THE Salisbury Schools Mini Marathon benefitted from lots of volunteers and supporters, who all helped make the day a memorable one for the competitors, writes Vasen Moodley.

The following CoSARC juniors took part: Rory Marks, Lawrie Holmes, Jack Diffey, Humphrey Habert (year three and four boys fourth), Sophie Earl (year five and six girls 12th), Indigo Badger (year five and six girls 16th), Martha Makin (year five and six girls 21st), James Chant (under-11 boys 10:20).

The first Southern Athletics League match was held in Gillingham, Kent. CoSARC fielded a small but supreme team of athletes, who did not let the heat of the day prevent them from turning out some excellent performances across a range of disciplines.

Richard Davidson earned a well deserved PB in the hammer. Despite being light on numbers CoSARC (pictured) still managed a solid third place.

A handful of CoSARC athletes acquitted themselves very well in the Winchester Open Track Meet. Their results were: Thomas Dewey 3000m 9:35 PB by 23 seconds, Katie Clements 3000m 12:45:90, Lilli Clements-Champion javelin 19.20m.

There were a handful of well earned PBs at parkrun over the weekend. Salisbury parkrun was run on a warm, dry morning. PBs went to Tony Brown 23:37, Vanessa Maple 23:54, Jane Knight 26:18. Lisa Marie ran a PB at the picturesque Moors Valley parkrun in 25:01.

On a hot morning with clear blue skies, Art Mitchell 07:45 and Olivia Barnett 07:48 scorched round Churchill Gardens Junior parkrun.
