The races and results come thick and fast during the month of May. We are already 3 races into the East Midlands Grand Prix, with a very successful Silverstone 10k kicking off the series. On the track we have had the Northants/ Leicestershire county Champs.

The Silverstone Grand prix 10k Wednesday May 1st

With entries to the event closed over a month before the race, the 39th Silverstone 10k was always going to be a successful event. The favourable weather conditions led to a decent race, Will Beeston of Tonbridge Harriers 32.09 held off the Kenilworth runner Luke Morgan by 6 seconds. Rachel Doherty 37.26 running for a fast improving Higham Harriers was first lady. Well done to Silson members for turning out in big numbers to support the event.

The Northants & Leics County Track and Field Championships   Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th May

The sun shone on Corby for an excellent weekend of athletics. Only one Silson runner, but Helen Heley earned a mention in Athletics Weekly for her 5000. Running in very hot conditions Helen timed 20.02 to take county vet ladies gold medal. Another well done for the Silson helpers at the event, it was good to be involved.

The Blisworth Friday 5 May 17th

As this is our closest EMGP that Silson runners are allowed to run. A good turnout of green vests is guaranteed, this year was 17. The first 3 Silson runners were closely matched Mark Conway 61st, Chris Coghlan 67th and James Spencer 70th. First lady for Silson was Nichola Green 179th in 36.55.

Banbury 5 Tuesday 21st May

The Banbury 5 although undulating is a popular event and can produce some fast times. Darren Knight headed Silson home in 33.42. Eleanor Rees and David Morley both knocked over two minutes off their previous 5 mile race, timing at 53.16. Results 111th Darren Knight 33.42, 149th Richard Popiel 35.28, 208th Jayne Cooper 39.36, 225 Dave Jarrett 40.56, 239th Sue Torrance 41.51, 274th Madeleine Moutrie 45.03, 278th Sarah De Boer 45.43, 314 Eleanor Rees 53.16, 315 David Morley 53.16.
