SNHAC launched their Scott's Travel 10k Midweek League Campaign with a 3rd place out of the 8 teams in Division 3. This was a virtual fixture with athletes logging a time on a course of their choosing.

Quickest, and finishing 4th overall, was Chris Westcott who ran a time of 38.39 (2nd Vet finisher). Adam Searle (44.02) and Andy Robson (44.17) finished "next to each other" in 20th and 21st. Isaac Whitten (45.39) just finished in front of Trevor Mason (45.59) who were 25th and 26th respectively. Paul Spicer was 31st in 47.13, Paul Pickard was 45th (56.10), Bob Whitten was 51st (61.27), Mark Pinney 54th (66.29) and Graham Spicer 57th (72.01).

In the ladies race Alex Gates was the first to finish with her time of 49.59 seeing her come in 7th place. Jenny Cotter and Chris Feely came in equal 11th in 52.14.

For two athletes there was more competition to come. Alex Gates and Trevor Mason both completed the Hertfordshire Half Marathon. The course from Knebworth House was hilly and challenging and the weather was hot but they finished in 1 hour 47 (37th lady) for Alex and 1 hour 44 (192nd man) for Trevor. A great achievement by both in tough conditions! There were over 1100 finishers in the race.

The next round of the Scott's Travel Midweek League is also virtual and runs from the 14th-27th June.

The first league match for two years saw 21 Stevenage and North Herts Athletes travel to Harrow on Sunday. Hot, dry with little wind, the conditions were ideal for the Club’s U20 and U17 athletes to see what shape they were in, shake off the cobwebs and enjoy a’ socially distanced’ event for the first time. Up against Shaftesbury Barnet, Thames Valley Harriers, Hillingdon, and a composite team from Harrow / Dacorum and Tring the competition was fierce but fun.

There were wins for U17’s Jessica Astill in the 200m 25.4 (entry standard for national competitions) and Oliver Humphrey in the 100m hurdles 14.95 with U20’s Georgia Shephard- Gazely winning the javelin 29m78. U20 Joel Evans was second in the 400m hurdles 56.5 (entry standard for national competitions) with Ed Laws winning the B event 58.70. Ed was in action also in the 110H finishing 3rd in 15.66 with Will Lawler winning the B event in 15.72. Also competing were U20’s Jacob Kinchin-Smith 100,400 and LJ - 11.44, 52.61 and 5m99, Bhuvanesh Ramanauth and Alex Pickard 100m -11.54 and 11.88 respectively, Joseph Felthouse 800m - 2.14.0, Clare Hudson 100m - 13.45, Delphine Lehrfeund 200m - 27.9, Amelia Hobbs 3000m -12.43.2, Emily Knight 100H - 15.84, Libby Taylor hammer -45m79 and Maddie Waite high jump -1m50.
