Scottish athlete Beth Potter set the British and World record for 5k road run well under 15 minutes of time lapse.
Beth Potter who is 29 years old 2016 Olympian had run under 15:24 last time for the same event and is now gearing up for triathlons.
Recently, there was a conundrum around the licensing of this event under the UK Athletics (UKA) and it was stated that the event only had a license from the Association of Running Clubs (ARC), yet a license of UKA was shown up on the event. Although, Podium 5k did tweet that the event was fully licensed. Potter’s win is yet to be confirmed due to a rumor circling around the lack of drug-testing in the event.
The Men’s A race event was also the one where Tom Mortimer, Phill Seseman, & Jonny Brownlee took the lead, with Mortimer and Seseman leading the group under 13:40. The race ended with Mortimer finishing the line.
