Steph Twell stepped out to clock a respectable 10k time in Switzerland. On home soil, there were excellent 5k times in Milton Keynes whilst Aldershot hosted a track meeting that harvested great performances.

In Milton Keynes the NoblePro MK 5km PB Special was a classy affair with winning times of sub 14 and sub 16 for the men's and women's winners.  Australian elites, Ryan Gregson (handicap -2.6) and Gen Gregson were feeling fierce in the windy conditions. Both took top honours in routine workouts with 13:50 and 15:49 respectively.  Adam Clarke (handicap -5.8)  chased home 14:10 with Callan Moody (handicap -4.6) close behind with 14:13 and impressive juniors,  Henry McLuckie (handicap -4.0)  and Alfie Manthorpe (handicap -4.0)  running 14: 13 and 14:29.
