Bicester AC’s Finley Colverson-Martin continued his superb road running form at last Sunday’s Eynsham 10km, which doubled up as the Oxfordshire County Championship. Colverson-Martin finished 8th in a monster field of over 500 finishers and was first under 17 male finisher. He was also 4th in the Oxfordshire race, run in conjunction with the main race. Colverson-Martin’s time of 33mins 5secs was 33secs inside his previous best, set earlier in the year at Thame. Colverson-Martin’s time places him 8th in the 2021 under 17 men’s Runbritain national rankings for 10km.
Bicester AC’s other competitor was Anna Jolliffe who was making her debut over the 10km distance. She performed well for 100th place clocking 41mins 54secs and was 12th finisher out of the 201 ladies who competed placing 8th in the county race. Jolliffe was also the first under 17 woman finisher.
