Last edited: Sunday June 25th 2017
Warrington Athletic Club’s 19 year old Harriet Knowles-Jones made her debut for the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Senior team in the 3000 metres at the European Team Championships in Lille France on Saturday 24th June.With the runners wanting to score as many points as possible for their teams the race became tactical from the start and Harriet kept near the front but was running in lane two keeping out of trouble but only two runners had been dropped from the pack by halfway as the race became more of a 1500 metres than 3000 metres race.From then the pace began to increase and Harriet was gradually dropped from the pack most of whom had faster 1500 metres times than her and she eventually finished in 9th place in 9 minutes 14.86 seconds scoring 4 points for the team.
