Posted: 20th Apr 2021 by Kate Dickinson
On a sunny Saturday in Sutcliffe Park south London Ashford Leisure Trust Talented Athletes Jacqueline Benson and Jonathan Hobbs with UK’s top junior, Millie Morris stepped out of lockdown into a Covid secure Cambridge Harriers series of 3000 metre walks.
With the removal of the race walk from the main Kent Championships in May the trio put their disappointment behind them, and were like greyhounds in the starting gates for their first track race for a year.
In race two ,Geography student , Jacqueline lead nearly all the way to come second, in 15 minutes 41.55 seconds for a new Under 23 women’s AAC record.
In the third race , Mathematician, Jonathan Hobbs also improved his best for a Senior club record of 13 minutes 42.93 seconds, while Millie took a colossal 74 seconds of her time with 15 minutes 19.17 seconds for an Under 20 women’s club record to go with her 10km record set a month ago.
With the Covid restrictions affecting us all, these talented athletes have trained on their own for the majority of the last year, and their dedication is starting to pay off.
Well Done to all involved.
