TWO Victoria Park & Tower Hamlets AC athletes currently head the individual standings for the senior age group in the Summer League 10 kilometre road race series.

Both Rob Birchley and Emily Mosedale placed fifth at the latest run in the series which took place around the Highstone Manor Recreation Ground, Harrow.

Both managed personal bests in the run, Rob shaving two seconds off his pb to record 37 mins 18 secs, although he is finding it elusive to get below the 37 minute barrier.

Emily continued her rapid progression at the distance and clocked her third successive personal best time, recording 44 mins 08 secs.

She would have been even quicker before for a spot of confusion at the end of the race, where she stopped at the wrong point, being confused by the positioning of the end-of-race timekeepers.

The next race in the series is at Regents Park, north-west London, this Sunday (July 27).

Final placings (Harrow race): Men 1. Nigel Rackham, 33.57, 2 Richard Phillips 35:01, 3 Abdulrashid Abdi, 36:48, 4 Simon Freeman, 37:01, 5 Rob Birchley (VP&TH) 37:18.

Women: 1 Fiona Kennedy, 39:31, 2 Lynn Wilson, 42:35, 3 Patricia Thomas, 43:17, 4 Sarah Richardson, 43:42, 5 Emily Mosedale (VP&TH) 44:08.
