Katie Ingle wins bronze at British Champs

Posted: July 3, 2017 by RSCAC in Race reports

A super performance (as seen on TV) by Katie Ingle gave her the bronze medal  in the 3000 metres Steeplechase at the British Champs in a time of 10.02.34. Thoroughly deserved and a great reward for all the hard work she has put in. This was more than a ten second improvement over her previous lifetime best of 10.13.99 and is a new Club record.

Well done Katie we are all proud of you!!!
