It was a rollercoaster ride for Nene Valley Harriers athletes in the Kettering Charity Cup at Wicksteed Park.

Runners from the club won two gold medals plus a silver and a bronze.

Flo Brill and Megan Ellison continued their successes with resounding victories in the mud.

Brill won the 3k under-13 race by 30 seconds in a time of 12:01. Fellow Harrier Katie Taster finished fifth.

At the age of 15, Ellison was up against many athletes a year older than her in the under-17 race but she won by a margin of 27 seconds with a 21:20 clocking over the 4.9k course.

Younger brother Ethan took third place in the boys’ under-15 race.

Freddie House claimed silver in the boys’ under-11 category.

Five senior men from Nene Valley were in action and first home was Jevan Robertson who finished fourth.

Meanwhile, Ruth Jones and Yvonne Scarrott narrowly missed out on prizes in a high-class field in the Wolverton five-mile road race.

Jones finished 11th woman and fourth over-35 in 33:10 as Scarrott’s time of 34:08 was good enough to see her finish fourth over-45 and 17th lady overall.

A group of Harriers took part in the open indoor track meeting at Sheffield.

Under-15 Megan Williams, in her first indoor season, equalled her personal best with two out of four long jumps, recording 4.20m, then took her 3kg shot putt all-time best to 6.35m. In the 150m she set a new best run of 22.49.

Under-20 athlete Lucas Fidler also recorded two personal best performances with times of 1:35.3 in the 600m and 41.66s in the 300m.
