Dave takes home the top prize

One of the Harriers' newest recruits, David Green, has scooped the top prize in the East Midlands Road Running Grand Prix, which concluded at a damp Milton Keynes.

4th place in the 10K race, in a time of 33:08, rubber-stamped his victory in the senior men's competition, which is calculated from the best five positions over the prestigious eight-race series.

And Dave wasn't the only KTH member to return from MK with an envelope stuffed with cash (well, vouchers actually). Phil West (35:56) was fourth veteran on the night, which slotted him into third place in the overall standings.

Jonny Goringe (35:12) took the prize for second under 20 and along with Matt Smith, who ran comfortably to his sub-39 minute schedule, completed the Kettering team that took 3rd place on the night. KTH senior men finished 4th in the series out of 43 teams, one of our best performances in the event.

A few seconds behind Matt was the Harriers' second veteran Kemal Mehmet (39:02). Peter Goringe, who ran a PB of 45:48, and Dave Hanwell (47:40) completed the team, which finished 7th amongst the Vets.

Steve Green (43:46) and Joe Giammalva (43:49) had a good battle to the line, whilst also running for Kettering was Anthony Poncia, who clocked 46:31. Sadly, Phil Nudds had to retire through injury early in the race.
