Fullerton was among a field of over 700 in the senior women’s race, while Vicky Smith celebrated her highest ever finish at the event in 75th place.

Shot-putter Emmanuel Quarshie improved his personal best in qualifying and the final at the ritish Universities Indoor Championships at Sheffield.

Representing Coventry University, Quarshie’s qualifying mark of 13.90m added over 20cm to his previous best and he improved further to 14.12m in the final to finish fifth with the third best all time by a Havering senior.

Richard Holland (Exeter) saw action in the long jump, recording 6.09m in the qualifying competition.

n It was another good week for Havering Mayesbrook athletes in the local parkrun events.

Matthew Braybrook was first home in the Barking event, with veteran Martin Chester in second place and Sarah Wilson the first woman home in a new best.

Ian Anthony continued his fine record at Southend, notching up his sixth victory of 2014.
