BACAC is one of the leading athletic clubs in the South and East of England & we cater for athletes of all ages and abilities.
A small contingent of Bedford and County athletes made the trip to Loughborough to compete in the Charnwood A.C. open on 16th September. Nathan Cox came second in the fastest 200m race of the night, clocking 22.76. Nathan also ran 11.50 over 100m. Under 17 Daniel Harding-Forbes won his 100m race in 11.85, and clocked 23.81 whilst coming second in his 200m. Fellow under 17, Jasmine Wilkins, won her 100m race in 12.85, and also ran 26.58 over 200m. All the sprint races were run into a stiff headwind. Jamie Webster won a somewhat bizarre 800m that included a close shave with an official and a trolley (fortunately no one was seriously injured!) in 2:00.18.
Several Bedford and County athletes were in action at the Milton Keynes Jumps and Throws Meeting on 13th September. The highlight of the day came in the Javelin, where Sadie Werrett not only won the Javelin competition, but also set a new Under 15 Girls club record of 39.09, which exceeds Olivia Da Costa's 37.86, set in 2009. Sadie also won the women's Shot Put with a throw of 9.14. Well done to Sadie, who moves into 5th place in this year's U15 Girls UK rankings for the Javelin. At the same meeting, Graeme Packman threw 30.44 in the Discus, and Richard Martin threw 53.33 in the hammer.
