Congratulations to Etienne Maughan who broke the club's Under 20 Women's 100m Hurdles record in the NAL match at the weekend.  Etienne's new record is 14.25 seconds.  Congratulations also to Glen Kerr, who broke his own M45 Hammer club record with a throw of 52.22 metres at the SEAA Championships on 4th June.

Watford Open

Ben Davies produced a 3:44.22 1500m personal best in the BMC Gold Standard race at Watford last night, finishing second to Olympian, Elliot Giles.  Congratulations to Ben on a fantastic performance, which may have been the second fastest 1500m ever by a Bedford and County member.

We got off to a great start to the National Athletics League (NAL) season, with a second-place finish in our home match yesterday (Sunday 11th June).  Competing against Belgrave Harriers, Bristol and West, Cardiff, The City of Liverpool, The City of Portsmouth, Herts Phoenix and Herne Hill Harriers, Bedford and County came second overall, coming second in the men's match (by only 3 points), and finishing third in the Women's Match.

Congratulations to Raph Bouju who set a new club Senior Men's 100m record of 10.02 seconds whilst running at the EAP meeting in Geneva at the weekend.  Raph is getting very close to breaking the 10.00 second barrier.  Although Raph is now running in Holland, and his performances are not on the Power of Ten, 10.02 would put him twelfth on the UK all-time list.

Congratulations to four Bedford and County athletes who won awards at the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire County Championships on 13th and 14th May.  They were:

  • Riley Johnson (winner of SM 100m) - the 100 yd Silver Cup
  • Aston Lockwood (winner of SM 200m)  - the 200 yd Silver Cup
  • Eleanor Smith (winner of U15 Girls 800m) - The Hickson Trophy
  • Etienne Maughan (winner of the SW 100m Hurdles with a Championship Best performance) - the Custom Enclosure Shield.

127 Bedford and County athletes registered for the main meeting, and 35 for the 1500m (run on a different day). 

For all the Bedford and County winners, and the full results see Bedfordshire County Championships.

As part of the club’s recognition of Alex and Rosemary’s success and contribution to athlete development upon their retirement, it has been decided to award a bursary of £100 for the next 5 years starting in May 2023.

We are pleased to announce that Eleanor Smith is the first recipient of the bursary. 

Congratulations to Lyla Danobrega, who broke her own club Under 17 and Senior Women's 1500m Steeplechase record on Saturday 29th April at the West Suffolk Steeplechase Festival with a time of 5:21.00.
