Well, some things are just like buses. You don't have a race victiry for years and then two come along in one season! It would seem that fatherhood is doing Simon Coombes no harm at all as he took his second road race victory of the summer in the county 5K championships at Wardown Park in Luton. His time of 16:37 put him over 30 seconds in front of his nearest challenger and lead home a good qaulity showing by LBAC.
Behind him, Ben Corfield was someway off his best form, but looking to improve over the summer months and clocked 17:46 to finish 8th and Joby Hobbs took the 3 club place in 18:56. Fred Watt, Tim Bacon and John Adam also competed in the men's event with Fred finishing as 2nd V60 in Bedfordshire.
