Athletics: Don impresses on veterans scene

DON Lawless continued to impress with his indoor performances. On Sunday’s southern counties veterans championships he earned an invitation to run in the national inter area championships this weekend. He was runner up in the v50 3,000m championship with a time of 11.27.

That great performance followed a bronze medal in the 800m a couple of hours earlier. Running on the boards aggravated Don’s fragile Achilles’ tendon so his 15 laps for the indoor 10k were painful but a rewarding experience.

Newcomer to the sport, Toby Draper returned a PB by finishing in 13th place in the Dunton Test circuit 10 mile road race. His time was 65.32 which earlier in the year would have been his best pace for 10k.
