Record Setting at Biggleswade AC's Track & Field Open

Last month Biggleswade Athletic Club’s annual Track and Field Open event took place, with a jam-packed schedule across the disciplines and age/gender categories. Held on Saturday 23rd September, the event saw athletes both local and from further afield come and compete at the home of BAC - Sandy Athletic Track. This was also the chance for our own athletes to vie for the Club’s annual championship trophies.

Highlights from the day included two National records; Dave Watson from Warrington equaled the Welsh M65 3000m record with a time of 11:33.8secs and Richard Phelan from Huntingdon, the Irish record for M60 Pole Vault, recording a height of 2.62m.

In addition, new Club records were set by BAC’s young athletes. In the field events, Ross Bone achieved 39.89m in the Under 11 Boys Vortex, Ariana Lewis jumped a distance of 4.20m in the Under 11 Girls Long Jump, Bradley Cant threw 23.75m in the 1kg Discus and Leonie Brunning jumped 5.09m in the Under 23 Women Long Jump. Whilst on the track, Nathania Lewis ran 12.05secs in the 80m. Club championship results below:
