Midsummer Open, 24/7/13

Jane Horder’s fine form continued with an impressive hurdling display as Cheltenham Harriers hosted the third of their Midsummer Open meetings. Having set a over 55s British 80m hurdles record of 13.10 seconds last weekend, Horder ran her fastest time since 2008 with a 13.0 clocking. However, her performance is not eligible for the national record, as only times set with electronic timing and wind readings are permitted, so the European indoor champion had to make to do with a Harriers club record. Fellow hurdler Derrick Lord also lowered his own vet 50 100m hurdles club record to 20.9 whilst Darren Jordan set a new club vet 40 mile record of 4:44.6.

Adam Peachey posted the fastest 100m time with an 11.4 second victory and Dan Owen won the men’s 800m in 1:57.1 as he narrowly missed out on a personal best. In the mile Rhys Park was the first under 20 runner home in 4:25.7 and Jess White was the leading under 15 girl in 5:35.8. Grace Pitman impressed in the under 13 events with an 800m win in 2:51.9. In the long jump under 17 athlete Linton Gardiner won with 6.24m, with Nick Sherry the top under 15 with a distance of 5.59m.
