Ryan McKinlay recorded a hat-trick of victories for Highgate Harriers at Perivale in their first Southern League match since promotion to Division Two.

McKinlay won the 1500m in a time of four minutes 8.7 seconds, as well as the 5,000m (15:27.08) and the 2,000m steeplechase in 6:53.64 as Harriers came in fourth with a respectable tally of 131 points.

Highgate’s other successes all came in the women’s events, where Under-20 runner Hannah Viner won both the 800m (2:22.37) and the 1500m steeplechase (5:20.01).

Nina Anderson triumphed in the 400m (1:00.78), while the 4x400m relay quartet – Gemma Rous, Viner, Alima Diabate and Georgia Fear – ran out comfortable winners in 4:12.84.

Rous was also victorious in the B string 800m (2:23.90), with Laura Warren taking the B 400m (1:03.67).

The next league match takes place at Hemel Hempstead on Saturday May 17.

Elsewhere, Highgate were team winners in the Victoria Park five-mile road race on Saturday, with fourth-placed Shaun Dixon their fastest finisher in 24:39.

Jon Laybourn (ninth, 26:22), Henry Dodwell (14th, 26:47), Stephen Whiting (16th, 27:06) and Oliver Kean (17th, 27:13) were also inside the top 20.
