Thanks very much to Paul Holgate for today's report...
Well done to all 136 runners who took part in today's Fly 5k. We had times coming in from Suffolk, Clacton/Frinton, Ambleside and Under Loughrigg and New Forest to name but a few. And while for most of us the weather was more like Autumn than Summer, for Gary Warren it was ‘very hot into a headwind ‘ in Spain.
The women’s record was beaten once again as Lesley Locks of Aldershot, Farnham & District got her Fly 5k time to sub 18 minutes with 17:57 in her 5th consecutive win.
While for the men we have a tied 1st place for the first time ever as St Albans AC’s Will Bowran and Tom Halling both recorded 16:56.
We also had new age category records in JW10 (Isabelle Head 26:22), VW40-44 (Lesley Locks) and VW65-69 (Janice Nisbet 24:06) age groups.
