirsty Thorndyke was the third Harrier to take part and the only Harrier female to take part ran a new personal best of 1:51:53 in 334th position in her third half marathon of the year. A total of 857 runners completed the course.

Robin Hood Marathon, 11th September by Neil Gillingham

Neil completed the Robin Hood Marathon in Nottingham in a time of 3 hours 41 mins and 31 secs in 262nd place. The following is Neil's review of the event:-

The Robin Hood Marathon is my third marathon within a year and a half and with previous times of 4h42m and 3h56m, I was hoping to run around the 4 hour mark as I had been training lightly for this marathon for the furthest run pre rsce being only 10 miles.

The marathon runs alongside the half marathon and for the first 12.5 miles follow the same scenic route.

Starting and finishing alongside the river Trent at Victoria Embankment, you will run past many of Nottingham's historical and well known landmarks including Robin Hood himself just outside Nottingham Castle, Wollaton Deer Park and Wollaton Hall. As you pass through Nottingham University you will view the magnificent Trent Building as you run around the lake before returning past the Experian building and onto the tree lined Victoria Embankment to start the second half of the race. The first half of the race is hilly.

At approximately 12.5 miles the full marathon runners split off from the half marathon runners and run along the promenade path by the Trent and under Trent Bridge before passing over Lady Bay Bridge, leaving the city and into Nottinghamshire. The route then takes in the National Water Sports Centre and Holme Pierrepont Hall before returning along the Trent cycle path to County Hall and passes over the old toll bridge and onto the tree lined Victoria Embankment to the finish. The race after 10.5 miles is almost entirely flat.

The weather on race day was good for running until in the marathon you turned for home at the National Water Sports Centre as there was a strong headwind for 5 of the final 6 miles which was testing for the best and the most experienced of the athletes.

This time was a 15 minute improvement of my Virgin London Marathon performance this year and a whole hour of my 2010 Virgin London Marathon performance. Things are looking encouraging for a potential sub 3h30m clocking at my next marathon dependant on training, the course and weather conditions.

Breckland 10k, 2nd May by Neil Gillingham

Bank holiday Monday 2nd May saw three Harriers make the trip up to Croxton near Thetford to take part in the Breckland 10k. On a rather warm and windy day the three Harriers performed well. Neil Gillingham ran a new 10k pb only 2 weeks after the London Marathon. Lucy Barnes making her debut over the 10k distance finished a fantastic 15th women overall despite still being an under 17 women and Tonya Antonis made a welcome return after a recent injury lay off.

London Marathon and Mini Marathon, 17th April, by Neil Gillingham

It was a rather warm day in London on Sunday so I think times were a little bit down on what people were capable of. However I was pleased to break 4 hours, Kirsty was only 4 minutes down on her target time of 4h30m (and can't wait to do another one) and Gary was just happy to finish!! The results are as follows:

17th April - Virgin London Marathon

3102nd 03h23m30s Glynn Thomas
8497th 03h56m50s Neil Gillingham (pb)
17395th 04h34m10s Kirsty Thorndyke (pb)
33012th 06h23m42s Gary Austin (pb)

I have attached some photos as well.

National Junior League team by Graeme Crissell

Dear Ipswich Harrier,

As you may or may not know, Keith Moore and myself have volunteered to coordinate and organise the ipswich end of the saxons, the joint team with chelmsford we enter in the national junior league.

This is the highest level at which an ipswich team can compete in and is an important step up from the eastern young athletes which is why the club consider it to be the highest priority for their athletes to compete in.

We are not going to force anyone into competing but I believe the level of competition will benefit all athletes right through from a performance level to the experience to be gained from participating. If you are interested, please let me know either by email or contact me on clubnghts. Any interest will not be considered as an obligation on your part, we just want to find out who would like the experience.

The website is supplied below where you can get more information, but these are the important dates and venues for the matches:

Windsor slough and eton 1st may
chelmsford 29th may
basildon 10th july
blackheath and bromley 24th july

If you have any questions or concerns let me know and I will answer them. If you know of someone who does not have access to emails or has recently joined the club please pass the information on.

a timetable will be sent out separately.

Katy is the Champion! by Wendy Sealy

It was a busy weekend following a busy season for Katy Sealy, winning Gold in the East and Suffolk U20 Heptathlon and Silver in the South of England Championships.
Just one week after finishing 10th at the English Schools Senior Girls Heptathlon in Birmingham, Katy has now added the Suffolk Heptathlon title to her individual titles in the High Jump, Long Jump, Javelin, Shot and 100m Hurdles, won earlier in the year.
At Bedford last weekend she increased her points score to 4180 narrowly missing her season target of 4200 points. That’s an improvement this year of 575 points. Katy started well with a PB in the hurdles in 16.72 seconds followed by an excellent PB with her first attempt clearance of 1m63 in the high jump. She narrowly missed improving that PB by just taking the bar off at 1m66. She then threw 9m02 in the shot putt and equalled her personal best in the 200m with a time of 28.15s. All these performances were an improvement on what she had achieved in Birmingham the previous week.
She started day 2 with another performance stronger than the previous week with a solid long jump of 5m09 just 1cm short of her season’s best. She finished the day with a throw of 35m88 in the javelin and a run of 2m44s in the 800m placing Katy second in the South of England U20 Championships and claiming gold for the East of England and Suffolk.
This points score of 4180 ranks Katy 18th in the UK for U20 womens heptathlon and 32nd of all women in the UK. Katy has high hopes of improving these rankings as she still has a year remaining as an U20 athlete and has set herself the target of reaching the national standard of 4600 points next year.
The 17 year old will now concentrate on her winter training and completing her A-levels at Farlingaye High School.

Southern Women's League - the last battle!

After a hard fought battle on Saturday 30th August at Braintree, Ipswich Harriers won Division 2North. We started the day just 23 points behind the leaders, Victoria Park and Tower Hamlets. They did their best to keep their lead, but we were equally determined to catch up the deficit. Both clubs put athletes into every possible event, but on the day we managed to beat them by 444 points to 412 - a lead of 32 points. The atmosphere in the Harriers camp was wonderful, with everyone cheering on whoever was competing at the time. We had athletes giving their best in their specialist events, but also doing some very unusual ones. Every single point that was won contributed to the success of the club, so congratulations and thanks to everyone who has competed in this league during the season. See you in Division 1 next year!

Southern Women's League 31st May by Elizabeth Welbourn

A lovely warm, dry, sunny day with very little wind made for a great day out for the U15 girls' and senior women's teams at Cambridge on Saturday 31st May. Of the 18 athletes who competed, several achieved PBs, and there were many excellent results. It would be hard to pick out any here for particular mention, so please look at the results on the SWL website (We are in division 2N) Many of the team members did events "for a point", some taking on events they had not tried before, and discovering new talents. With 10 teams in the match, these "extra" events took on great importance in the chase for points. We were rewarded by an excellent 2nd place, 20 points behind the home team, Cambridge and Coleridge AC, and only 4 points ahead of Victoria Park and Tower Hamlets AC. I really hope that we will have a good turn-out for the next meeting, at Northgate, on Saturday 28th June, when we need to show Cambridge that we too can win at home! Well done and thank you to everyone who competed at Cambridge.

British Masters Champs. Lea Valley. 23rd - 24th Feb 08, by Malcolm Fenton

Just to inform you that I won two National Titles at the above Championships. Winning the Hammer and Weight Throw in the M50 age group.
The Hammer was won with a very poor 49.69m, but was still 9m ahead of the 2nd placer.
The Weight was won with 19.69m, some 3m ahead of 2nd place, a distance only ever beaten by myself by a Briton.
The weekend also saw my number of titles at County level and above go through the 200 mark, to 201.

Katy gets the Silver! by Wendy Sealy

Thought you might like to know that Katy Sealy won the silver medal in the very soggy U17 womens' high jump at the South of England Chamionships in Ashford on Sunday. Her second attempt clearance at 1m55 won her the silver medal on countback, just one failed attempt behind the gold medal winner who also cleared 1m55. Katy was one of three athletes who having cleared 1m55 attempted 1m60 to win the competition and all came very close in very difficult conditions. Katy also came 7th in the U17 womens' long jump with 5m06.

Joe has been selected to compete in an International Throws Meeting in Varazdin, Croatia on the 7th July. Joe will be competing as part of the Hammer Circle's Team.

Although very early in the season Joe is currently ranked 2nd in the UK in the U17 Mens Hammer and is eager to regain the top spot.

This will an ideal opportunity for Joe to experience competition in a part of the world with very strong hammer throwing traditions. He will be competing alongside senior and junior Internationals from a number of countries.

Joe has been extremely committed over the winter and has rarely missed any of his 6 days a week training schedule - half of which he spends weight training in our garage on his own.

I am truly delighted his hard work has been rewarded in this way.


Results of the first (Braintree) leg of the three way U13 boys and girls Long Jump competition between Braintree, Colchester & Tendering and Ipswich Harriers show a win for the boys and 3rd [place for the girls. Next meeting is in Colchester on 30th May.

In a crowded arena the Farlingaye High school Under 17 dominated the High jump winning with 1.55 and then went on to win silver in the shot with 8.17. Under 13 Charlotte Shelley is beginning to look like a multi event athlete picking up 2 silver medals in the Long Jump with 4.17 and the 60m hurdles crossing the line in a time of 10.7. At the West Norfolk Indoor Championships at Kings Lynn, Charlotte took gold in High jump with 1.35 and is currently top of the UK Athletics regional rankings. She also collected a bronze in the hurdles with a time of 10.8. Charlotte Cattermole won a silver in a very tight under 15 60m hurdles with 1st 2nd and 3rd all given the same time clocking a very quick 9.7 seconds.

Four athletes showed good club spirit last weekend by travelling to the Birmingham UK Challenge on Saturday and then turning out in the SWL at Framlingham the following day. A tough weekend! Thanks go to Chris Rooke, Daniel Palmer, Elliot Palmer and John Bird for their efforts.

Sufolk Winter League

We made a great start to this season's local cross country league by winning the opening fixture at Framlingham on 29th October. Due to waterlogged conditions the course had to be altered to a three lap race but this didn't cause any problems for our athletes. Leading the men's team home was Michael Fuller in 3rd place closely followed by Chris Rooke in 4th and Glyn Thomas, who recovered from an early fall to finish 6th. The other scorers were:- 11th Dan Borrett, 12th Aza Row, 17th Simon Gardiner, 23rd Daniel Palmer.
Hannah Arbon had a good run in the women's race to finish 9th with the other team scorers being Becky Welbourn in 17th and Elizabeth Welbourn 20th.

Overall, a fantastic club turnout with 23 seniors and 22 younger athletes for the junior race. Elliot Palmer won the junior race with John Bird a few seconds behind in 2nd. Andy Constable just missed out on a top three finish. First girl to finish was Emma Burroughs in 3rd place.

UK Cross Challenge

A number of athletes travelled to Birmingham on the 28th October for the first cross country meeting in this season's UK Challenge series. Top positions were Ellie Sprake who was 3rd in the U20 women's race and Andrew Rooke, 3rd in the U17 men's race. Other performances were:- Senior Men 17th Kelvin Hardy, U20 Men 26th Christopher Rooke and 34th Daniel Palmer, Under 17 Men 40th Elliot Palmer, Under 15 Boys 5th John Bird, Under 13 Boys 9th Alexander Ogilvie.

POSE by Steve Hicks
If you're opened minded and interested in evaluating your current running style then you may be interested to learn something about the POSE technique. There's a POSE coach, Oleg Timoshin, working in the Ipswich area at the moment and he's offering to hold introductory sessions to demonstrate the technique. The session I attended was well delivered, fun and very informative. If you'd like Harriers to invite Oleg to put on session email this site or speak to Steve Hicks or Kevin Peirce. There's a POSE website where you can find out more.

Former Harrier Wins at UK Challenge Final
A wire from our roving reporter Mike Oakley:-
"Taken from UKA Web site report of UK Challenge Final at Manchester yesterday:
In the women's 800m there were plenty of pbs. AAA finalist Charlene Snelgrove (Wakefield) set a great pace with 59.11 at the bell and 90.0 at 600 and there were still three others in contention. However she kicked hard on the bend and though slowing slightly in the last 50, she smashed her pb with 2:02.89.
"I had planned to lead all the way as I hoped to set a pb and I'm not good in tactical races. I was surprised with the time as it was quite windy and that's my last race of the season. I started the season late as I was injured." "

Harriers were comfortable winners of the last Eastern Young Athletes league match at Northgate on 20th August and have finished 6th in the league to qualify for the final on the 10th September.

Promotion for the Southern Men's Team, 5/8/06. In an interview that may have been lost in all the football scores on Grandstand an emotional Colleen Fuller was heard to say "if you look at the latest Div 2 league table you'll see that we finished 4th[at Harrow] and have, therefore, won promotion to Division 1! The team, who were very diminished today mainly due to holidays, were magnificent and fought for every point - Ipswich Harriers (and their very happy Team Manager!) can rightly feel very proud of them."

London Grand Prix
Congratulations to Ellie Sprake who finished 9th in the U20 3000m race at the Norwich Union London Grand Prix at Crystal Palace on 28th July. A great experience and a pb of 9:47.92 to take home.
Ekiden Champions.
The Ekiden is a relay race for teams of 6 participants which covers the marathon distance (26.2 miles) with the 6 legs being 7.2k,5k,10k,5k,10k,5k. Harriers entered just one team this year due to it clashing with a number of events but were strong enough to win the event for the fourth year in a row. This year's event was held at Woodbridge School on a very hot 23rd July 2006. The victorious team was Kelvin Hardy, Chris Spashett, Tom Sharland, Michael Fuller, Sam Jacobs and Paul Graham. Kelvin and Tom also picked up trophies for fastest times for the 7.2k and 10k legs. As we didn't have enough runners for a second team some club members ended up helping some of the social teams and one of them, Ellie Sprake, ran the fastest female 5k leg of the day.

Harriers hosted the latest Southern Men's div 2 match on 22nd July and a fine win means that we're in fourth place in the league and will be going for promotion at the final meeting on 5th August at Harrow.

Harriers hosted an Eastern Young Athletes meeting on 2nd July and finished second in the match.

The Inter Counties, Nottingham - 11th March 2006.
The following was part of a report on the UKA website about the U17 women's race and refers to Ellie's 2nd place finish:-
"Under 17 women (5km): Kirsty Hamilton (Devon) powered away from diminutive Ellie Sprake (Suffolk) in the last couple of hundred metres to win her first National title. It was a clear win in the end – though it had promised to be a thriller. With less than a kilometre to go, Hamilton, Sprake and Jessica Coulson (Greater Manchester) were racing shoulder to shoulder. Even after Coulson began to fade – dramatically in the end – Hamilton had to work hard to get away from Sprake."
There were also notable performances by Andrew Rooke, 11th in the Under 17 Men; Elliot Palmer, 12th in the Under 15 Boys and Laura O'Dell, 10th in the senior women long course.

Congratulations to Ellie Sprake who has been selected to represent English Schools at the World Schools XC champs in Italy in April.

Sam Jacobs(Birmingham University) has been selected to run for the BUSA GB team at the World University Cross Country Championships in Algiers, Algeria, on Friday 24 March.

The ECCA National Cross Country Championships, Parliament Hill, London - 25th February 2006.
The following was part of a report on the UKA website about the U20 women's race and refers to Laura's 3rd place finish:-
"The Under 20 Women's Bronze medal went to Laura Odell (Ipswich) in rather unusual circumstances. Her club originally put her in the Senior Women's race in the mistaken belief that the Junior race was under IAAF rules. The Championships Referee gave her permission on the day to switch to the younger athletes' event wearing a hand-written number which the results computer did not recognise. So it was some time before she was inserted into the official results."
Ellie Sprake also had a great run and collected a bronze medal in the under 17 women's race. Eliie and Andrew Rooke, who was 9th in the u17 men's race, were given letters of consideration to represent the English Schools at the World Schools XC champs in Italy in April.

The SEAA Championships, Bicton College, Exmouth - 28th January 2006
Top performers on the day were Laura O'Dell, 3rd in junior women; Ellie Sprake, 4th in u17 women; Andrew Rooke, 6th in u17 men and Kelvin Hardy, 6th in Junior men.

Champions! YES, you did it. Harriers are the Suffolk Winter League winners following another strong performance, this time at the final meeting at Culford School. Well done to everyone that turned out and thanks to everyone who supported the team this season. Special thanks go to Colleen Fuller for encouraging people to turn out and to Andrew Pattle for catching the action on film. We'll post details of the national final as soon as we get them but unfortunately believe that there has been a change of date to now clash with the English Schools. Crazy!

Don't forget to go to the final Suffolk Winter XC League race on 12th Feb at Culford School and help Harriers in their attempt to win the league:-)

Harriers enjoyed a good day at the Suffolk County Champs at RAF Barnham on 15th January 2006 with four individual wins and a team 1st in the U17 men. The race winners were Kelvin Hardy, Jim Norris, Laura O'dell and Ellie Sprake.

One fixture to go in the Suffolk Winter XC League and we're still holding on to top spot after another fine club performance at the latest meeting at Stowmarket on 8th January. Congratulations must go to James Calvert and Laura O'Dell who enjoyed individual wins which one hopes will get proper recognition in the press! Don't forget the change of venue for the last meeting on 12th Feb - now Culford School.

Congratulations to Kelvin Hardy on his team silver medal running for Great Britain and Northern Ireland at the European Cross Country Championships staged in Tilburg, Netherlands, on Sunday 11 December. Kelvin was third GB runner home in 24th place. This weekend Kelvin will be representing England at a competition in Belgium.

Here's a cross country report just in from our man in the field Kevin Peirce:-

"After several years of obvious decline, Ipswich Harrier's involvement in cross country has made a rapid and glorious come back during this 2005 Suffolk Winter League season. Perhaps it's the achievement of 'Radcliffe/Holmes' having an effect? Or maybe other factors have come into play that are attracting more of our club members into the more 'adventurous' side of the sport? Whatever the reason, it's had the positive effect of propelling Harriers into the overall top spot so far in the Suffolk Winter League - and with good prospects to go on and win the league in February. And we can do better yet...

We have been well represented in all parts of the league (males and females, juniors and seniors) with an amazing turn out in the senior male and female races. In fact we have the lead in a number of individual categories (female 17, female 40, male 17) and in most of the others have athletes in the top five places. What a result.

The junior results tell a similar story with two top slots currently taken (boys 13, boys 17) and expectations for other groups by the end of the season. However, it is here where we could do better. The juniors that have competed have done so with amazing dedication, but there are a number of juniors who could and should be out there racing for the club. The boys are currently holding the top spot, and the girls are third! So come on juniors, get out there in January and run for your club and help get us into those top spots! Everyone of all abilities are welcome as every point scored can count towards our final league standings. There is also an additional bonus for taking part in the Suffolk Winter League. We have all signed an agreement with Harriers to race under the Ipswich Harriers name in a good proportion of available races throughout any given year. Therefore, racing in the Suffolk Winter League is a local and easy way to build up your Harriers races.

So with the brilliant turn outs at a very muddy Framlingham (over 27 athletes), a bitterly cold Bungay (over 25 athletes) and a sunny Woodbridge (over 25 athletes) perhaps it's time to consider resurrecting the Harriers team coach, or maybe even just dust off the old Ipswich Harriers standard that we once thrust proudly into ground at every league event we attended in the old Peter Scott days. If we finish the league this year as we started some of this should certainly be considered next season.

We had another great result in the Suffolk XC League to keep us top of the league after three fixtures. We won both senior races and the boys race.
Strong runs from Janes Calvert(3rd), Glynn Thomas(5th) and Michael Fuller(6th) and good packing from the rest of the team gave us a good score. Becky Welbourn was the first of our ladies home in 4th place.

Ben Spashett ran as a guest in an Essex League xc race at Great Notley on 26th November and won.

We had another good turnout for the Suffolk XC league for the second round at Bungay on 20th November. We finished fourth overall on this occasion but are still just top of the league. First home was Glynn Thomas

in fifth spot just ahead of a back in form Michael Fuller in seventh.
We had another good turnout of juniors with Daniel Palmer being the first of them to finish, in 26th place. The ladies were once again led home by Becky Welbourn
in fifth place.
Well done to all that turned out.

Well done to Glynn Thomas for his third place in the Stowmarket Scenic 7 on 13th November.

The second race in the Suffolk Winter League on the 20th November will now be at Bungay.

We got off to a great start in the Suffolk Winter League by winning the opening league fixture at Framlingham on 30th October. We had a great turnout and placed all our scorers in the top 40 in the men's race. The team was led home by James Calvert in 2nd place, just twenty seconds behind the winner, with Glynn Thomas not far behind in fifth spot. The team of twenty athletes included nine juniors with the highest placer being Jamie Dines in 18th place. The ladies team were led home by a junior with Becky Welbourn finishing in 6th place. Anyone got any pictures from the day? Well done to everyone and lets hope for a similar turnout at the next fixture on 20th November which was scheduled for Woodbridge but now has a question mark against it and may be at Bungay instead. If anyone knows for sure would they email the site. Thanks.

Thanks to everyone that helped on the day and to Milton Keynes AC for compiling the results. A copy of these can be found on the results page.

Congratulations to the Southern Women's team for finishing runners-up in division 3N. They finished off their season with a convincing win at Wycombe on 3rd September.

The Southern Women's team travelled to Haringey on 20th August and put in an excellent performance to win the fixture and move up to second place in the league. Let's hope they can repeat this at the final fixture at Wycombe and hold onto that second spot.

Malcolm Fenton has been appointed as the new UK Athletics hammer coach.

Harriers had another win in the East Anglian League on the 31st July at Northgate. Well done to everyone that turned out.

Ekiden Champions.The Ekiden is a relay race for teams of 6 participants which covers the marathon distance (26.2 miles) with the 6 legs being 7.2k,5k,10k,5k,10k,5k. Harriers entered three teams for this year's event held at Woodbridge School on 24th July 2005 and came away with overall victory with the team comprising Michael Fuller, Ben Spashett, Tom Sharland, James McNally, Sam Jacobs and Kelvin Hardy. This is the third year running that Harriers have won the trophy. There was an exciting competition between our other two teams and they finished only 5 seconds apart. The team that just dipped first were Wendy Griffin, Chris Spashett, Steve Hicks, James Hicks, Claire Holme and Paul Graham to hold off the team of Wendy Sealey, James Calvert, Dave Sealey, Daniel Palmer, Matthew Gisby and Kevin Pierce in 11th place.

In the National Junior League meeting on 24th July at Haringey the women finished 3rd and the men 6th.

The Southern Women's team finished second in their fixture at Cambridge on 23rd July and are currently in third place in division 3N after three fixtures.

There was another trip to Haringey on 9th July and another convincing win for the Southern Men's team. The result leaves us in 3rd place in the league although equal on match points with the second placed team. We'll be hoping for a good result at the final fixture on 30th July to secure second spot and promotion.

The Eastern Young Athletes match at Ipswich on 3rd July was a very close affair with Ipswich and Havering finishing joint first at the end of the match.

Harriers won the third fixture of the East Anglian League at Cambridge on 26th June. There was a convincing win for the Southern Men's team at the third league fixture at Haringey on 25th June. It was a good team performance but a Jason McDade and Michael Fuller deserve a mention for their great contribution on the day. We are currently 3rd in the league.

Glynn Thomas just dipped under the hour at the Ipswich Jaffa 10 mile recording 59:58 in 6th place.

James McNally had an excellent run at the Woodbridge 10k to finish in 4th spot. We won the second match of the East Anglian League at Southend on 5th May.

We put up a good fight in our opening fixture of the Southern Men's T&F league at home on 7th May but were beaten into 2nd place by a strong Ryston team.

The first Southern Women's T&F league meeting at Ilford on 30th April saw a convincing win for the Harriers. Well done everyone.

In the first National Junior League T&F meeting of the season at Woodford on 24th April the women finished 4th and the men 7th.

In the first Eastern Young Athletes T&F meeting of the season at Cambridge we finished third overall.

The track and field league meetings started on 17th April with an East Anglian League fixture at Colchester which didn't give much of a break for those competing in cross country fixtures up to the end of March. We finished in the top three in all age groups, with the U17s winning their's, and finished 2nd overall.

Congratulations to Glynn Thomas (2:57.06), Wendy Sealy (3:57.53) and David Sealy (4:39.29) for completing the Flora London Marathon on 17th April.

We're back online! Sorry we weren't available for a while. This was due to our provider Ghoulnet having another hardware failure but this time they weren't able to supply us with alternative space to rebuild our site to. Instead, we had to pay to upgrade to their new service under the new GNhosting banner. How convenient for them!

The English Schools XC championships took place on the 12th March at a rather chilly Norfolk Showground. Top finisher was Kelvin Hardy with a third place in the Senior Boys race. Well done to all those Harriers who represented Suffolk:- John Bird, Elliot Palmer, Chris Rooke, Luke Hardy, Andrew Rooke, Kelvin Hardy, Chris Spahett, Louise Prowse, Alice Simpson, Ellie Sprake, Becky Welbourne and Lizzie Hicks

Eastern Indoor Athletics Championships - Report from Ricky Hanley, 18/2/05
A small squad of 5 Ipswich Harriers traveled to Kings Lynn for the Eastern Indoor Athletic Championship and come away with 7 medals. First event of the day was the under 17 women long jump and for Geogina Malster competing in this age group for the the first time. Conditions were far from perfect in a very cold indoor arena, however Geogina completely dominated the competion winning the gold medal with a jump 4.93. In the under 11 age group ex gymnast Charlotte Shelly took the gold medal in the long jump and her first ever indoor event. She also took siver in the 60m sprint with a time of 9.5. Fellow ex gymnast Charlotte Cattermole jumped 3.81 in the under 13 girls long jump to take the silver medal. Coached by Ron Jones, Charlotte also won the gold medal in the 60m hurdles with a time of 10.5 in what was a very impresive display for such a young athlete. Nathan Hanley in his first year at under 17 men took the gold medal in the long jump with a leap of 5.87 and went on to win gold in the triple jump. Jumping 12.06m,a clear meter and a half further than the second placed athlete . Nathan and Geogina, both of Kesgrave high school have recently been selected to train with Great Britain international Philips Idowu and national jump coach John Herbert. This means traveling to Haringay in london every saturday morning but it is clearly paying off and both athletes who are very much looking to the next two years in the under 17 age group.

Congratulations Becky Welbourn, Elliot Palmer, Daniel Palmer and Michael Fuller who all won their age group categories in the Suffolk Winter League.

The final race of the local cross country league took place at Stowmarket on 13th February 2005. Michael Fuller rounded off a good league season with another 'first Harrier home' in 12th place but was only 10 seconds ahead of Kevin Pierce who enjoyed his best finishing position of the season. Wendy Sealey has had a good season and was again first Harrier home, this time in 11th place. Elizabeth Welbourn had her best run of the season in 19th spot. We rather dominated the junior race winning the both the boys and girls individual and team events. Chris Rooke had his second win of the season and there was a third 2nd place finish for Elliot Palmer. We also took the first two places in the girls race with the win going to Louise Prowse and second place to Becky Welbourn. The final league positions were 5th place for the seniors, 1st place for the boys and 2nd spot for the girls. Well done to all those that turned out during the season, a good club effort. And a big 'thank you' must go to Colleen Fuller, Gill Arbon and Paul Rutter for their help and support during the season.

Congratulations to Sam Jacobs who picked up an individual silver medal in the junior race at the Southern XC championships at Parliament Hill on 29th January. He was closely followed home by Kelvin Hardy who just missed out on a medal in fourth place.

The first race of the New Year was the fourth round of the local cross country league at Bury St Edmunds on 2nd January. We were unable to field a full men's team so lost out on points and have now dropped a place to fourth in the table. Those that did turn out for the men were all juniors and put up a good performance. First home was Michael Fuller in 5th followed by Alex Wold in 9th. Another junior, Laura O'Dell, had a great run to win the ladies race and Becky Welbourn was first girl in the junior race.

back to top

A number of athletes travelled to Belgium for the Lotto Brussels Crosscup on the 19th December 2004. Claire Holme celebrated her last race as a junior with another win to round of a very good year for her. Kelvin Hardy had a good run for 3rd place in the junior men's race,

Well done to Claire Holme who was first GB runner home in 10th place in the junior women's race at Spar European Cross Country Championships in Germany on 12th December. It was also a good result for the team which finished in second place and so brought home silver medals.

The third round of the local cross country league at Woodbridge on 5th December saw another good club turn out and a changed course run over a single lap rather than the normal two laps. Glynn Thomas was again first home for us, this time in 9th, with Michael Fuller his customary two places behind in 11th. There was a fine debut in the senior race for junior Chris Spashet who finished 14th. First home in the ladies race was Wendy Sealy in 9th place. There were good wins in the junior races for Becky Welbourn and Chris Rooke (with brother Andrew close on his heels in 2nd). The boys won the team event. In the overall standings, the Seniors are in 3rd place, the Boys in 1st place and the Girls in 2nd place.

Congratulations to Kelvin Hardy who won the Under 20 Men's race at Reebok Challenge race at Liverpool on 4th December.

We had another good turn out for the second meeting of the local cross country league at Bungay on 21st November. The recent cold weather meant the ground was fairly hard. It was a similar Harrier's result to the previous round with Glynn Thomas first home in 8th place closely followed by Michael Fuller in 10th place. First home in the ladies race was Wendy Sealy in 10th place. The girls and boys won their team events in the junior race with Becky Welbourn winning the girl's race and brothers Elliot and Daniel Palmer in second and third place in the boy's race.

Claire Holme continued her great start to the cross country season with a victory in the junior women's race at the Reebok Challenge at Parliament Hill on 20th November. The traditional uphill start had been removed so that the course was a more accurate reflection of the one to be used for the European Championships that this was also a qualifier for. There was still plenty of the familiar mud though. Claire now goes on to represent Great Britain in Heringsdorf, Germany on 11th December. Well done and good luck.

Well done to Tom Sharland who made his debut for the senior England team for the cross country international at Margate on 14th November. Tom ran well and was third scorer for England and fifth overall. The team won the event.

Congratulations to our U20 men's team of Matt Barnes-Smith, Kelvin Hardy and Sam Jacobs for winning the National Cross Country Relays at Mansfield on 7th November. We didn't get off to an ideal start when Matt was pushed into a tree leaving us in 10th place after the first leg but close enough to the leaders for Kelvin and Sam to work us through to first place. This repeated our win from last year.

There was a good Harrier turn out for the first race of the local cross country league at Framlingham on 31st October. It was a tough course to start the season off with very deep mud in places. Glynn Thomas put in a good performance in his first run in a Harrier's vest to be first club member home in 10th place. Michael Fuller showed great stamina to finish 16th having made the trip back from University via working a nightshift and very little sleep. First home in the ladies race was Wendy Sealy in 12th place. In the junior race the boys were first team and had brothers Elliot and Daniel Palmer in second and third place overall. Rebecca Mayo-Jennings had a good run to come home first girl.

Congratulations to Claire Holme on a fine run to win the junior women's race at the Reebok Cross Challenge at Birmingham on 30th October.

Congratulations to Matt Barnes-Smith on a comfortable win at the Martlesham 10k on 10th October on a rather blustery day. There was also a fine 6th place for Alex Wold, a past fun run winner, now making the step up to the full distance. In Alex's place, victory in the fun run went to James Hicks to add to victories in a number of fun runs this year.

Congratulations to James Calvert on a fine third place on his debut over the distance at the Felixstowe half marathon on 3rd October. James was also awarded senior county champion due to the first two places being filled by veteran runners.

The third round of the Friday 5 series was hosted by Ipswich Jaffa and held at Claydon on 11th June. The junior run was a repeat of Kirton with James Hicks in first place and Jonny Palmer hot on his heels in 2nd. As the race was a lot shorter than billed James then decided to make his debut at 5 miles and put in a strong performance to finish first Harrier in 34 minutes with Club President Martin Buis next home in 35 minutes.

Kelvin Hardy and Claire Holme were invited to take part in the Loughborough International on 6th June. Kelvin had a cracking run in the 1500m breaking the 4 minute barrier with 3:56 and Claire continued her good form with a 9:37 in the 3000m. Well done.

NJAL Grand Prix
Disappointing News
Anticipating that Kerry Dixon would consolidate her position in the NJAL Grand Prix rankings on Sunday at PArliament Hills, it came as a huge disappointment to hear that Kerry had sustained an ankle injury competing at Watford on Saturday. Having achieved a new personal best in the High Jump Kerry must have been hoping to possibly make the top three on Sunday. It wasn't to be and with the Harriers team decimated also by GCSE candidates withdrawing and yet another clash with EAL, Rachel had the hard task of managing a team of one. Kerry Fuller was magnificent leaving her revision tent three times to collect 17 points from a maximum possible 21. She was supported by a full team of officials and we anticipate that when the final results are published, Harriers might not finish last. Herts Phoenix were runaway winners again and take the league very seriously filling most events with A and B runners.

Report from Mike Oakley, 22/5/04
Kerry Dixon
15 yr.old Kerry Dixon of Ipswich Harriers currently stands in 4th place in the National Junior Athletic League Grand Prix competition. The competition is open to athletes from England, Scotland and Wales who are aged between 15 and 19 and is scored for performance in three events at three of the four League fixtures throughout the season. Competing for Ipswich in the Thames Division Kerry ran 100 metres in 13.1 seconds, 200m in 26.6s and High Jumped 1.50 metres. At the end of the season, the leading eight athletes are invited to Derby to compete head to head for the Grand Prix trophy. 16 yr old Hayley Todd is also doing well in the competition currently in 18th place. For both girls this is a remarkable performance against athletes from some of the best athletics clubs in the UK and most of whom will be considerably older than the Ipswich pair.. The remaining qualifying fixtures are on 23 May at Parliament Hills in London, 20 June at Ipswich and 25 July at Woodford Green.

The first two SML meetings were in May and held at Ipswich. This is the first time they've been held in Ipswich for a couple of years because of track restrictions. The jump pits were moved outside the track making it possible to meet UK Athletics requirements and hold meetings at the Northgate track. We had a strong turnout for the second meeting and won the event thanks partly to wins by Ben Higgins, Dan Scurrell, Michael Fuller, Liam Rutter, Jason McDade and Chris Snook. The next meeting is at Haringay on 26th June.

The London Marathon for 2004 was wet and windy but didn't prevent some good club performances from Steve Hicks(3:04), David Sealy(3:55) and Wendy Sealy(3:58). Here's to better conditions next year.

Claire Holme ran for the Junior Women’s Norwich Union GB team at IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Brussels on 20th March and finished 88th. The following was part of a report of the event on the UK Athletics website:-
Claire Holme, a Birmingham University student whose home is in Ipswich and who competes for Ipswich Harriers, was 88th in 23:39 on her GB debut. She said: “So many times I really didn’t think that I was going to finish but I thought ‘I can’t drop out’. I have a cold all week which has been getting me down. I am just really pleased I finished as I didn’t think I was going to at one point. It was tough.”

The Reebok UK Inter-Counties Cross Country Championships took place in Nottingham on 6th March. There was a fine run by Claire Holme in the U20 women's race with a third place finish which earned her selection for the team for the World XC Champs in Brussels. Kelvin Hardy added another medal to this season's collection with a second place in the U17 men's race.

Congratulations Katy Sealy, Matt Harrison and Elliot Palmer who all won their age group categories in the Suffolk Winter League.

The final round of the local cross country league took place at Bungay on 22nd February. First senior home was Kevin Pierce in 25th place a few seconds ahead of junior runner Liam Rutter in 26th place. Wendy Sealy finished in 9th place in the ladies race and was first Harrier home in all the ladies races this season. There was a 2nd place finish for Matt Harrison in the junior race.

The ECCA National Cross Country Championships at Leeds on 21st February provided us with some more medals with Kelvin Hardy finishing third in the U17 men's race and Tom Sharland third in the U20 men's race. The U20 team of Tom, Sam Jacobs, Matt Barnes-Smith and Paul Graham also finished third team.

The fourth round of the local cross country league took place at Stowmarket on 25th January. First senior home was Kevin Pierce in 19th place followed by junior runner James McNally in 25th place. Wendy Sealy continued her run of being first Harrier in the ladies race, this time in 8th place. There were wins for Matt Harrison and Becky Welbourne in the junior race.

Congratulations to our South of England County Cross Country Champions:-
   Tom Sharland   Kelvin Hardy
We were treated to good cross country conditions at Parliament Hill on 24th January with the sun shining most of the day and a tough but not as waterlogged a course as has been the norm in recent years. Our U20 men had a good day with Tom Sharland, Sam Jacobs, Ben Spashett and Paul Graham collecting team silver. The foundation for this was laid by Tom's victory in the race followed home in second by Sam. There was also a win for Kelvin Hardy in the U17 men's race. Well done to everyone that took part and thanks to everyone that came and supported.

Congratulations to our Suffolk County Cross Country Champions:-
   Alice Simpson   Laura Dowsing   Matt Barnes-Smith   Tom Sharland   Laura O'Dell   Kelvin Hardy
It was a good day out for Harriers at the Suffolk Cross Country Championships at West Stow on 4th January 2004 with individual victories in 6 of the 10 races being contested and three team wins. Alice Simpson followed up her victory at the last local league meeting with a win in the first race of the day for U13 girls. This was soon followed by comfortable wins for Laura Dowsing in the U15 girls and Matt Barnes-Smith in the U20 men. Tom Sharland repeated his success of last season with victory in the senior men's race. There was a fine run by Laura O'Dell running as a first year U20 in the combined senior and U20 ladies race which saw her win the race outright beating many experienced runners in the process. Kelvin Hardy finished the day of in style with a win in the U17 men's race. Well done to everyone that took part.

The third round of the local cross country league took place at Bury on 21st December. We were a bit depleted for this one so didn't score too well. First senior home was Kevin Pierce in 22nd place. Wendy Sealy was our only runner in the ladies race. There was a win for Alice Simpson in the junior girls race and a second place for Matt Harrison in the boys race.

Sam Jacobs and Matthew Barnes-Smith ran for the junior Norwich Union GB Team at the 10th Spar European Cross Country Championships on the 14th December 2003 in Edinburgh. Sam finished 22nd and Matt 26th. The following was part of a report of the event on the UK Athletics website:- Sam JACOBS, who was born in Ipswich, studies at Birmingham University, runs for Ipswich Harriers and finished 22nd in 21:38, said: “I ran OK. I was quite pleased with the result. I wanted to be in the top 20. It was a very physical race. But I liked the course; it was excellent. The Team bunched well but on another day maybe we could do better with some of us in the top ten or 15. The crowd was great, especially in the latter stages when the going gets tough. That really helps you.”
Matthew BARNES-SMITH, who lives in Bury St Edmunds, runs for Ipswich Harriers and was 26th in 21:43, said: “It was different. It was not so much that it was hard but that in the first half, the field was so bunched that I couldn’t run and had to hold back. It’s not the best idea to hit the front at the start but at least if I had I would have been able to run freely. It was a race of two halves. It felt like I was not doing anything for the first half and then ran a 3km race. I really enjoyed it. The support was excellent.”

The second round of the local cross country league took place at Woodbridge on 7th December. There was another good Harriers turnout and first senior home was Steve Hicks in 15th place with Kevin Pierce in hot pursuit in 18th place. Wendy Sealy was the leading Harrier in the ladies race. A number of junior raced the previous day in the school's race at RHS but of those that turned out for this one, Elliot Palmer and Sophie James were first Harriers home.

Following their performance in the European trials at Reebok, Liverpool, Matt Barnes-Smith and Sam Jacobs have been selected to run for the Norwich Union GB Team for European Cross Country Championships in Edinburgh on Sunday 14th December. Well done and good luck.

There were some outstanding cross country performances by Harriers at the Reebok event at Liverpool on 22nd November. In the U20 race, which was also a European Championships trial, Matt Barnes-Smith put in a fine effort for third place closely followed by Sam Jacobs in fifth place. There was another great run from Kelvin Hardy who tasted victory in the U17 men's race.

Congratulations to Claire Holme and Kelvin Hardy who were both selected to represent England in the U20 International races held during the Reebok Challenge cross country races held at Margate on the 16th November. Kelvin was runner-up and first England runner home in his race and Claire was sixth and second scorer in her race. Well done.

There was a great result for Harriers at the National cross country relays at Mansfield on 8th November with a win for Tom Sharland, Sam Jacobs and Matt Barnes-Smith in the U20 men. Well done lads! Tome and Sam also shared the fastest time for all stages. There was also a fastest time for Kelvin Hardy in the U17 men and a second fastest for Claire Holme in the U20 women.

The local cross country season started with the traditional Suffolk Winter League race at Framlingham on 2nd November. The conditions were fairly traditional as well with hills, mud and wind greeting the competitors. First Harrier home in the senior race was junior Alex Wold in 16th place making his first appearance in the main race having been a prolific winner of the junior race in the past. Next home was new member Aza Row in 21st. The ladies were well represented and were led home by the experienced Andrea McNally in 9th place with the improving Kelly Mayhew one place behind Andrea. Hannah Arbon was another junior making the move up to the senior race and managed a fine 20th place. There was a win for Ellie Sprake in the junior girls race and a third place for Matt Harrison in the boys race.

A number of athletes travelled to Birmingham for the second Reebok Cross Challenge on 1st November Top placing went to Kelvin Hardy who finished 2nd in the U17 men's race.

Matt and Will Barnes-Smith made the long trip north to Falkirk, Scotland to take part in the first Reebok Cross Challenge on 18th October and had good runs in their respective races.

The first day of the SEAA 6 stage Road Relays at Aldershot proved a frustrating one for our senior team as they got stuck on the M25 on the way there and the five and a half hour journey meant that they missed the start and had to be content with being allowed to all run during the last leg. A long way to go for what turned out to be a training run. Things picked up on the second day with the U17 men's team of Joe Thompson, Jack Walker, Alex Wold and Kelvin Hardy finishing 7th.

National Junior League report from Mike Oakley:- "With a much depleted team the 1 Junior and 4 Under 17 women went to Copthall on Sunday to contest the Southern Promotion Match of the National Junior League. Against some of the very best Junior Women in the South of England they all covered their maximum permitted events and scored a fine 99pts finishing 6th. With 4 athletes crying off on Tuesday and a further two on Sunday morning the remaining athletes generated a truly amazing team spirit and did their team manager and loyal band of supporters proud. The intrepid 5 held the Ipswich flag high and showed a magnificent example to those athletes who have yet to realise just how good athletics can be. Well done to all."

National Junior League report from Mike Oakley:- "Harriers Under 20 Women ended the League with a 100% record finishing 7 points ahead of their nearest rivals. They have now qualified for the Southern Promotion match at Copthall. There they will compete against the team who finish 7th in the Premier Division, the 4 other Division winners and the best 2 of the runner up. The match will be on 14th September. A great achievement."

Ekiden Champions.  Harriers entered two teams for the Ekiden marathon six stage relay held at Woodbridge School on 27th July 2003 and came away with overall victory with the team comprising Steve Hicks, Ollie Barrett, Tom Sharland, Kelvin Hardy, Sam Jacobs and Matt Barnes-Smith. The second team of Kelly Mayhew, Ian Ling, Kevin Peirce, Matt Gisby, Paul Cardy and Russell Simpson put in a good effort as well and were first B team home in 12th place overall. Although the winning margin of four minutes sounds comfortable it was in fact a close fought affair with Harriers only taking the lead at the end of the fourth leg but once there were able to gradually stretch out their lead. A very enjoyable event and a great victory.

Well done to Ben Higgins who made it through to the 400m semi-final stage at the IAAF World Youth Championships held in Canada from 9-13th July 2003 where he finished 5th in 49.40.

The SWL were on the road again for a meeting in Windsor on 17th May and managed to finish a place higher than their last outing but there's still lots to be done to get back to winning ways. The next day was UKNYAL at Tonbridge and another good 2nd place for the juniors.

We had our first meeting in the new UKNYAL at Bexley on 4th May and came away with a fine 2nd place to the host club. The previous day the SML team travelled to Battersea where they struggled to last place.

The track & field league season started for Harriers over the last weekend in April and rather stretched resources with three meetings to contest. There were some good early season performances from the U13 girls at the SWL at Luton on the Saturday but lack of seniors meant a last place in the match. It was EAL and NJL on Sunday and a good result for the women at the NJL at Ilford as they won their match. The EAL at Norwich saw us finish 2nd.

Congratulations to Steve Hicks(3:10) and Georgina Townsend(4:01) on completing the 2003 Flora London marathon on 13th April in what was lovely weather for spectators but a bit warm for the runners. Thanks to family, friends and Harriers that travelled down and supported them on the day. A good day out.

A number of athletes travelled to London for an early season track outing at Crystal Palace on 6th April. They were attending the 23rd Young Athletes meeting hosted by Hercules Wimbledon AC.

Well done to all Harriers that represented Suffolk in the inter-counties cross country at Nottingham on 8th February.

Congratulations to Nigel Allison, Hannah Arbon, Becky Welbourn and Alex Wold who all won their age group categories in the Suffolk Winter League.

The final XC league race took place at Stowmarket on 26th January. There was a strong run from junior Laura O'Dell in the senior race which saw her finish 3rd lady.

The local cross country season started with the traditional Suffolk Winter League race at Framlingham. Gale force winds had damaged a few trees around the course forcing a need to shorten the course for saftey reasons. Everyone coped well with the blustery conditions and there were noteworthy performances by junior Michael Fuller who was 9th in the senior race and Hannah Arbon who was 1st in the junior ladies race. The girls team also finished in 1st place thanks in part to a strong run from Becky Welbourn to take 2nd place. Kelly Mayhew was first lady home in 9th place.

We put in a late entry for the Ekiden marathon relay on 28th July 2002 organised by Ipswich Jaffa and came away with a creditable 6th place in the Men's Open category. We entered a mixed team of Ian Ling, Marie Shirley, Kevin Pierce, Andrea McNally, Steve Hicks and Laura Anderson but had to compete in the men's open as there was no mixed category. It was very hot and much water was thrown about to keep our runners cool. Thanks to our support crew for that.

There was a good turnout for the National Junior league meeting at Ipswich on 28th July with a lot of the girls having already competed the previous day in the SWL. Despite this and another hot day they performed well and finished 2nd in their match. The boys managed a creditable 3rd place in their match.

There was another good effort by the SWL team, this time at Bury on 27th July where they finished 2nd by five points. There were some outstanding performances on a hot day and included pbs for Hayley Todd (discus), Kirsty Thorndyke (triple jump), and Lizzie Hicks (hammer & hurdles).

EAL 11th August 2002 - change of venue Due to UK Athletics rules introduced this year we've been forced to give up the EAL meeting planned for 11th August 2002 at Ipswich as the jumping areas are inside the track at Ipswich. The meeting will now be hosted by Norwich. This means another trip and loss of revenue for our club.

The SWL team travelled to Eton Manor on 6th July with an under strength team but still managed to finish an impressive 2nd place, only 7 points behind the winners. Louise Gregory was kept busy doing six events and Amy Wilson had three A string wins in the throws to lead the way in the seniors. There was also a pb for Louise Morgan in the 200m. In the U15s there were pbs for Emily Beckett in the discus and Kerry Fuller in the hurdles. The team will be looking to get back to winning ways for the next meeting on 27th July at Bury.

There was a great performance by Eric Phillips, Mike Moir and Steve Hicks at the Eastern Vets league meeting on 3rd July where they managed to finish 2nd in the men's match.

SML 13th July 2002 - change of venue

Due to UK Athletics rules introduced this year we've been forced to move the SML meeting on 13th July 2002 from Ipswich to Bury St Edmunds as the jumping areas are inside the track at Ipswich. Unlike at Ipswich, there is no seating or shelter available at Bury. Also, we are not permitted to offer Heather Bennett's fantastic refreshments service which is a loss to the athletes and spectators and an invaluable source of income for our club. Click here for details about the Bury St Edmunds track via the splendid UK running track directory (always like to finish on a positive note).

Well done to Tom Sharland, Sam Jacobs, Jermaine Bernard, Ollie Barrett and Chris McManus who took part in the AAA Under 20 Championships on the weekend of 29/30 June in Bedford. Top performance came from Tom in the 5000m with a win in a time of 14m32.2s

We had a good club performance at the EAL on the 16th June at Colchester. We were 1st or 2nd in all age groups and came away as overall winners of the meeting. Well done to Louise Morgan who set new U17 Women records in the 100m (12.5s) and 200m (27.4s).

Well done to everyone who took part in the Jubilee Trophy meeting at Northgate on 9th June. The turnout may not have been very high but there were some quality performances and five meeting records set. The Harriers setting records were Sarah Thomas in the junior women's discus with 26.44m and Tom McCarthy in the U13 boys 70m hurdles in a time of 15.8s. Former Harrier Jason McDade, now competing for Woodford Green, set a new men's record of 2.05m in the high jump. Two more men's records were broken by K. Tufton of Havering Mayes in the pole vault with 4.00m and by J. Lundman of Newham & Essex Beagles in the javelin with 62.05m. Full results are available in the RESULTS section.

The SWL team continued there good form with a fine win by nearly 50 points at their meeting in London on 8th June. The SML team had to settle for another fifth place for their trip to the city.

From the Suffolk County website - The 5 Kilometre Track County Championships will be held at the Northgate Track Ipswich on 17th June 2002. The "B" race will start at 7.30pm. The ladies race at 8.00pm and "A" race at 8.30pm.

Congratulations to Andrea McNally, Marie Shirley and Christina Ennis who won the ladies team prize at the Ipswich Jaffa 5 mile race on 26th May. First Harrier home for the men was junior Neil Gillingham who was making his debut at the distance.

Congratulations to Alex Wold who won the 1.5 mile fun run that took place before the Kirton 5 mile race on 24th May. James Hicks was 8th in the same event. It was a bit wet and windy at times but the conditions didn't stop Rob Clayton and Steve Hicks having good runs in the 5 mile race.

The NYAL boys team had a convincing win at the second league fixture at Basildon on 19th May much to the delight of new team manager Garfield Hunt.

There was another fine performance by the SWL team on 18th May at Parliament Hill which saw them finish second by two points. The SML team had little to show for a long trip to Southampton finishing fifth.

Same place, same time but a new route for the Woodbridge 10k road race this year. It was still run as a two lap race but in the opposite direction, which meant an uphill finish, with a loop which required crossing a mainish road taken out. Harrier's President Martin Buis turned out for this one and was joined by Andrea McNally who finished first V40 and Steve Hicks. There was a good turnout for this and the junior 1.6k race which James Hicks finished 7th in.

There will be some guest coaches for specific events at the track in May and June. See fixtures for dates and put name on list in hut if interested.

Congratulations to Alex Wold who won the Young Athletes 1 mile road race at Felixstowe on the 6th May in a time of 5:26. James Hicks was 6th in the same event. The main race was the traditional 5 mile race over five laps with a bit of hillwork required. The sun was out and there was a bit of a breeze coming off the sea so good conditions and good runs from Marie Shirley, Rob Clayton and Steve Hicks.

The SML team had their first match of the season at Kingston on 4th May but could only manage fifth spot.

The senior and U17 men won their matches at the first EAL at Norwich on April 28th. Harriers finished third overall.

Sue Tunaley's SWL team got off to a flying start winning their first meeting of the season on 27th April by a staggering 105 points. Well done to all the athletes involved

Congratulations to Christina Ennis, and Steve Hicks on completing the 2002 flora london marathon. Inter Counties - Nottingham - 9th February 2002 A very windy day but a good running surface and the chance of being seen on TV as Sky Sports were covering all the races. The first race of the day was the U20 men and we were treated to another fine run from Tom Sharland as he finished second to Middlesex's Mohamed Farah. Sam Jacobs followed up his win at Parliament Hill with a good third place run in the U17s race. Well done to all the Harriers that represented Suffolk, a good day's racing.

Junior International - Portugal - 27th January Tom Sharland was a member of the Norwich Union Great Britain & Northern Ireland Team that won the annual Junior's Triangular Cross Country International Match in Lisbon against Portugal and Spain. Tom led home the GBR contingent in the junior men's race finishing fourth in 23:59 in a race won by Carlos Silva (Portugal) in 23:34. Well done Tom.

SEAA Championships - Parliament Hill - 26th January 2002 Extremely wet and muddy conditions and an undulating course on Hampstead Heath made for some tough races. The highlight of the day for Harriers was Sam Jocob's win in the U17 race. Sam took the lead early in the race and gradually pulled away from the rest of the field eventually winning by nearly a minute. Sam was well supported by the rest of the team and they only missed out on team gold by one point. Well done to everyone that took part.

Well done to those that turned out at the Suffolk County XC Champs at West Stow on 6th January 2002. There were wins on the day for Joe Thompson, Tom Sharland, Claire Holmes and Sam Jacobs. Good luck to everyone selected for the inter-counties in February.
