The British Masters’ Indoor Track and Field Championships took place at Lee Valley Athletics Centre in North London over the weekend and featured five Ryston Runners.

David Lane, trying indoor competition for the first time, in the M50 category placed fifth in his two horizontal jumps (LJ 4m 53; TJ 9m 28) and sixth in his sprints (60m 8.96; 200m 30.28). He pronounced himself satisfied with achieving close to his best performances in all four events.

Dan Yellop in his first Masters’ indoor championships, competed on the Saturday in the M35 60m and 400m, placing fifth in the former, just missing out on a medal in the latter, run as timed heats, in which he achieved 54.26.

Gaye Clarke, with a knee injury, limited her competition to two cautious events, placing fourth in Long Jump with 3m 87 and second in High Jump with 1m 27.

A second place was also achieved by Cath Duhig in the W60 3000m racewalk.

Peter Duhig, still struggling for comeback form after several setbacks, had a lacklustre run in the M65 1500m on Saturday, though still placed fourth. A better 800m on Sunday brought the same placing but by a closer margin, 2:54.09, meaning he just missed bronze by a couple of seconds.
