Morpeth Harrier Carl Avery produced a personal best performance when finishing sixth in a 22 strong field of worthy competitors in the Men’s 3000m A Race, at the BMC Grand Prix Meeting,
held at Watford on Saturday evening 29th June 2019.
Avery posted a finishing time of 8m10.81s, taking almost seven and a half seconds off his previous figures, recorded at Scotstoun in a BMC Regional meeting, just over a year ago.

from Bantry, who posted a winning time of 8m01.48s.
