David Riches has just run the new course record for the monthly 3.5k handicap in a time of 12:14.

David literally smashed the previous record set in March 2015 by Toan Truong at 13:21.

That’s a one minute, seven second knock down!

 

Toan’s time had lowered the then record of 13:47 set by Neil Saltmarsh in March 2014.

 

CONGRATULATIONS DAVID.  SUPER EFFORT.

 

The event had 58 starters, one of our better turn-outs for this handicap.

David was the back marker and passed 54 other starters to cross the line in fourth place, bettered by new club members running their qualifying run and one member who seriously broke handicap.

 

A mighty mighty run David. Again: congratulations.
