Massive congratulations to all our runners who competed at the Dewsbury 10k. Simon Wright is currently ranked Number 1 in the UK for V50 men! A massive PB for Lee Milburn who almost beat 35 minutes. Simon Scully had a storming run hitting a PB after injury problems. Jayne Baldwin is currently ranked 4th V50 lady in the UK but the winner of the category at Dewsbury 10k did a number swap, this should have been Jayne, and Jayne should be 3rd in the UK, hope this is sorted and don’t number swap!
Great work by Rebecca, guided by David just missing out on their PB.
Claire Macleod said “Fantastic run with Sarah smith Dewsbury 10k pb sub 1 hour boom”
Sarah Machin said “PB’s today in dewsbury! As much as I moan about disliking intervals that are obviously paying off as I knocked 5 mins off my previous 10k time! Chuffed to bits with 1:10:38”
The course may have been about 150m long so cracking work all! Continue reading
At the weekend, Aiden Davies competed in Prague for the Senior GB Athletics team in a combined events international, against teams from Spain, France, Czech Republic and Poland.
In the high class event that included 2 Rio Olympic Decathletes, Aiden smashed his overall Heptathlon PB by over 100 points, achieving lifetime personal best performances in 6 out of the 7 individual events. Aiden was the top scoring U23 athlete and the GB team finished the competition in second place overall thanks to equally superb performances from the country’s top decathlete, Ashley Bryant, whose score of 5,975 was only 6 points shy of the British Heptathlon record, and Ben Gregory whose score of 5,770 points was the Welsh record. The fourth member of the team was Doncaster born athlete Liam Ramsay, who scored 5618 points.
The overall competition was won by Jorge Urena with a Spanish record of 6249 points. Ash Bryant was second and the Czech “Golden Boy”, 12th placed Rio Olympic Decathlete, Adam Sebastian Helcelet, was third. Continue reading
