Due to the Covid-19 situation there were no events for the 2020/21 season


Final after all 8 Events for 2019/20

Paid up members only included...

COVID-19 meant that the Closing 5 could not be held in 2019-20 and the DK Saunders Trophy for the winner of the Closing 5 is not awarded this year. The Bennett Cup is decided therefore on the 8 events completed. 79 runners (61 men, 18 women) took part in the 8 Bennett Cup races recording 167 performances (144 male, 23 female). The biggest field was 43 for the Will Bolton Relays and the smallest 10 for the Orion Mob Match. 27 individual prizes were awarded to 19 men and 2 women; Luca Ercolani, John Leeson and Ian Scott beat the handicapper by picking up more than one prize. A further award is made to John Leeson who was the only runners to compete in this year's 8 events

The following is the OBITUARY that appeared in the Blackheath Harriers Gazette and Club Record No 341 - dated Aug/Sep 1929.

It is with deep regret that we have to record the death of a young and promising member, Walter Patrick Dillon Bennett, in an air crash on July last. Bennett joined the Club early in 1926, and although unable to compete regularly made considerable progress, being placed in several handicap races, notably in the Nicholls Cup last winter, when he was second; and he supported many Club social functions. He was very modest and known well to only a few, so that the tribute from the Rev. A. J. K. Martyn, headmaster of Sedbergh School, below is especially apt to assist 'Heathens of his generation to estimate the loss of this generous and unassuming character.

Walter P. D. Bennett was born in October 1907, and educated at Sedbergh School, Yorkshire. At the time of entering that school, in September, 1921, his father, who was an engineer, lived at Stocksfield-on-Tyne. Bennett joined the School-house under Major W. N. Weech, the headmaster. During his five years at school he worked his way from the lowest to the highest form with that perseverance and pluck which characterised him all through. Though never distinguished in any branch of athletics, he exercised a strong and healthy influence on his schoolfellows, with whom he was immensely popular. After leaving school he worked with an engineering firm in London, but took up "flying" in his spare time, and after gaining his pilot's certificate was on the Reserve of Air Force Officers. It was on July 19, when he had been observed by an eye-witness to perform some daring feats, that the aeroplane, a single seater, nose-dived and crashed near Radlett, in Hertfordshire; Bennett was killed instantaneously.

We tender our profound sympathy to his mother, and to his sister and surviving brother. The sudden close to a brilliant young life is made the more pathetic as Bennett had only a few weeks previously passed the examination for entrance to King's College, Cambridge, and had been looking forward eagerly to his three years at that university.
