Six athletes from Morpeth Harriers took part in the second in the series of BMC Regional Standards Meetings, held at Chester Le Street, on a very wet evening on Monday 5th June 2017.
Despite the appalling conditions, four out of the six in action managed to achieve new personal best performances, out of a total of forty-seven in all, who contested the ten 1500m races on offer.
In the second fastest race of the night, double North-Eastern Counties Silver medallist Taylor Glover managed to knock nearly four seconds off his previous best, when finishing third, and posting a time of 4m04.18s.
Fellow Morpeth Harrier Jordan Scott, competing in the same race, finished sixth,
posting a time of 4m07.46s, improving on his previous best by almost two seconds.
In his first ever 1500m, Joe Ramshaw finished second in the third fastest race of the night,
posting an excellent 4m08.52s, which proved to be the twelfth fastest overall.
Double North-Eastern Counties Champion Holly Peck could feel very pleased,
and somewhat relieved to take one second off her previous best,
when finishing eighth in a mixed seventh fastest race.
She posted new figures of 4m49.61s, which also made her the fastest of all
eleven Under 15 Girls competing on the night, and possibly sees her inside
the English Schools qualifying standard.
Another Under 15 Girl in action was her club colleague Rhiannon Hedley,
who was a little adrift of her personal best in the ninth fastest race.
She posted a time of 5m16.10s, which was ninth fastest of her age group.
Elder brother Kieran competed in the fastest race of the night, finishing fourth in 4m03.4s,
which although was outside his best, was third fastest of the Under 20 Men’s performances
