Midland Veterans League – 28 May

Posted: May 30, 2014 by RSCAC in Race reports

Here’s a report by John Topliss on the latest Vets meeting:

“Great performances by everyone who competed on Wednesday in damp, cold, miserable conditions at Alexander Stadium. The results are available here:



Two new club records were set:
  • Joe Caines, now an M60, in his first outing for several years set a new record in the 200m in 27.7 beating my own record set ten years ago of 27.9 when getting the bronze medal in the British Champs. Either the track is short (but thinking about it that is where I set my time) or Joe is not 60. Seriously though well done Joe it was great to see you running again.
  • Graham Felton set a new M65 Discus (1.5Kg) record with 23.24m. Well done Graham.
The next meeting is at Burton on the 25th June with the last one at Wyndley on the 30th July. The Cup Finals are at Stoke on Sunday 31st August.
The next Midland Men’s and Women’s League meeting is on Saturday the 7th June at Worcester (a change from the original venue). Please make sure you’re available for this important match”
