There were some good performances on Sunday from both young and old Ryston Runners at the East Anglian League fixture in Ipswich.

Two athletes came away with personal bests in all their events. Mia Moore in the Under 13 Girls ran 2:39.2 in the 800m, 14.4 in the 100m and reached 3.72m in the Long Jump. George Evans in the U11 Boys ran 13.8 in the 80m, bagged 2.85m in the Long Jump and 3.17 in the Shot Putt.

It was a really good day in the sandpit for Kit Howlett and David MacQueen, both setting impressive new PBs.

Kit jumped 4.66m, a 15cm improvement, in the U13 Boys to come second; David jumped 3.92m to win the U11 Boys. David also PB’d in the 600m (2:02.7) and Kit achieved a PB of 5.36m with the Shot.

Also performing well in the Long Jump were Gareth Hunt (5.72m, 2nd Senior Man), Gabrielle Clare (3.72m), and Bea Honeybone (3.71m).

Thea Howlett was pleased to achieve a PB by 0.7secs (27.6) in only her second 200m of the season, coming back strongly from an injury incurred in April.

She also set a new PB of 8.62m in the Shot Putt. Liam Clare ran a personal best in the 75 Hurdles to take second (14.5secs). Gareth Hunt ran a PB of 4:38.9 in the 1500m to finish second in the senior men’s event, and Rebecca Tuff threw a new PB in the Hammer (18.52m). William Evans (U13B) in his first ever competition for Ryston performed well in the Long Jump and Javelin.

Thanks to all the other athletes who competed and also to the helpers who officiated.

Hancock Handicap: Fastest male over the 5-mile course was Callum Stanforth 27:41; fastest female Lorena Latisaite 33:52. Six athletes ran sub-30 mins, including Nic Bensley whose 28:53 gave him an impressive age grading of 82%.
