Truong smashes 3.5km course record!

A fantastic effort by Toan Truong saw him smash the record on the relatively new 3.5km handicap course this month.  Toan takes the record from Neil Saltmarsh, who has held it since March 2014.

Toan set the new record at 13:21. His previous best time was 14:14 set back in October. When Toan came to the club he happened to come under the guidance of Pat Browne. 

Pat has been running with Toan and his mate Thai, and pairing them up with faster 10km runners to better them; so Toan’s achievement didn’t just happen, it has been worked at and the effort duly rewarded. Well done Pat.
