DARYLL NEITA LAUNCHES KIDS’ SCHEME – Featured in Athletics Weekly in which DARYLL has unveiled a campaign to increase the activity of primary schoolchildren.

DARYLL who is the current Olympic and World sprint relay medallist visited Beatrix Potter Primary School in Wandsworth last week to launch Active Kids Do Better – a Nike and Discovery Education programme, developed with support from John Moores University, to help teachers increase movement and play throughout the school day.
Research has shown that fewer than one in four young children in the UK get recommended amount of exercise, but the Active Kids Do Better programme offers free resources, games and activities to all UK Primary Schools with teachers able to sign up at activeschoolsdobetter.co.uk online.
Beatrix Potter Primary School is one of the first schools to join the programme and on visiting the school DARYLL said: “It’s amazing to see kids of all ages and abilities having fun and enjoying being more active. It’s so important for health and well-being and even small bite-size chunks of exercise can make a massive difference.”


ROSEMARY BOWSHER, Year 5 teacher at the school, said “The children were very excited to welcome an Olympic medallist to our school! We’re proud to be one of the first schools to sign up, and it was great to be able to show DARYLL how we’re encouraging our pupils to be more active. As a busy teacher, it’s sometimes difficult to find time for fun physical activity out of PE lessons. This programme makes it quick and easy and has given me confidence to build movement into our daily routine.”
Schools will benefit from a raft of resources linked to key areas of the National Curriculum, enabling teachers to introduce quick movement into otherwise sedentary lessons. They include “spell check” – a hopscotch-style playground game – and “clock lunges” – a quick classroom activity to help children get out of their seats while they learn to tell the time.

START FITNESS METROPOLITAN LEAGUE – The final fixture took place last Saturday at Trent Park, with the weather being overcast and the conditions underfoot quite heavy.

Congratulations to all on an excellent season, especially seeing many of our recent new members making their presence felt.

On the day GIANLEO STUBBS U11 made it a clean sweep winning all 5 of the fixtures, he was ably backed all season by THOMAS CADWALLADER, ANDONI AMPHLETT and JAMES BYRNES winning the team result, which meant they are the Under 11 League Champions by a clear 58 points.

Under 11 Girls Team – With ever present EVIE REDPATH and OLIVE HARVEY-DEW finished their highest position of the season in 3rd place, with 9 Girls running of which 4 where recent new members. Their final position of 8th is largely to the first fixture at Claybury where we had no runners, but next season should see the Girls fighting for top honours.

Under 13 Boys Team – Have been consistent all season led by SAMUEL GREENSTEIN and THEO BODEN the team packed well to take 2nd place behind the eventual League winners Woodford Green with Essex Ladies. By beating Herts Phoenix we managed to move above them and become League runners-up.

Under 13 Girls Team – Had a not to good start in which it was hard to recovers, the team had 3 ever presents REBECCA JEFFERY, ANNA MURPHY and LOUISA STAAB finished 6th on Saturday and 6th in the final League tables. At Wormwood Scrubs AIMI WEIGHTMAN ran her only appearance of the season, and won by a considerable distance.

Under 15 Boys/Under 17 Men’s Team – Had a consistent season, and at Uxbridge just before Christmas we came away in 2nd place with 13 runners toeing the line, THOMAS PATRICK won a close race by 5 seconds. We were just short of numbers at Wormwood Scrubs which meant the team finished the season in 3rd place. There were 3 ever-presents JOSEPH HEATHER, DYLAN HEPWORTH and BEN KELLY.

Under 15 Girls/Under 17 Women’s Team – Were awesome throughout the season, and from the first fixture at Claybury they applied the pressure on the 4 remaining fixtures, and become League champions by some 192 points. GRACE INGLES and LIA RADUS had 2 wins, also LIDIA KYRIACOU and SOPHIA STAAB each had a win. There were 2 ever-presents ELENA RONCARATI and SOPHIA STAAB and at Uxbridge we had 15 runners.

Senior Men’s Team – Although we had many excellent performances, but due to lack of numbers you get punished team wise, and they finished in 6th place overall. Individually RICHARD GOODMAN won 3 races and was 2nd on Saturday, securing the 1st prize of top Individual. Also THOMAS BUTLER has been equally impressive by winning the Under 20 title, and finished 5th on Saturday. THOMAS and PHILIP CUNNINGHAM were the only ever-presents.

Senior Women’s Team – Suffered with lack of numbers and finished in 10th place overall. Individually NAOMI TASCHIMOWITZ won 1 race and was 3rd in her next race, VICTORIA PRITCHARD has a 2nd and 3rd place.

ATHLETICS WORLD CUP LONDON 2018 – The two-day competition will see eight of the world’s top athletics nations battle for the inaugural World Cup Trophy

A new Athletics World Cup event featuring eight of the world’s top athletics nations is to take place at the London Stadium this summer.
To be held on July 14-15, the Athletics World Cup London 2018 will see teams from the USA, Great Britain & Northern Ireland, Poland, China, Germany, France, Jamaica and South Africa compete for a $2million prize pot over two evening sessions of action.
The competition will see athletes contest all field and track events up to and including the 1500m, with just one male and one female athlete from each nation selected in each event in a straight-final format.
Organisers also announced that to mark 100 years since women were given the right to vote, and as part of the Mayor of London’s #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign, the first edition of the event will see all nations select a female athlete as team captain.
“The Athletics World Cup London 2018 will be one of the biggest athletics events in 2018 and as such we’re thrilled to be able to launch it at the London Stadium,” said Richard Bowker CBE, chair of UK Athletics. “This is world-class competition where nation will face nation and fans will see an amazing feast of athletics over two days featuring many of the biggest global superstars in the world of sport.
“This will be an incredible event which we are thrilled to be able to launch on the back of a highly-successful World Championships last summer.”
IAAF president SEBASTIAN COE said: “This is one of the exciting innovative events we are seeing in our sport and our thanks go to British Athletics and the Mayor of London for creating it and hosting it.
“We have eight lanes, eight top nations, eight teams and a host of world-class athletes lining up in each event to win the trophy and prize pot. This will be a fast-paced and exhilarating experience for athletes and fans.”
South Africa’s world 400m record-holder WAYDE VAN NIEKERK, who won world gold in the London Stadium last summer, said: “It’s great to see such an exciting head to head event confirmed to be taking place in London this summer – the concept is one that will excite everyone in athletics and is sure to attract new fans to the sport.
“The South African team will be there in force and we hope to see fans from all over the world join us in London for what will be an amazing competition.”
Registration for the ticket ballot is now open at www.athleticsworldcup.org.

LONDON TO BRIGHTON ROAD RELAY The first race for runners (who were mainly professionals) was on the 30 January 1837, and the winner covered the 53 miles in 8 hours 37 minutes. Various races followed until 1951, when the first relay race for amateur runners was held, covering 53 miles 566 yards. The race was run every year until 1964, and was cancelled in 1965 due to traffic problems. The race has been run since then, but as a race for individual runners until 2005. In 2005 the Road Runners Club made a decision not to hold the race, and the main factor was the ever increasing traffic. Since 2009 “Extreme Running” now organise a version of the race, which starts from Blackheath, then through Kent, Surrey and on to Brighton.

Shaftesbury had been ever present since 1951, and on October 1962 the team were ready. We had a Shaftesbury coach which carried the supporters, and followed the race to Brighton, stopping at various points to cheer on the runners – Report of the 10 October 1964 race;

Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers Club Hoody, information on how to buy one

BOB PARKERIt is with great regret to report that former Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers Club President, BOB PARKER aged 87, passed away peacefully last Saturday 20 January at his home in North Harrow.

BOB was an exceptional man who always on hand to give advice when asked, and as a talented coach who was behind the success achieved by former World Record Holder, DAVE BEDFORD and many other SBH members. He was Shaftesbury President from 1980 to 1982, and he told me that was one of the most enjoyable 3 years in Athletics.

DAVE sent me the following – I joined Shaftesbury Harriers in 1964 and he started coaching me in 1965. Always called me Boy, still did to the end! BOB became a second father and SYLVIA a 2nd Mother and in truth they had more influence on my development and life than my parents! BOB had previously coached some of the older Shaftesbury lads and he was still racing himself. I do remember him running the Poly Marathon in the late 60’s with me supporting him on a push bike. Up until the 1970’s he was still warming up and down with me at training sessions and overseeing fartlek sessions on Hampstead Heath. Twice each week in winter we would train from his house in North Harrow. Sometimes there were 5 to 20 in the house. He worked full time and often I would meet him during his lunch break to discuss training and injuries! BOB drove me and others to races including “pot hunting” events to Paignton and Torquay. He was always there for all his athletes, each of them will tell you the same. KEITH MCKAY, JULIAN GOATER, ALLISON WYETH, ANDREA WHITCOMBE and MARA YAMAUCHI plus dozens more. Where he got the energy from no one knows.
I have never heard anyone say a bad word about BOB. I had my first beer with him (date not given on purpose) and I will certainly have my last still thinking of him ever grateful for his love, care and friendship. Was he a good coach…. when I stared being coached by him I was the 73rd best junior in the English Schools XC Champs and 9 years later broke the World record for 10,000m.

His home town was Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, during his teenage years he moved and lived/worked in North London where he trained at the Maccabi Stadium Hendon in the 1950’s/1960’s. He then met SYLVIA, and after they Married they bought a Maisonette in Belmont, Harrow. TONY SUNDERLAND recalls, that from here a group of us started meeting weekly in the Winter to train on the roads, (at this time he owned a MG sports car to the envy of all of us all, they then bought his current house in North Harrow and he always maintained that he had to sell the MG to help finance the purchase).
The training group used to number from 8 to 10 of us including some from other clubs (Ealing/Valley etc) it was from this group that BOB started coaching and his first Athlete he trained was Keith McKay the rest as they say is history.
 
BOB joined the Club in around 1951/2 in the 440yds and 880yds on the track, his best times were 51seconds and 1.57 respectively. In addition to Track running for Buckinghamshire and Shaftesbury he ran over the Country and Road, (running a leg in some of the London to Brighton relay Club teams in 1950’s/1960’s). Some of his achievements included – Buckinghamshire Senior 880 yards Champion on many occasions during the 1950’s and 1960’s, Buckinghamshire Senior Cross country Champs – 1st 1962 and 1963, 2nd 1956, 3rd 1957 and 1959, Shaftesbury Junior Cross Country Champs in 1951 and Shaftesbury Senior Cross Country Champs – 5 miles in 1963 and 9 miles in 1964.

BOB and SYLVIA were instrumental in forming in the late 1980s, one of the most successful female Athletic Club of recent years, Parkside Harrow. They dominated the 1990s with no less than 4 National Cross Country Champions – Andrea Whitcombe 1990, 1991 and 1997, Katy McCandless 1995, Alison Wyeth 1996 and Mara Myers (Now Yamauchi) 1998. They also were National Team Winners for 8 consecutive years from 1989 to 1996.

BOB’S funeral is on Wednesday 7th February at 11.00am at Hendon Cemetery and Crematorium, Holders Hill Road, South Chapel.
