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.

CITY of Salisbury runner Jef Hutchby proved his doubters wrong when he completed Sunday's Rock 'n Roll Marathon in Liverpool.

Six months ago the Salisbury parkrun stalwart, who by his own admission was unfit and overweight, set himself a rigorous training schedule many believed he would be unable to maintain, to be followed by the challenge of a city marathon.

At the Merseyside event he finally achieved his goal, defying his doubters and running without a pause in the warm conditions to finish in a good four hours and 57 minutes – slower than his personal best set decades ago, but a fine performance to build on.

Meanwhile, marathon enthusiast Phil Perry continued his 2017 odyssey, completing his sixth marathon of the year in the hot and hilly 26-miler at Dorchester. His time of 3:51.01 compared well with his best set at Manchester in April.

Mike White looked to be in good shape at the same event when a calf injury struck at 21 miles. He did well to finish after walking the final five miles to still beat four hours.

Other Salisbury finishers were Di Cross 4:39.11, Liz Roberts 4:46.02 and Charlotte Boardman 4:48.02.

Pete Dengel made his marathon debut in Edinburgh where he clocked 3:44.

In the Casterbridge half-marathon Peter Manning was the club’s quickest in 1:43.11. He was followed by Lizzie Guasch 2:25.14, Andy Robbins 2:25.29 and Marie Manning 3:04.23.

CITY of Salisbury’s Stuart Holloway repeated his high class second place of last year in the Netley 10k league race when on Sunday he finished in a fine 32 minutes and 52 seconds on the tail of winner Abdi Mahamed of host club Southampton AC.

Just 14 seconds separated the pair towards the end of the twisting, three lap course alongside Southampton Water, and Holloway had his quarry in sight for the final 600m to the line, but the gap proved unbridgeable.

Holloway started the day in third place in the Hampshire League’s men’s individual overall standings, and he could still improve on that in the final road league fixture of the year, the Lordshill 10k on June 25.

Peter Manning was next of the Salisbury club to finish in 42.45, and he was followed by Craig Murphy 43.26 and Steve Mitchell 44.46, these four comprising the men’s A team.

In the women’s event, Jo-Anne Gready made a welcome return to league racing with a good 43.30  the clock and with Mel Murphy 48.08 and Ali Holloway 50.02, this was the trio to score league team points.

Liz Roberts was next in 51.33 and Jane Whiteley completed the set with 52.59.

The men’s B team comprised Richard Larcombe in 45.17, Phil Perry 45.43, Jon Kershaw 46.12 and Jef Hutchby 50.45. Colin Martin made up the 14 strong squad with 62.21

He ran strongly to an excellent second place overall and to within touching distance of a podium finish in the season-long competition.

After a tussle with Winchester AC’s Toby Lambert on the toughest hill on the course at seven miles, Holloway sped away on the descent and by the finish had pulled 40 seconds ahead, to cross the line in an excellent 53.38 minutes - just 32 seconds down on the winner, Joe Morwood of Aldershot and Farnham.

Angus Paton was well inside the top 100 in 67.51, and with Andy Budgell’s 71.39 and Peter Manning’s 72.09, this was the quartet to score points for the Salisbury men’s A team.
