Steph scorches to 1500m PB in Belgium

StephBarnes2STEPH Barnes shaved over two seconds off her personal best at the Memorial Rasschaert meeting, in Belgium, over the weekend.

The 27-year-old Bristol & West AC runner from Clevedon, who lives in Belgium, clocked 4mins 23.24secs in the 1500 B race to improve her 2014 best of 4:25.37.

It lifts Barnes, who remarkably was a winner of the Easy Runner/Bristol Post athlete of the moth competition 14 years ago, to seventh in the South West Rankings and third in her club listings behind Olivia Sadler (4:18.36) and junior Molly Long (4:20.44).
