Claire Hallissey adds English 5k Road Bronze to her National Medal Haul

12 Jul

The undulating course and strong winds at Blackburn on Sunday 11 July 2010 couldn’t prevent Claire Hallissey going under 16 minutes for the first time over 5k (on track or road). Running in the English 5k road race championships Claire was a fine third behind fellow GB internationals Helen Clitheroe (15:45) and Justina Heslop (15:47) as she finished in 15:57 showing that the build up of mileage in preparation for this November’s New York Marathon hasn’t impacted adversely on her performances over the shorter distances.
