Soggy start to the track season at Footes Lane

Soggy start to the track season at Footes Lane
18 Apr

The glorious weather that had been forecast did not materialise at Footes Lane for the Intertrust Pre-Season Open on Sunday. Although it did stunt some of the performances – as did the absentees due to Easter holidays – there were still some good competitive bouts and solid early performances.

Toby Glass went straight under the 60sec mark in the U17 400m hurdles – something which he has only done once before-  with 59.9.

In the 1500m, U15 Eliza Mason took the honours and was less than 2sec outside her PB, having front-run the majority of the race following Summer Woodhead’s striking first lap.

The sprint hurdles saw a PB and strong season opener for U13 Ben Solway who posted a 13.2sec clocking for the 75mH.

The highlight in the field was Island Games fifth placer James Bougourd starting his season with a solid 52.34m as he aims to build on his maiden year in the sport.
