MK 5000 PB Special
A new 5000m-specific meeting at Stantonbury on July 27th proved immensely popular, selling out many weeks in advance. There were twelve races in all – carefully seeded to provide a coherent range of abilities in each race. Chiltern’s Richard Slade (U23) had a great race to win the F race in a huge new PB of 15.45.
