Jones scorches to PB in Armagh International 5k

ONCE again the Armagh International 5k road race delivered some top class results last night.

Bristol & West had a large contingent (pictured above) making the trip and the squad of Jack Millar, Callum Jones, Harry Allen and Jack Bancroft finished fifth team.

Jones led the team home in 46th place with a big personal best of 14mins 20secs with Millar just a stride behind in 14:21 for 49th, also a PB.

Allen placed 74th in 14:36 and Bancroft completed the scoring in 88th clocking 14:40, both men just missing their PBs.

In addition Kurt Taylor was 108th in 14:44 (PB by two seconds), Alex Crossland 110th in 14:48, Josh Moody 119th in 14:49 (PB by six seconds) and Mike Wilsmore ran 15 minutes exactly in 140th.

The race was won Adam Clarke in 13mins 42secs and the top 24 broke 14 minutes, 65 dipped under 14:30 and 139 runners broke the 15 minutes barrier. Outstanding stuff and underlining the race’s claim to be one of the best in Europe.
