Biggleswade AC athletes Dan Steel and Michael Blunt competed in the Watford Open event on the evening of Wednesday 8th April.
Dan managed to win his 200m race with yet another new personal best time, whilst Michael also managed a podium win in the 800m, and a new season’s best time.
And Elaine Stead travelled to the south coast, last weekend, not to relax by the sea but to participate in the Brighton Marathon. Despite the strong, coastal winds Elaine managed to finish in just under 5hrs (04:56:24).
