STUART Holloway propelled his City of Salisbury clubmates towards a string of good performances to end the road racing league season at the Lordshill 10k.

At the front from the off, he battled for much of the distance with Matthew Bennett of the Southampton AC hosts, running strongly all the way round the urban circuit. But at the finish he had to accept a good second place – his third of the campaign – to stop the clock at 33.9 minutes, just 22 seconds from a win.

Many runners struggled with the warm humidity, but Mike Brewster held onto his super-vet status by finishing second in his age group with a sterling 36.53, track specialist Andy Holme’s 38.02 and Mark Glanville at 39.26 completing the club's A team.

Quality run of the day came from Ruth Thom who shattered her previous best at the distance with a first-class 40.47, placing her second in her age group and giving the Salisbury club a flying start in the ladies’ team standings.

The versatile Emma Clarke clocked 43.37 and Sarah Brewster made up the scoring trio with 45.26.

The men’s B team comprised Angus Paton in 42.01, Reece Ingram 42.07, Ian Lawrence 42.17 and Peter Manning 43.02.

Mike White and Phil Smith both made swift returns from injury with 43.04 and 43.07 respectively, and they were followed by Andy Budgell in 44.20, Joanne Bailey  44.32, Jon Kershaw 45.22, Steve Mitchell 45.57, Phil Perry 46.17, Charlotte Ingram 46.49, Richard Larcombe 46.57, Tim Phillips 47.42, Catherine Marsden 48.05, Nick Willetts 48.21, Jane Whiteley 54.01, Norbert Weber 55.05, Lisa Milner 55.57, Paul Bellamy 58.59, Colin Martin 63.53, Mel Holloway 65.52 and Marie Manning 76.54.

Winners of the club’s 10k championships were Stuart Holloway and Ruth Thom.

FOUR City of Salisbury young athletes defied sweltering conditions to win regional titles at the South West School championships in Exeter.

Jaymee Domoney won the senior 1,500m gold and Ottilie Knight was best in the intermediates’ javelin.

Among the junior girls, Molly Hole continued her progress, winning both the shot and the high jump, while Bea Wood took the 1,500m.

Also performing well was Skye Allen, who earned a silver medal in the 200m, with Gabrielle Kirkham claiming bronze in the long jump.

With its track and field team depleted by the Exeter event, the Salisbury club might have been expected to turn in a reduced result at the Southern Athletics league fixture in Winchester on the same day – but the small group took to multi-tasking in a big way to produce a remarkable overall win.

Highlights included the performances of Rachel Noble, who won both the long jump and triple jump as well as taking second in the high jump.

Hamish Mundell won the 400m hurdles and was second in the 110m hurdles, the 200m and the high jump.

Emma Clarke competed in no less than 12 events, racking up the points and winning the 2,000m steeplechase.

Further afield, Rithy Hy took ninth place in the international quarter marathon at Phnomh Penh in Cambodia with an excellent 46.06 minutes.

On the Hampshire/Berkshire border in a trail marathon, another event affected by the weekend heat, Phil Perry completed his eighth 26-miler of the year in a competitive 4:57.14.

Lordshill is the venue this coming Sunday for this season’s Hampshire Road Race League showdown which has attracted more than 30 Salisbury runners. The event is also the club’s inaugural 10k road championship.

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 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.
