Results from the 3rd race of the 2019 Fast & Furious 5K series held on Wednesday 24th July.
For the 3rd race of this years’ Fast & Furious 5K Series the organisers once again laid on conditions which were very warm and humid but there was still a very good turnout. The event has grown steadily the last few years with many local clubs being represented.
From Power of 10 data 5 of the first 6 finishers produced new official 5K P.B.'s (with the other finisher not being listed).
In !st place was Matthew Pollard of Bournville Harriers with 17-00 closely followed by Paul Jolliffe of Kings Heath R.C. and Chris Preece 3rd. 1st Veteran was KSAC's own Paul Hyde in an excellent P.B. of 18-32.
1st lady was Melanie James of BRAT in 19-53 with Monica Baptista of Bournville 2nd in a new P.B. of 20-27 and junior athlete Shana Stewardson of KSAC 3rd .
The organisers would like to thank all athletes for turning out and producing such excellent performances throughout the 3 races. This year both the male & female course records were broken and we look forward to these very good times being challenged next year.
Also thanks go out to all helpers who made the events possible.
