Three athletes from Morpeth Harriers took part in the BMC Gold Standard event, held at Stretford, Manchester on the evening of Tuesday 15th September.
Alex Brown finished a very close third, in the third fastest of four Men’s 3000m events, posting a brand new personal best of 8m24.55s, thus taking a whole eight seconds off his previous best time for the seven and a half lap event.
Finishing just ahead of him were winner Alex Carcus of Edinburgh AC (8m23.54s), and second placed George Watson of Loughborough Students (8m24.33s).
In the third fastest of five Men’s 1500m events, Joe Armstrong won in a new personal best time of 3m50.11s, taking three seconds off his previous achievement.
Rory Leonard, now beginning his University career at Loughborough, instead of his previously planned one in America, will be a little disappointed in the fact that he fell a bit short of his fastest time in the Men’s 1500m A Race.
He posted 3m50.65s, which saw him place seventh of eight in a talent filled event.
