In her first year of the age-group, Radus placed sixth individually, recording 18:08 for the officially measured three-mile course in unseasonably hot and difficult conditions.
The previous weekend, Radus had demonstrated her fitness by cutting her 1,500m best to 4:55.7 in the Eastern Young Athletes League in Watford. Remarkably, that same morning, she had placed fourth in a duathlon — 1,500m run, 7.5km bike ride and 1,500m run — setting the fastest time in the age-group across both girls and boys for the second running stage.
Lia Radus and David Stone both placed eighth in their U17 age-group in the Mini Marathon Borough Challenge. Their times were 18:02 and 15:50 respectively, with Radus suffering from cramp in the latter stages.
Jack Davis-Black finished 14th in the U13 event in 17:56, leading home the Islington team. His mother, Sara Black, completed the full marathon in 3:24:51. Despite drinking a lot of water during the race, Black suffered sunstroke and severe dehydration and was admitted to hospital overnight.
Gilad Nachshen finished 27th in the U15 Borough Challenge in 17:11. The previous week, he gained a double victory over 300m and 800m at the Eastern Young Athletes League in Watford, setting a 300m PB of 39.1.
Nachshen followed that up three days later by reducing his 800m best to 2:01.48 at the Watford Open Graded Meeting, reinforcing his position at the top of the national U15 rankings.
