Super Fast Yeovilton 5k series returns

The annual summer 5k series returns to the super quick Yeovilton course on Wednesday 8th April. The series, organised by Yeovil Town Road Running Club, takes place on the second wednesday of the month throughout the summer and in recent years has seen race winners such as Frank and Ben Tickner, James Thie, Toby Lambert, myself and course record holder Rob Whalley. With conditions invariable perfect on the flat 1 lap course its no surprise that the course record stands at 14.04 and that many athletes have run 14.something over the years.

For athletes looking for an extra edge for this years series there will be a selection of Saucony race shoes on sale at the first event - ideal for 5k and 10k races !

I won one of these back 10 years ago in 1999- drove back from Penance that day (after a race down there) and only made the start line in time! really enjoyed the race and it is a super fast course.
cheers james thie
