Stretford 3000m – Tuesday 1st Sept.
Gary Priestley and Colin Rigby took in the 3000m at Stretford instead of the usual track session to see where they are in terms of current form. Gary was going with the intention of a new PB and getting below the 9 min barrier, which he did – just- with a new PB of 8.59 36 – five seconds off a PB at this distance is great, well done Gary. Colin with very happy with his 9.29, finding the track pace at this distance pretty tough. Results not out yet.

Russell Maddams took in a couple of 10k races as part of his training over the weekend running the Carlisle 10k in the official time of 33.59 – and his time 33.48. This put him second overall from a field 382.
Gosforth 10k – 1st Sept.
Just to vindicate his current 10k race time, Russell raced again the following Monday to help out a running partner pace the race for a PB, this time Russ ran 33.06 for third place, just taking the race as a training session, not a bad time though just a few seconds from his seasons best!
