TWO new club 1,500m records proved the icing on the cake for City of Salisbury after its track and field athletes triumphed against stiff opposition in the Wessex Young Athletes’ League match at Bournemouth.

The league win followed a series of good points earned across the board, with performances such as a big new personal best for Lukas Bailey also at 1,500m enough to produce a great overall result.

Bea Wood, in her first year as an under 15, won her middle distance race with more than 200m to spare, clocking an excellent 4:37.9. Not only did her run set a new mark for her age group but it also broke the under 17s' and under 20s' records too.

In the British Athletics League Premiership, Jaymee Domoney took another step up the ladder with a 3:53.8 performance to improve the club’s indoor and outdoor records at the distance, as well as beating the national qualification standard for the English Schools Athletics Championships later in the season.

On the Isle of Wight In the newly launched Needles cross country half-marathon, described by the organisers as one of the country’s toughest, the club had four runners who were up to the challenge.

Craig Murphy was quickest, finishing in 1:49.14, and then came Mel Murphy in 2:26.31, Jane Whiteley 2:26.32 and Colin Martin 2:42.20.

Meanwhile, Salisbury parkrun celebrated its second anniversary on Saturday morning when a near-record 589 runners and walkers completed the 5k course at Churchill Gardens.

Among those attending were Elin Maurin and Richard Powell, who soon after finishing the run were due to marry nearby.

Fastest on the day was City of Salisbury’s Christopher Melville in 17.52 minutes. Fastest lady was Jo Meek of Winchester AC in 18.37.
