Hi Everyone, Just returned from Alexander Stadium where the GB Over 50 team recorded a time of 8.39.75 to set a new European and British record and narrowly missed out on the World record of 8.36.39 set by Canada in Toronto in 2012. Our Rob Andrew ran a super first leg and was well inside the old record schedule however due to injury there were changes to the original team and although the substitutes ran their hearts out they just missed out on the world record. Another attempt next year Rob?

All the best. John T
