Middlesex 10k Road Championships, Victoria Park, Sunday 29/9/2019

Following a one minute silence for Tashan Daniels, which was subsequently warmly applauded by everyone present, Hillingdon AC athletes went about the business of attempting to win medals in the 5 team categories in the Middlesex County 10 Km RoadChampionships, report Andy Torrance and Doug Milsom.

Suffice to say following some very fine performances from the 17 men and 12 ladies who ran, the team results show that Hillingdon AC won medals in EVERY category and we were the only Middlesex club to achieve that.

Following on from his fine performance in the Great North Run, Abdishakur Abdulle (30:28) won individual Gold, for the third consecutive year, 9 seconds clear of Mohamud Aadan of TVH.  Other HAC individual medallists were Catriona Paterson (40:16) 2nd Middlesex Lady, Karen O’Rourke (46:08) and Zoe Dobbs (47:34) 1st and 2nd W45, and Doug Milsom (54:20) who was surprised that they awarded a medal for the M80!  Abdishakur and Catriona also won prizes for the 1st Male and 3rd Female finishers in the open race.

The following Hillingdon AC athletes won Middlesex team race medals, which are to be presented at a later date:

Gold: Senior Men: Abdishakur Abdulle (30:28), Aramias Zeration (32:35) and James Laing (34:13);

This is also the third consecutive year that HAC have won this title. 

Silver: Senior Ladies: Catriona Paterson (40:16), Hannah Wells (41:59) and Ciara Williams (44:22);

Silver: M50 Men: Richard Jenkin (41:53), David Smith (42:23) and John Bignell (45:03);

Bronze: Masters Ladies: Karen O’Rourke (46:08), Zoe Dobbs (47:34) and Melanie Spencer (48:17);

Bronze: M40 Men: Martin Bateman (37:07), Paul Leppard (38:04) and Iain Betson (43:47).

Altogether a very successful morning out in Hackney for the club.  The Middlesex AA has suggested we arrive at Claybury with a security van to pick up all the prizes.

Thanks to the County officials and to Victoria Park Harriers & Tower Hamlets AC for a well organised event and for producing the individual results and medals so soon after the finish.  They even managed to postpone the heavy rain which had been forecast!
