Jemima Pratt

Pride of place went to 8 year old Jemima Pratt who won the U11 girls 1.25 mile race despite falling over in the mass stampede start. Young Jemima has been in great form recently and is the current County Schools XC Champion and Great North Run road race champion, where she holds the course record! Henry Moore pupil Jemima is coached at HAC where she is part of the junior endurance squad. She is also a regular at Harlow Parkrun and has great support from Harlow Running Club.

One thing we try to do at HAC is to remind all our superstar athletes that their successes are really the successes of the whole training group, without whom, they could not succeed and thus that builds team spirit and loyalty among the group and they are all great friends. We have such a wealth of athletic talent in the community and are fortunate to have great parental support for all our youngsters at the club.
