Weekend Update

Sarah Inglis

Sarah Inglis (handicap -1.3) ran a huge PB to win the TC10K and set a course record in Victoria, Canada over the weekend. The British University Championships 10,000m took place at a windy Loughborough venue, but saw some impressive PB's at the front of the men's field. 

Scotland's Sarah Inglis (handicap -1.3) with her 32:23 PB winning performance in Canada is now 22nd on the all time list sitting between Zola Budd (32:20) and Yvonne Murray-Mooney (32:24).

At Loughborough, the best student distance runners contested the BUCS 10,000m Championships, where Petros Surafel (handicap -4.9) prevailed in the men’s race with an impressive 29.26.57 ahead of Jake Smith (handicap -4.9) in 29:30.64. Both were lifetime bests.

The women's event was won by Abbie Donnelly (handicap 0.4) in 35:54.26 just four seconds ahead of Phoebe Law (handicap 3.2).   

As reported, the Virgin London Marathon headlined the top performances of the weekend. With a full complement of qualifiers for the Doha World Championships, it has surpassed the usual quality of UK performances, which will be music to the ears of those involved in the domestic development of UK running.
