It was a Young Athletes day! Both individual winners; Heather Butcher and Callum Wilkinson were under seventeen. In addition Callum’s brother George 11.21 delighted to break twelve minutes for the mile and Dan Spinks 12.01 was so close to doing the same. George now has the eleven minute standard in his sights.
Callum Wilkinson set a pb and extended his unbeaten sequence to four since winning the October race last year. His 7.15 opening mile decimated the field and although he slowed a little after that he was never in danger of being caught. ‘Super Vet’ Arthur Thomson maintaining sub ten minute mile pace was the club’s next man home, a little over a minute behind was John Ralph who is currently getting in the miles in for his London marathon walk.
Helen Middleton refreshed from her sabbatical looked good and wasn’t too far off in third place.

NW London YA's Cross Country League 01-02-2014

On a dry sunny day, the ground was deceptively heavy and muddy underfoot with strong wind to add to the conditions.

Despite running alone in 3rd for almost half the race, Youcef Harizi managed a strong finish to secure 2nd placing behind Tom Butler from Barnet in M17 race. Caroline Dunnet determinedly fought for her 4th place in the W17 race.
Both Caroline and Youcef had competed at the Middlesex Schools Champs at Harrow School just two days before hand in very poor conditions so both must have been really tired. (both will be in contention for English Schools selection)

In the G13 race Lucy Corry finished strongly in 7th position whilst Joe Heather B11, in only his 2nd Cross Country race, had a great sprint finish to capture 10th place. Newcomer year 5, Leon Michel, missed out on a warm up but fought hard to complete the course.
B13 Joe Rowson and still with an extra year in this age group, continued his fine form to finish in a strong 6th place.

A great day for EHAC athletes at THREE venues

24th Jan 2014 12:25:40
At the South of England Indoor Championships

Probably the best performance of the day was in the Senior Men's 60m SEAN SAFO-ANTWI where won in a World Class time of 6.59s. Not to be outdone CHIJINDU UJAH (23) followed him home in 6.62s (heat 6.61)

There were a number of 'Star' performances elsewhere with Amber Hornbuckle in the U15 age group 60 metre Hurdles which she won in a great time of 9.22 seconds ranking her no 1 in the UK. In the same age group SARA JACOB came 2nd in the 800m in 2m 16.35s earning a well deserved Silver medal.

In the under 20 sprint finals Reuben Arthur took 3rd place in 6.81 in his first year in this age group. Ama Pipi was 4th with a lifetime best of 7.59.

Not to be outdone Eoin Pierce was 3rd in a fine Senior Men's 1500 metre final. Georgia Green leapt 5.44 metres to win Silver in the W20 Long Jump. Ross Hajipanayi took 2nd place when he leapt a personal best of 2.70 metres in the B15 Pole Vault.

Enfield Race Walking League

The 2014 series got off to a cracking start with 48 walkers taking part EHAC�s young star Callum Wilkinson set the pace closely followed by Fransisco Reis (M50) and Ian Richards (M65). The latter was forced to give ground early on, but Reis, preparing for the forthcoming World Masters Indoor championships refused to let the leader go and dogged him most of the way, forcing Wilkinson to a pb by over two minutes.

Chingford League Cross Country at Victoria Park

A great turn out at the muddy Hackney Marshes. EHAC had three individual winners which now leaves Caroline Dunnett (W17) in contention for an overall individual league victory and the B13/W17 teams a good chance to win the overall team challenge.
Excellent performances from the youngsters. B15 Mario Efstathiou was victorious in the combined 15/17 race after trailing behind 3rd place fellow athlete, M17 Youcef Harizi, for majority of race. Mario and 2nd place finisher had a Sprint finish battle. In B13, Luke Bluemink earned a 1st place victory with team mate Joe Rowson just behind in 3rd.

Altogether a great weekend for the club.
