jogging: Jeff Haynes stormed to yet another category win and club record at the Bedford Park 5km last Wednesday.

Fittingly, it was a return to the course in which Silson’s stalwart veteran set the club’s overall 5km record back in 2001.

Taking advantage of the fairly flat, multi lap course and good conditions, Haynes clocked 18min 28sec to win the M55 category by an impressive 28 seconds.

In the process he also lowered the club M55 record by 15 seconds, a mark he himself had set just over a year ago.

Haynes has recorded category wins in each of his competitive outings this season. His latest club record adds to the impressive list against his name over a range of age categories and distances.

Also running was Simon Woodward. Better known as a longer distance specialist, the club captain recorded 17.45.
