Welcome to White Horse Harriers


T&F Vets League

We’re half-way through the Vets League season already. Match 2 was held on Wednesday 29th May at Tilsley Park in Abingdon. Our congratulations to Kerry Wilkinson on setting a new W35 club record for 800m, and also to Clare Hazell who bettered her existing 5000m W50 club record!

Late news: Clare Hazell also holds the W50 club record in the 3000m which she set on 2nd July 2023 in Reading on the final Vets Match that year. I was in Ireland that same weekend for a half-marathon, so apologies for this oversight! The club records will be updated accordingly.

An improved turn out at Tilsley Park meant better team results, with the men (a team of 5) finishing in 6th and the ladies (a team of 3) finishing in 7th. This means it’s all to play for in the final two matches, which will both be held in early July.

If we can get more people taking part I’m sure we’ll have fantastic team results, so please check your diaries, peruse the events on offer, and let me know what your preferences are. Don’t worry if you’ve not done athletics before, or even since school. We’ve got Tuesday evening training sessions at Radley in June, so don’t be shy, give it a try!
