Ashford AC’s latest race walking star, Millie Morris, won a well-deserved Silver medal in the British Road Walking Championships on Sunday. Competing in the Under-17 Girls 5km, on the roads of Warwick University, Millie raced to her first national medal in 29 minutes 33 seconds.
Teammate Jacqueline Benson for once did not break any records, but won Bronze in the Under-20 Women’s 10km. Her time of 62 minutes 16 seconds was outside her best set a few weeks ago, but still over a minute faster than her Bronze medal time of last year.
Not to be outdone, training partner Katie Stringer won Silver in the Under 15 girls 3km event.
Ashford walkers are looking to dominate the walking events in the Kent County Athletics Championships on their home track in May, and add to their growing medal collection.
