Results from Event #14, 5th September 2020
Firstly thanks to our usual RD Graham Smith for sorting the times into the well organised results, this after a very early 5k & taking tons of photos at the Box End Tri!
A big well done to all 154 runners who took part in today's Fly 5k. We had times coming in from all over the UK as well as France, Bermuda and our regulars from Australia. The conditions for most of us were pretty good today, not too hot with only a slight breeze.
Yet again the women’s record fell to Lesley Locks of Aldershot, Farnham & District beating her own previous best Fly 5k time with a brilliant 17:45, now a 6th consecutive win.
For the men we have a familiar overall winner with St Albans AC’s Will Bowran running a very impressive 16:04.
We also had new age category records in JM15-17 (Euan Turner 17:31) VM70-74 (Ian Sage 25:10) VW 40-44 (Lesley Locks 17:45) VW50-54 (Emma Stepto 18:22).
