To run in the English Schools Championships one has to be of a high standard to qualify so, with that in mind, it was good to see two Highgate Harriers competing in the event at Sports City on the 9th of July. Ellen Donald, who has already run a personal best time of 4:40.25 for 1500m this year, was 11th in the Final of the Under 20 women's race in 4:46.96.

An Under 15 boy Abdi Kamara ran a swift 100m in 11.75 to come fifth in heat 3, but one must point out he did a personaL best time of 11.6 when coming second in the Final at the Berkshire Schools Championships on the 11th of June.

At the other end of the age scale at Battersea on the 4th of July, Highgate Harrier Alex Davidson, now over 60, ran 5:32.40 for a mile in a Serpentine RC club race.
