First SSAFA 5k of 2010

Sunday 23 May 2010

Cardiff AAC duo Matt Collins & Pete Ryder (pictured) made sure that the Club was well represented in the first SSAFA 5k Road race of 2010, held in Cardiff last Wednesday, 19th May. Matt was narrowly beaten by winner Daren Hiscox of Bridgend with Pete coming home fourth with a superb run that earned him a personal best time of 15:47, smashing his old PB.

Wednesday's race took place on a course adjusted this year because of the new park access that opened recently, meaning that the winning time on the night stands as the new course record.

Matt hung onto eventual winner, Bridgend's darren Hiscox for as long as he could before fading just slightly to finish in second place.  Matt's time was 15:40, only four seconds behind the winner.

The next races will be on 23 June and 21 July.
