Press Report: PBs for Nancy, Jess and Jamie

WEST CHESHIRE AC’s Jessica Lark, Jamie Richardson and Nancy Farmer are celebrating new personal bests.

Jessica sliced three seconds off her under 17 women’s 800m best with a time of 2:08.56 at the British Milers Club Grand Prix held at Birmingham, while Jamie rounded the under 20 men’s 3,000m in eight minutes 31.89 seconds at a Trafford Open Meeting, where Nancy also  clocked 5:11:63 in the under 17 women’s 1500m.

KEELY SMITH, Fiona Cook and Nick Brooks all produced impressive performances in the Lake District at the weekend.

Keely was eighth lady in the Lakeland 50 miles Race with a time of 9:50.57, ahead of West Cheshire AC team mate, Fiona Cook who posted 10:45.31 for 13th spot in the female race, and Nick clocked 37:14.58 for 232nd spot in the men’s 100 miles race.
