UK top ten finishes in London 10000 for TVH endurance stars

Two of TVH’s long distance elite defied muggy conditions to finish top 10 in the UK 10k Championships, part of the London 10000 on Bank Holiday Monday.

Antonio Silva was seventh across the finish line in the shadow of Buckingham Palace setting a new PB  of exactly 30 minutes while Tracy Barlow was fifth woman in a new PB and New Club Record of 34:01 to win £600. Fantastic runs from both of them.

Michael Crone was the next TVH runner home, making the top 100 with a great PB of 33:15. While Andrew Mitchell was below his best in 35:55, Ryan Keane ran with great promise in a new PB of 36:06.

Naol Abagibe was unlucky to be caught at the back of the pack up the Mall and through the Strand early on but had a storming second half of the race to finish in 37:14.

The Hooley father and son team both performed well, Jake finishing in 39:16 and Richard Hooley a highly creditable 10th V55 man in 40m30s.

David Ford beat 45 minutes in a time of 44:35, Kirstie Tew came home in 51:35 and Charlie Le Rougetel secured a well-deserved PB in 53:23.
