Exeter Harriers’ Great West Open, on 8th April, attracted several hundred athletes from across the South West.

A dry day saw this early season competition produce notable performances from several club members including;

Scarlett Livingstone U13G placed 1st in the women’s 1500m race in a time of 4:58.84, out pacing a number of older athletes, a new PB and putting her on top of the UKA early season rankings.

Daniel Hamilton-Strong U15B jumped 6.01m in the LJ, a new PB, exceeding English Schools National Standard (5.95m). He also placed 1st in the 200m, with a further PB, in a time of 24.19


Megan Hamilton-Strong U15G came 1st in the HJ with a PB of 1.58m, achieving English Schools entry standard. She also came first in the 75mHU (12.63) and LJ (4.88m)

Jack Turner U20M sparked interest on the HJ after his comfortable 1.90m clearance. He raised the bar to 2.01m, English Schools SB National Standard and a new PB. However, the height eluded him on this occasion. He won his 2 other events of the day; 110MH 15.6 and Discus, with a throw of 36.77m, setting new PBs for both. Having just moved up to the U20 age group this multi-eventer, who claimed ESSA Gold in the Inter Boys Octathlon last year, will be looking to make his mark on the Decathlon this season with his first competition looming at the end of this month.

Jack Moncur U23M, ESAA IB Javelin Bronze Medallist and Scottish Age Group Champion, threw 59.95m in the Men’s Javelin, a new PB, to secure 1st position.
