Club 5 mile record smashed twice!

The overall 5 mile men’s club record has been beaten twice in a few months.

On a really hot and sunny day on an undulating course at the Overton 5 in September, Nik Darlington took 8 seconds from the previous record set by James Clarke for a new M23-39 and overall record. His time was 28:27.

Just 5 months later, new member Gary Armstrong smashed this again, in the Romsey 5 on a flat course in good conditions. His new club record is 26:30 and this is also a new M40-44 record, which was previously held jointly by Andrew Ellison and Rob Gilchrist.
