Sam Stabler (handicap -5.7) was another who doubled up last week winning the Armagh 5k in 13:59 and then running 8:03.35 at the British Athletics Championships in Birmingham.

By training and racing regularly your runbritain profile will maintain a healthy score and if you ran well in your event at the weekend, you may have reduced your score. Check out your weekend result and your score now and then plan your next race to try to improve it!
