Millet’s snappy display is just what’s needed for Highgate Harriers

James Millet ran the fastest lap of the day as Highgate Harriers’ Under-17 men’s team struck gold in the Middlesex Young Athletes road relays.

Millet was ably supported by Josh Mills, who held off a strong challenge from Thames Valley Harriers, and Alex Machin Paley, whose superbly-judged final leg secured victory at Hayes.

Georgia Fear recorded the fastest lap in the Under-17 women’s race, while Terry Fawden achieved the same feat to help Harriers’ Under-15 boys’ team to a silver medal.

There was another silver medal for the Under-13 girls’ team, while Theo Machin Paley triumphed in the Under-11 boys’ race, ahead of team-mate Finlay Doyle.

In the Under-11 girls’ event, Highgate debutant Ellie Gilmore and Clara Mee finished second and third respectively.
