Allan was back closer to home on Feb 7th at a middle distance evening at Lee Valley. In the Soar Open, Allan took part in the mile and was third in a PB of 4.19.94. Also that evening at Lee Valley, the British Milers Club held a series of 800m races, six for men, three for women in which Will Perkin and Adam Day were taking part.
Adam was in the F race and had his best run of the season so far to run an indoor PB to be fourth in 1.59.37.
In the B race Will Perkin had some big names to contend with. Will stayed towards the back of the field until the final lap and with a strong finish managed to win the race, ahead of English Schools champion Finley Bigg in a new PB of 1.51.25.
As a result Will went to 13th on the Senior rankings and secured an invite to the British Indoor Championships. Will is running for Bath University in the BUCS Championships, held in Sheffield on February 16th-18th.
On the 24th and 25th February in Sheffield, Adam will be competing over 800m in the England Athletics U20 Indoor Championships and Cameron Reid will also be running 800m in the corresponding U17 Champs. In addition U17 Joe Eggleton will be tackling 60m and U17 Lily Holt involved in the high jump. New recruit Finn Hobson will be in the U15 age group, running 60m.
