In the UK to begin with this week as we saw four club athletes in action on the road. At the Run Through 10km event at Kempton Park race course Scott Overall won the race in 29.59 with Ross Braden a solid second in 30.52 in a field of 217 finishers.

Slightly longer event at the same venue saw William Brindley clock 3.11.11 over the marathon distance for a new pb, while at St Albans Carole Coulon ran 10km in 37.20, a fantastic effort for 58th overall in the race but more importantly second lady to finish and second W40 class as well.

With the US outdoor season now well underway, the club had two throwers in action with Divine Oladipo throwing the shot out to 17.03m, and throwing the discus 52.35m, both seasons bests at an event in Jacksonville, Florida, while at a meeting in Williamsburg, Virginia, Tom Parker threw the hammer out to 64.67m just a little below his recent pb.
