Update from night of 1500m track meeting
Aldershot, Farnham & District AC hosted a night of 1500m races last Thursday and 3 WADAC athletes took part all recording pb's.
The races hosted by a club renowned for its middle distance and endurance heritage ran slowest to quickest and first up was U17 man Dominic Exworthy (coach Mike Chambers) in race 12 who took an astonishing 15 secs off his pb from last year to record a time of 4 mins 19.7 secs.
Next up in race 13 from the same age group was training partner Doug Scally (coach Mike Chambers) who fresh from going under 2 mins for the first time in the 800m the weekend before ran a pb of 4 mins 11.4 secs to improve his all time 2nd place ranking on the club records list.
Last up was senior man Ben Healy (coached out of club) who may be running a few more races over this distance rather than the 400m/800m he usually runs after taking a full 10 secs off his pb to run a mightily impressive 4 mins 05.6 secs in the penultimate race of the day.
