LEI Champions were:

Harrington Leake (M10)

Ethan Tebbutt (M14)

Imogen Wilson (W16)

Finn Lydon (M16)

Glynn Smith (M70)

Other members ran well including Ian Wilson who won the hotly contested M45S and Eric Porter retaining his M70S title. It was good to see some of our newer members competing at a level A event.

LEI Junior Success at Peter Palmer Relays

Peter_palmer_2014Congratulations to the LEI juniors who won the Joan George Trophy (the competition for younger teams) at the Peter Palmer Relays this weekend. Team kaLEIdoscope was also placed third overall. Our other team (LEIsurely juniors) came ninth out of 20 teams.

joan_george_trophyWe had 14 juniors from M/W12 to M/W18 running with the competition starting at 4:30am. This meant that the first 3 legs of the 6 leg relay were run in the dark.

All team members did really well and we won some individual prizes as well with Nick Wilson fastest boy on leg 3 and Hannah Cox fastest girl on leg 6.
