After a disappointing first race back from injury at the U20 SEAA Relays on the 12th March, even with the lack of training Chris wanted to test his fitness over 5k.
He was confident that he could get around 19 minutes for the race as his PB set in December was 18.48. With the best weather in months and the gods shining down on him he went out with the goal of getting as close to his PB a possible.
Chris did not just get close to his personal best; he smashed it running 18.24 knocking 24 seconds off, coming home in 22nd and first U20. Now Chris is on the road to being 100% his sights will be on his first ever track season.
Anuradha Cooray from Vale Of Aylesbury won the race in 15.27. There were 242 finishers.
