Imogen Ainsworth Clocks 16:27 5,000 Metres at Stanford Invitational

30 Mar

Imogen Ainsworth opened her 2013 Outdoor Track account with a 22 second PB when running 16:27.01 for 5,000 metres in the Stanford Invitational Meeting on Good Friday (29th March 2013). In conditions which would make us all envious (well it was in California) Imogen finished 13th in a field of 31. Those of you who think British Milers Club events offer good middle distance races Imo’s race was won by Molly Seidel of Notre Dame College in 16:05.33 and that was the third of five women’s 5,000 metre races. (There were 120 finishers across the 5 races and the ‘A’ race was won by Alisha Williams in 15:09.73.) It’s a shame Imo won’t be around for the National Women’s 6-stage Road Relay this coming Saturday.
