Rowden wins again

Daniel Rowden was in superb form last evening in Zagreb. Racing over 800m in a high quality field Daniel underlined his status as the British number one, comfortably beating the next three Britains behind him on this year's domestic ranking lists. The pacemaker went through 400m in 50.39 secs, with Dan ensuring he was well positioned at all times and in a tremendously strong finish took 6m out of the field in the last 60m. Dan's time of 1m 44.09 secs is the fastest run by any British athlete since 2012 and ranks 3rd on this season's world rankings. Of course it also updates his own Woodford Club record.

Abigail Reid England Vest

On the 14th March Abigail Reid, in her first All-England Schools XC and representing Essex, finished an outstanding 7th from a field of 360 in the Junior Girls race  which earned her selection to represent England at Falkirk in the Home Countries International the following weekend. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, the race was cancelled. The ESAA decided to award the England vests to all those selected and Abigail only recently received it, along with the England badge. A fantastic achievement for a bottom year athlete who achieved her main aim for the season.
