Bristol Ladies to the Fore in New York 10K – Saturday 9th June 2012

Whilst other members of the club ran in the Ashton Court Parkrun, Avon League at Yate or travelled to Watford for the BMC Grand Prix Claire Hallissey and Kate Reed found Central Park New York a more enticing venue for this weekend’s racing (and who wouldn’t). Claire and Kate came to the race through quite different paths with Claire finishing tenth in 33:33 as part of her on-going preparation for the Olympic Marathon. For Kate it was a welcome return to racing after countless injury problems and her fifteenth place in 34:23 (which ranks her 19th in UK for 2012) shows that it won’t be too long before she is back to the sort of form that made her an established Great Britain international in the past. Well done to you both flying the club flag the other side of the ‘pond’.
