Mark Franks 21:18 (at Southwark Parkrun) Stuart Craft 22:07 Simon O'Keefe 23:15 Stan Cross 24:59 PB Louis Arundell Walker 28:47 Harry Arundell Walker 31:04 Emilija Malova 31:06 PB Harvey Arundell Walker 36:15 PB Francis McKenna 38:42
Congratulations to Stan,Emilija and Harvey for achieving personal best 5K times at Cutteslowe Park this weekend.
The hard work in training is really starting to tell amongst our youngsters. Stan knocked an impressive 1:05 from his previous PB; Emilija who celebrated her tenth birthday this week, completed the course 51 seconds faster than last time; Harvey ran 1:51 quicker that his previous best effort - an outstanding achievement; Harry did very well considering that it was his first run at this distance since coming back from a broken toe and Francis showed consistency coming just 42 seconds shy of his PB.
In the seniors, Simon achieved his best time this year by 20 seconds while Peter, Stuart and Louis, who all lack recent 5k training due to coaching commitments, ran hard but failed to touch their previous fastest times (though Peter still managed to come second in his age category).
Over in Central London Mark achieved a very good time considering that he has been training only long distances in recent months in preparation for the forthcoming Oxford Half-Marathon and Abingdon Marathon.
