Last Wednesday Tony Bacon ran 2 track races at Watford. It looks like he might be the first person to represent the club on an official track fixture. Hopefully the first of many. Tony did really well coming 2nd in his 1500m race 4:51 and 3rd in his 3000m race 10:16. These races are on every 2 weeks, if anyone else is interested in trying out a track race.
On Saturday in the Olympic Park 10K, Yusuf Firat was first MV50, coming 34th overall in 43:04. Paul J Sherritt also had a good run he was 15th MV50 in 54:14.

In the Bungay Marathon Kirsty Millard was 1st in her age category she ran 4:00:20. Horace Shuriah can’t stop running Marathons at the moment, this was his 5th Marathon in just over a week! He finished in 4:40:17.
In the Bungay Half Jamie Randall ran 1:44:00, closely followed by Jack Tappin 1:44:20. John Nevin was 8th in his age category 1:52:21. Fran Williams ran 2:11:07.
