When you get slightly “more experienced” in years you start looking for five year age brackets as it becomes a distinct advantage to being at the bottom end of that bracket when entering races. Our resident international, Gail has just done her first race as a V55 at the BMAF (British Masters Athletic Federation) Relays in Sutton Park, Birmingham, having kept her birthday very quiet!
Unfortunately LBAC doesn’t have a team of three V55’s to compete with Gail in these events, but nevertheless it is an excellent event and so Gail went off to do the first leg and have a good race. As it turned out, her time of 18.32 for the three mile loop was 90 seconds quicker than anyone else in her category and so she walked off with the Gold, fastest lap medal. Well done Gail.
