Havering Athletics Club 

Havering hosted a county athletics Championships for the first time in many years when the Essex County Track & Field Relays were held at Hornchurch Stadium on Friday 30th June.  A well-attended evening saw club teams win 14 medals, seven of them gold. The club have agreed to host the County Cross country relays at Stubbers in October. - The club Under13 relay teams were invited to take part in the Club Connect relays held as part of the Muller Anniversary Games meeting at the Olympic Stadium on 9th July. The U13 girls team marked the occasion with a new club 4x100m record, in placing fourth, while the U13 boys squad were seventh. The young athletes and their coaches had a fantastic day & were supported by a group of their teammates, whose tickets were funded by a Jack Petchey Foundation grant. - Four club athletes won medals in the recent English Schools Championships. Max Law won silver in the javelin, which won him selection for the English Schools team who competed in Dublin, where he again finished second. There were three bronze medals: Jessica Mitchell in the 3000m in a new club record, Mayi Hughes in the triple jump and Alice Brown in the junior discus. Five other club members also represented Essex at these prestigious championships. - With one fixture remaining, the club's senior men's British League team are one step away from promotion to National Division Two after victory in their recent fixture at Bedford. Both Youth Development League squads (U13/U15s, and U17/U20s) have confirmed their Southern Premier Division status after a good season and the Eastern Young Athletes League team top the table with two matches remaining. - An 8-strong club team were the overall winners of the Spitfire Scramble 24 hour relay race held at Hornchurch Country Park on 15th/16th July.

 Havering 90 Joggers/Parkrun

- Our main event in July was the Spitfire Scramble, which is a 24 hour race that starts midday Saturday and finishes midday Sunday. The event took place in Hornchurch Country Park around a six miles loop. Overall the event was a great a success and a plus for Havering sport and put us on the map in terms of endurance racing. The 800 or so present had a great time camping and running overnight and have vowed to return for the fifth edition next year, which will be bigger and even better.

 - Havering '90 had a few teams in this race and won a few trophies. We won the male pairs trophy, came third in the female pairs and second in female teams of 3
