Hello everyone from Race Report Land. I hope you all had a lovely Sunday (and, for those of you who were at last night’s Social & Awards evening – a quiet Sunday). Neil and I enjoyed a gentle stroll and refreshment from the Black Horse Inn in Chesham this afternoon, making use of our Chiltern Harriers AC 10% discount, which proved a great way to round off the weekend. (Other establishments are, of course, available!)
Chiltern Harriers had another good meeting in the second fixture of the four-match Youth Development League on Saturday. Conditions were good at Hillingdon and there were some excellent performances by the Chiltern youngsters who finished third from eight clubs.
There was another spectacular set of performances by Chiltern Harriers youngsters at Watford on Wednesday, all in 800m.
It was a mild and still evening perfect for middle distance running. From the 32 Chiltern runners 25 ran PBs.
Hertfordshire AA have had two elements of their county track and field championships this month.

It’s a pre-Pednor report today, folks. Looking forward to seeing a number of you at the Tennis Club later for what will be a great event, as ever, I am sure. And once again it’s been a successful weekend for Chiltern Harriers in road races.
The BUCS Championships took place at Bedford over the Bank Holiday weekend.
