Rotherham Harriers & Athletics Club
Strong Turnout at Graves Park

Sheffield's Graves Park provided the backdrop for the second fixture in the South Yorkshire Cross country League for the2013/4 season on Sunday with Rotherham Harriers hoping to consolidate their leading position in the senior events and improve on their third position in the juniors. The Harriers were represented by 48 athletes as 500 runners from 19 clubs fought out the places in races from Under 11 age groups to Vet Men Over 65. A very strong squad of senior men provided the club's two winners as Richard Harris (34:03) was victorious in the Over 40 category and Rob Tintinger (27:41) in the Over 65 race. Steph Burns (26:11) was unable to repeat her win in the Ladies Race as she was beaten into third place by guest runner and GB international Laura Weightman who took the honours ahead of former England international Julia Jagger.

Grace Harris (13:42) and Declan Mullane (6:44) both improved on their third place finishes last time out to take 2nd places in the U13 Girls and U11 Boys respectively with Ryan Beale running a strong race to take another 2nd place finish in the Under 17 Men''s race. Matthew Stevens (15:38) was 3rd in the U13 boys and Kane Smith (16:14) repeated this feat in the U15 Boys. Mary Jenkinson (28:06) continued to show impressive progress as she took a personal best 6th place overall in the senior Women's race to be 2nd U20 woman home and Jess Mangham (29:23)was another athlete in fine form as she placed 11th overall in the same race to be 3rd U20 woman to finish. Janet Hindley (30:38) and Phillipa James (31:36) were 2nd and 3rd home in the Vet 45 ladies category to complete a pleasing total of 12 podium places for the Harriers.

Particularly pleasing was the strong turnout in the younger age groups with 9 under 11 girls representing the club and the U13 Girls and Boys packing well in the top places to score well for the team.
