JG and JM PB at Reading Half

Wednesday 1st April 2009

The Reading Half Marathon has become very popular with Phoenix Athletes in recent years. It's reasonably flat, well-organised and perfect for pbs. This year's hopefuls were not disappointed. Josh Guilmant ran a stormer coming fifteenth in a field of 12,000. His time of 1:08:55 was a pb by roughly 2 minutes! James Miles carved a similar margin off his previous best to record 1:14:31 for 61st place. Dave Carter missed his pb by an agonising 10 seconds finishing 25th in 1:11:22. All our other athletes had impressive runs – Tom Coates 1:19:52, Garry Judd 1:22:53, Erica Martin 1:24:45, Dave Gifford 1:26:13 and head coach Malcolm Kemp recording 1:43:02 despite struggling to throw off a cold.
