TWO Victoria Park & Tower Hamlets AC athletes currently head the individual standings for the senior age group in the Summer League 10 kilometre road race series.

Both Rob Birchley and Emily Mosedale placed fifth at the latest run in the series which took place around the Highstone Manor Recreation Ground, Harrow.

Both managed personal bests in the run, Rob shaving two seconds off his pb to record 37 mins 18 secs, although he is finding it elusive to get below the 37 minute barrier.

Emily continued her rapid progression at the distance and clocked her third successive personal best time, recording 44 mins 08 secs.

She would have been even quicker before for a spot of confusion at the end of the race, where she stopped at the wrong point, being confused by the positioning of the end-of-race timekeepers.

The next race in the series is at Regents Park, north-west London, this Sunday (July 27).

Final placings (Harrow race): Men 1. Nigel Rackham, 33.57, 2 Richard Phillips 35:01, 3 Abdulrashid Abdi, 36:48, 4 Simon Freeman, 37:01, 5 Rob Birchley (VP&TH) 37:18.

Women: 1 Fiona Kennedy, 39:31, 2 Lynn Wilson, 42:35, 3 Patricia Thomas, 43:17, 4 Sarah Richardson, 43:42, 5 Emily Mosedale (VP&TH) 44:08.

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do. It’s vital for all children’s welfare, not just in terms of students’ future education but also mental and physical well-being, as well as social interaction of classmates.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
