Paul Pollock records new 10k (road) personal best in Spain:
Northern Ireland’s Paul Pollock (Annadale Striders) recorded a brilliant 29:06 (14th place), a new 10k road personal best, at the San Silvestre Vallecana 10k road race in Madrid (Spain) on New Year’s Eve (Sunday 31st December 2017).
After the race, Paul shared his delight with a post on social media: “What a sound, what an atmosphere! What a way to celebrate New Years. Let my heart rather than head control pacing but after year I’ve had, delighted with 10k road pb (and first 5k pb enroute). Happy New Years folks!”
The Rio Olympian and newly crowned AAI National XC Champion will find out tomorrow (Wednesday 3rd January 2018), if he is on the final Northern Ireland Commonwealth Games team.
