A welcome successful return to racing for Sarah Syron after a tortuous nine months out with injury. Boosted by this form she’ll be looking to join a strong women’s team for the National Half Marathon in less than six weeks time. In the 2014 race she finished in 1:33.05 and was in the women’s senior team who won bronze.
A number of members still getting a 5k in at parkruns. Among them recently was Pawel Lach – 1 bieg w Krakow, running in familiar territory in Poland on 13th June in 22:44.
