    Viner admitted to slight disappointment, despite a strong showing in her second season as a senior. “I felt quite tired and wasn’t running very smoothly for most of the race,” she explained. “I set off well, getting inside the top 20 up the first hill, but my legs were fatigued. I found myself drifting backwards in the field quite early on.

    “Luckily the support was amazing. Being a member of Highgate Harriers, most of the marshals were friends and they cheered enthusiastically. This helped me over my bad patch and I had a really strong finish, coming through from outside the top 30 and overtaking five people in the closing stages.”

    Shaftesbury Barnet Harrier Lia Radus placed 38th in the U17 race while her sister and team-mate Maayan came 77th in the U15 event.

    Idan Gal-Shohet, 17, improved his indoor long jump best to 6.70m when placing ninth in the U20 England Athletics Indoor Age Group Championships in Sheffield.

    Eden Davis, 18, placed fourth in his 60m semi-final in the same Championships, recording 7.00.

    Adam Firsht, 15, will represent London South Region at the Independent Schools Association Cross-Country Championships this weekend, having won his regional championship last month.
