Bristol 1-2 missed from New Year’s Round-Up

Bristol University graduates and Bristol & West Club members Imogen Ainsworth and Claire Hallissey both returned from America to England for the festive season and sneaked in a quick 10k in the Brooks Hyde Park 10k on New Year’s Day. Imo was not far off her lifetime best finishing thirteenth in the race and winning the women’s race in 35.37 with Claire second half a minute behind in 36.07. Well done to both of them – its a shame they are already back stateside as they have been an integral part of the senior ladies team for some years and we would have loved to have had them both running in the forthcoming championship cross-country races.
