A still, mild evening made for good conditions at the latest Watford Open. Most athletes ran 800m but there were also some good 400m and two Chiltern athletes in the BMC Gold Standard part of the evening.
Three Chiltern Harriers young athletes were taking part for Buckinghamshire Schools in the prestigious English Schools Track and Field Championships at Gateshead last weekend.

Our fourth match of the season was at Watford on Saturday 9th July. Weather conditions were fairly good: occasional blustery wind, warm but not hot, no rain!
The Southern Women’s League disbanded at the end of last season and most of the remaining teams joined the Southern Athletics League (SAL). At the very last moment, Chiltern Harriers also managed to join the SAL, forming a composite team with Bedford & County ‘B’. Bedford and County’s ‘A’ team are in the top flight (Division 1). Our composite team are at the lowest level, in Division 3 North.
