Barry Lloyd finishes 4th at the Bedford 20

Posted: March 25, 2018 by RSCAC in Race reports

Well done to Barry Lloyd who finished 4th at the Bedford 20 today in a time of 2.04. Barry is training for the London Marathon – it looks like he’s in great shape!

Shaun Home CountriesWell done to Shaun Evans and Georgia Curry who finished the XC season in style with great performances at the Home Countries International at Nottingham. Representing the Midlands Shaun finished in 10th place whilst Georgia finished 20th.

Hi Everyone, Just seen the results of the W55 Triple Jump at the European Masters Indoors in Madrid and am delighted to report that Janice Pryce (in her last year in this age group ) took the silver medal with a jump of 9.65m .This is a new British Indoor record beating the old record of 9.43m set by Teresa Eades in 2014 and of course this is a new Club record.Janice now holds both  the British outdoors record (9.75m) and the Indoors record.

On the last day Champs Donald Brown, running the lead off leg for the Great Britain M50 4x200m relay team, came away with a bronze medal when taking third place behind Italy and France. The time set by Italy was a new European record. Earlier in the week Donald Brown made it through to the semi finals of the 60m and 60m Hurdles but just missed out on a place in both Finals. His 60m Hurdles meeting record set in Turin in 2015 still remains as the meeting record.

Well done Janice and Donald.
A message from John Topliss:
Hi Everyone, Just received the news that Quentin Anthony (competing in his first meeting for the club) has just set a Club record in the Senior Mens Triple Jump at the Midland Counties Open at the HPC at Alexander Stadium. He jumped 13.33m ,which is also a PB , to beat Donald Browns previous record of 13.22m set 30 years ago in 1988.
Both Quentin and Donald are coached by Joe Caines and I am sure Janice Pryce, also part of  Joe’s squad and holder of several  British Masters Triple Jump records , will be helping Quentin as well. Well done Quentin.

All the best. John T
PS Both Donald and Janice are competing next week in the European Masters Indoor Champs in Madrid, Spain. We wish them well.
