Zak soars to third in South West Rankings on marathon debut

ZakTobiasZAC Tobias has made an encouraging start to his marathon career.

The Bristol & West AC runner, who is currently studying in Spain, clocked 2hrs 23mins 28secs to finish 32nd on his debut in the Valencia Marathon last weekend.

That time is good enough to propel Zac (pictured left) straight into third in the 2016 South West Rankings behind Bournemouth international Steve Way (2:20.54) and Bristol & West clubmate Pete Le Grice (2:23.16).

The debut completes a good year for the 22-year-old  as he has also ran PBs over 10k (31:21) and half marathon (68:10) while in Spain which puts him 12th and fourth respectively on the South West lists.
