There were five good performances from Bristol & West athletes on a wet and windy Sunday morning at the Swansea 10k. First home was Rob Bugden in sixteenth place in 31.22 followed fairly closely behind by Shaun Antell who finished nineteenth in 31.39.
After the men the ladies were even more impressive with Kate Reed fourth and first British athlete in 33.19 in her first international run-out for some time. Kate Goodhead was sixteenth in 35.51 and Annabel Granger was twenty-first in 37.30. Kate Reed’s run places her ninth in the UK Women’s rankings for 2012.
The cancellation of the Midland Road Relays gave team managers Mike Down (Men’s) and Keith Brackstone (Women’s) some breathing space and they will be hoping that performances like these will provide the corner stones for decent team showings in the National Road Relays on Saturday 13th October 2012 in Sutton Park (E Coli permitting).
Although not yet up on the Swansea web-site the results are available on Power-of-10.
