Fast 10k for Cardiff duo

Tuesday 13 March 2012

The Trafford 10k, held last Sunday 11th March, saw Cardiff AAC athletes take second and third places, both breaking the hallmark time of 30m and setting personal bests in the process. Joe MacDonald, who has recently joined Cardiff, placed second in a time of 29.08m, followed closely by Alex Hains (pictured) in 29.34m. Both athletes improved their personal best times by the best part of a minute. Joe's time puts him in 3rd place on the 2012 UK rankings for 10k and would have placed him 6th for the whole of 2011. Alex's time puts him in 5th place for 2012.

Joe and Alex are both based in Loughborough and train together. They should be valuable members of what is expected to be a strong Cardiff team to challenge for honours at the national 12 stage road relay championship to be held in Birmingham on 14th April.
