The MK 5k PB Special road race lived up to its name on Friday 21st August, as five competitors from Bedford and County Athletics Club achieved personal bests over the fast 5000 metre course.

Dan Jarvis came second overall in a blistering new PB of 14:15.  Paul Mizon didn’t manage a PB, but his 14:51 was enough for a top twenty finish.  A little further back Under 20s James Minter (15:00), Harry Brodie (15:09) and Ed Blythman (15:16) all managed PBs to finish 26th, 40th and 50th respectively, as did Craig Emmerson who finished just outside the top 100 in 15:54. The race had been postponed from earlier in the year due to the lockdown, and took place in a socially distanced fashion with the runners being set off in small group waves.
