Athletics: Thurrock Harriers impress at parkrun

THE 9th Park Run was held at Orsett Heath on Saturday with several Harriers making the 9.00 a.m. start.

The race was won by Henri Willett – one of the strong Under 15 section of the Club. He outsprinted his team mate Jamie Mack – a member of the Club’s outstanding under 13 team. The 2 lads were shepherded round by Keith Willett who was using the venue as part of his week-end long run.

Kirk Bundy ran steadily for 5th place. Tony Maskett finished 9th. A good reward for regular hard work in training. David Mack, Jamie’s brother, was one of the few to return a pb in the blustery conditions. His time was 24.30.

This week sees the Southern Inter-Counties races at Biggleswade. Gemma Holloway leads the Club challenge in the under 20 age group. Six more from Brenda Stone’s training group make the journey, Harry Parker and Finley Lowe in the under 13 boys, Amber Pullinger and Hayley Instance in the under 15 girls, Taylor Newell in the under 15 boys and Holly Dowsett-Ward in the under 13 girls. All are hoping to lead the County to team success.
