On Friday 2nd July 18 LBAC athletes went over to Cranfield University to compete in the club and county championships over 5 miles. On a humid night on a fairly flat course, some excellent performances were put in by the various club members.
On the ladies front, Amanda Martin managed to go around the course at under 10 minute mile pace for the first time ever and so is already planning her next venture. In front of Amanda, both Jane Sauer and Amy Inchley were very pleased with their respective PB’s! It was Jane’s first 5 mile race but was nonetheless delighted at the time she acheived just behind Amy who crossed the line smiling as both ducked under 40 minutes. The only other lady to venture onto student territory was Jill Richardson who took the club title by being a second under 38 minutes.
