Just three Harriers took part in the County T&F Championships this weekend at the excellent Macclesfield track.

The first competitor to take to the track was Ewan MacNab (U13B) competing in the heats of the 200m.  Ewan qualified from the heats with 31.1s and improved his time to a fine 30.06s (PB) in the final to place 6th in the county.

Chris Larkin (U17B) entered the high jump in the morning session of day 1, and equalled his PB jumping 1m55 and placing fourth overall.  Chris saved his best performance of the weekend for the 3000m later in the afternoon.  Taking on a strong a talented field, Chris took 29s off his PB to cross the line in 9m20.00s with a fine sprint finish to pick up the silver medal.

Luke Southerton (U17B) was the final competitor on the first day from our club.  Luke also jumped well with a best leap of 5m37, placing 6th in the county.

Chris Larkin was the only Harrier competing on Day 2, and he picked up two more county medals to come away with 3 medals from 4 events.  In the triple jump he jumped 10m83 to pick up the bronze medal, and in the 1500 Steeplechase (run without a water jump due to technical difficulties at the track) he placed 2nd to pick up his second silver medal of the championships.

Well done to all who took part, and a special mention to all of the club officials who gave up their whole weekends to make the annual championships a smooth running success!
