Great running by Conrad Franks in Madeira, representing GB in the European Masters Athetics Championship (V35 age group) 10k Road Championship, he finished in 2nd place collecting the Silver medal in a time of 31:52, whilst also collecting the Bronze medal in the Team race, alongside fellow NEMAA member Scott Armstrong (there were over 150 runners in the race)
During the recent NECAA T&F match held at Morpeth last weekend, Gavin Bayne broke the NEMAA M65 mile record with a time of 5:51.50 - only to have it broken again a couple of heats later by Morpeth team-mate David Nicholson, in a time of 5:43.82. Well done to both of them!
There is another T&F meeting organised for November 15th at Morpeth, with 800m, 3k, discus, shot and javelin - entries available HERE.
NEMAA are thrilled that another of their athletes has produced a British age group record - this time around it's Ian Barnes, setting a new record for the mile of 8:10.40 at his local Eastbourne track in Darlington. The full story can be seen in the Northern Echo - here's the link. Well done Ian!
