Dan Studley goes sub-30 in Ribble Valley 10k – Sunday 29th December 2013

Dan Studley made the long journey north to the Ribble Valley 10k well worthwhile as he broke new ground with a stunning PB of 29:48 to finish third in this prestigious race which incorporated the Northern Championships. With eventual race leader Jonny Mellor (29:12) taking the filed through the 5k point in 15:12 Dan clearly ran a very solid negative split. Behind in ninth place Charlie MacLean clocked a very creditable 30:13 but it was Dan’s run that really caught the eye.
