5K Masterclass Update (Records Tumble)

Having completed just over a third of the Dash for Fitness 5K Masterclass, in association with Hillingdon Athletic Club (HAC), it was time to check the runners’ progress in last night’s HAC 5K Training Race, and they all passed with flying colours.

Each runner beat their pre-Masterclass 5k time by more than 2 minutes (following on from the June race, when each runner beat their time by at least 1minute), with Victoria beating hers by 3 minutes, and Kate beating hers by 5 minutes! And that’s just the start of last night’s achievements…..Grace, Helen, Stuart, and Kate all set new PBs with Stuart, remarkably, not only beating last night’s target but also his target for the August 5k. Even more remarkably,Grace and Kate beat their targets for the end of the programme – so new ones will now be agreed. In addition, Sandra just missed a PB despite being just back from holiday, and Victoria, who was just outside hers, demonstrated increased stamina by running the last lap 1min/mile faster than the first 3k.

All in all, another truly amazing night with the runners once more leaving their coach open mouthed and very proud of them all.  Once published, full results will be available at https://www.hillingdonac.co.uk/

If you’d like to get yourself a new 5K PB, the next 12-week Masterclass will be held on Saturdays 9.00-10.00am (Kings College Track, Ruislip), starting on 16th September, and will be using Parkruns once a month to check progress. Limited places available. Further information and registration by email to dashforfitness@btinternet.com or call Gary on 07710 105086.
