Kate scorches to super PB on the boards over 3000m

KATE Maltby has thrown down an early marker for the indoor season with an astonishing performance at the Cardiff Met Christmas Classic.

The Bristol & West AC international smashed her lifetime best over 3000m with a time of 9mins 03.60secs, carving 14 seconds off her previous best.

It is the fastest time on the indoor circuit in the UK this winter – albeit the season is still in its infancy – and lifts her to ninth overall in the UK Rankings, comprising outdoor performances as well, for 2016

“I knew I was fit but didn’t quite expect to run that fast!” said Kate (formerly Kate Hulls).

This weekend Kate is on her travels again when she travels to Belgium to run for England in a Euro Cross meeting in Brussels on Sunday.

“Zoe Wassell (of Stroud & District AC) is also in the England team and is travelling with me so that will be nice,” added Kate.
