Perrio & juniors sizzle in the heat over 1500

Island Games Preparation 1500mtrs, Footes Lane, 20th June 2017
The sizzling heat wave conditions did not hinder the athletes running 1500mtrs at Footes Lane last night with the majority of the field setting personal bests.  Gotland bound  Louise Perrio highlighted her rising form by setting a personal best time over the distance – revising her 2012 time with 4min 38.2 secs.

In a desperately close finish, u13 girl endurance duo of Kate Bain and Summer Woodhead both ducked inside the 5min barrier for the first time with Bain just edging Woodhead after being several metres in arrears coming into the home straight.  Their times will take them into the UK top 10 ranking for u13 girls. Eliza Mason (u17w) also went under 5mins for the first time.

At the head of the race pacemaker Dan Galpin laid on a requested moderate pace over the first 800mtrs to set up a racing scenario often encountered in championship races for Gotland representatives Ed Mason & Richard Bartram.   Challenger Joe Yeaman attacked the duo in the last lap but was not able to make an impression and Mason and Bartram pulled clear with Mason taking the win.  Yeaman was rewarded by 12 second PB.
