CITY of Salisbury dominated the Wiltshire County Athletics Championships at Tidworth, taking 13 gold medals, 13 silvers and 15 bronze medals.

For good measure, Bea Wood broke the 1,500m under 15s championship record with a run of 4.41.9 minutes while Molly Hole set new figures with a 1.63m high jump.

Skye Allen scored a winning double in the 100 and 200m sprints in 13.2 and 26.93 seconds, respectively while Amelia Watling also looked promising in the under 13s' 100m, winning in 14.4 seconds, and took bronze in the long jump with 14.4m.

Ottilie Knight had a good day winning the under 17s javelin with 37.85m and the triple jump with 9.83m.

In the men’s seniors, Andy Holme won the 3,000m steeplechase with 10:20.5, and Henry Dix won the under 17s' equivalent in 11:48.8. Josh Hole proved unbeatable in the shot with 11.78m.

Junior international Jake Ness made a low-key return from injury with a bronze in the 200m with 23.94 while a huge personal best 2:07.59 from Greg Herring in the under 15s' 800m earned silver.

Meanwhile, on the road, Stuart Holloway continued his fine form with an emphatic win in the Tewkesbury half-marathon, improving his best to a rapid 70.44 minutes - more than four minutes too good for his nearest challenger.

Jon Kershaw also registered a personal best in the Oxford 10k where he clocked 45.16 minutes.

This Sunday (May 21) sees the penultimate fixture in the Hampshire Road Race League series with a 10k at Netley.

CITY of Salisbury’s Stuart Holloway showed no signs of marathon fatigue when returning to Hampshire Road Race duty at the Alton ten-mile event.

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.

Craig Murphy was next Salisbury finisher in 72.21 to lead the B team also comprising Richard Larcombe 76.33, Stuart Robertson 77.29 and Jon Kershaw 78.10.

Other Salisbury finishers were Matthew Dyer 80.31, Catherine Marsden with a promising 81.20, Jef Hutchby 90.18, Jeremy Mardles 91.03 and Marie Manning 132.15.

Salisbury men’s A team currently stand third in the second division while the club’s ladies’ team are fifth in their table.

Just two fixtures remain before the final positions are decided - the Netley 10k (May 21) and the Lordshill 10k (June 25).

Meanwhile, in the North Dorset marathon, Charlotte Ingram improved her best at the distance by a big margin when she clocked 3:44.35.

CITY of Salisbury’s biggest ever group of runners qualifying for the Virgin Money London Marathon made their mark on Sunday’s outstanding renewal of the race.

The club had 18 finishers, led by the in-form Stuart Holloway, who knocked eight minutes off his previous best at the distance.

World-class professional Daniel Wanjiru won the men’s race in 2:05.48, while the women’s title went to fellow-Kenyan Mary Keitany with 2:17.01.

Among 40,000 starters, Holloway made the most of the cool conditions, going through the 13-mile checkpoint at halfway near Tower Bridge in one hour and 13 minutes. He crossed the finishing on the Mall in an excellent clubrunners’ time of 2:30.41.

James Mills also did well to beat three hours, clocking 2:55.43.

Endurance specialist Phil Smith was timed at 3:04.03, closely followed by Rithy Hy 3:04.49, Nick Cooke 3:15.30, Angus Paton 3:27.38, Andy Budgell 3:38.49, Melanie Murphy 3:44.57, Darren Neale 3:45.26 and Nick Willetts 3:55.48.

In increasingly warm sunshine, James Welsh made the finish in 4:11.00, then came Jane Whiteley 4:28.44, Charlotte Ingram 4:34.32, Charlotte Morton-Haworth 5:06.45, Gavin Barrett also 5:06.45, Chrissy Gorham 5:14.35, Colin Martin 5:24.14 and Marie Manning 6:37.20.

A dedicated quartet of James Ballard, Steve Mitchell, Andy Fallon and Liz Roberts added further to the Salisbury numbers by completing the 26.2 miles in reverse in the official ‘midnight marathon’ running through the night in the hours before the start of the main event.

Meanwhile, closer to home at the Southampton marathon, Peter Callanan recorded a good 3:16.17, with Mike White clipping half a minute off his personal best with 3:30.38. Then came Phil Perry in 3:46.46, Richard Larcombe 3:49.41 and Nick Hudson who reached the finish in five hours despite injury.

In the linked half-marathon, Mike Brewster took second spot in his age group with 1:25.07 followed by Lee Syrett 1:32.00, the improving Jef Hutchby 1:59.47, Hannah Reeves 2:11.21 and Jana Tomblin 2:11.37.
