On Sunday 19th January, Bedford’s Matt Leach moved to the top of the 2020 UK Half Marathon rankings with a superb new club record of 62:57, which he achieved when running in the Houston Half Marathon in the USA. Matt and his dad Andy (71:10) both ran at Houston, and broke the Guiness Book of records World record for a combined father and son time in the same race. The record they broke was held by our own Josh Lunn and his dad!
Not to be outdone, Bedford’s Irish International Matt Bergin broke his own club 5 mile record with a time of 22:43 when finishing 3rd in the AXA Raheny 5 mile road race in Dublin on Sunday. In his next race, in Armagh, Matt will be representing Ireland.
