“It was a personal best for me today, my previous 5mile PB was two months ago at the club championship which I achieved in 34:44 and a 5 mile split in the Great South was ran in 33:52 so I am very pleased to achieve my time of 32:16”.

“I ran my first full 5K in June in about 44 mins so now to run 5 miles in 50:45 is a Hugh achievement”.
