Dulwich Runners – Ros Tabor bags bronze for Team GB

The World Athletics Masters Championships are underway in Malaga with Dulwich Runners fielding athletes for Team GB in various events.

Ros Tabor had a successful start to the championships in the women’s 65-plus 8km cross-country race. She picked up the individual bronze in a time of 38:40 and the team gold for Great Britain ahead of Germany and Mexico.

Andy Murray was the fourth-placed GB athlete in a strong GB showing in the men’s 65-plus cross-country category.

Wayne Lashley ran a season’s best 800m in 2:03.29 in the M35 category but missed qualification for the semi-finals by an agonising two hundredths of a second. Despite this he can be satisfied with a successful track season having been injured for much of 2017.

Back in South London, Edward Chuck continued his speedy form with his second club 5,000m record in less than a month. In a high-quality South London Harriers Open race at Coulsdon, he recorded 15:15.69 to finish third. Tim Bowen produced a  PB of 15:40 while Andy Bond smashed the club M40 record in 15:51.

Shane O’Neill rounded off the Dulwich contingent with his own PB of 16:17. In the B race, Tony Tuohy recorded a season’s best 17:08 in third place. Ian Lilley (17:14) reprised his friendly race rivalry with Paul Devine (17:24) to grab his own PB.

Christina Dimitrov got closer to that elusive sub-20 goal with 20:05 in the C race.
