Hope we didn't miss anyone. Let us know if we have.


Up in the Lee valley indoor arena Charlie Grice and Dan Stepney were seeing what winter speed they had in running in the South of England Indoor 1500m Championship. Dan ran a PB 4.00 in the heat but came up just short in making it to the final, a good run all the same. Charlie having the luxury of a straight final in the Under 20 men’s 1500m slowly squeezed the life out of the opposition winning in a time of 3.54
