Further Junior member successes
At last weekend’s South East Middle Distance Championship at Epping Far East, DFOK Juniors excelled with medals for Maxime Pesenti (3rd in M16), Vadim Pesenti (1st in M12), Luke Bennett (2nd in M12) and Jake Bennett (1st in M10). Well done to all.
Luke’s 2nd place follows his 1st place at the British Schools Championships in Slough on 17th November. Luke excelled coming in first of 29 participants in the year 6 Boys age class in a time of 10:07. In an otherwise hotly contested age class for the remaining top places, Luke was more than a minute ahead of everyone else. Good focus and planning, Luke!
Well done to Andrew Pitcher for coming second in M45/M50 at the South East Night Championships on Saturday evening at Squerryes Estate. This was followed by Vadim Pesenti winning M12 in 18:17 and Sheralee Bailey coming second running up as a W40 at the South East Long Championships at Hankley Common the following day. Congratulations to the 3 of you.

Peter Palmer Junior Relay
Recently a number of our juniors teamed up with some SAXONS juniors to form two combined club teams for the annual Peter Palmer Junior Relay. For those that are not familiar with the event, it is similar to the Harvester Relay in that it has a night time start, then transitions through dawn and into the early morning. Two competitions are provided the full Peter Palmer Junior Relay for teams of six competitors and the Daybreak Relay for teams of four. We had a team in each competition. Both teams did exceptionally well against national and international opposition, with our Peter Palmer Junior Relay team (including Maddy, Vadim and Maxime) coming third in the small clubs category. Well done to all those juniors that took part.
