Bicester’s Ben West produced the run of his life at last Wednesdays open meeting at Watford. West wrested the 20 year old 1500 metres under 17 boys club record from former club favourite Mark Curzen recording a magnificent 4mins 6.01secs which was also a national grade 1 effort. West has now moved up to 31st in the under 17 male ranking for the 1500 metres.
