Headington Roadrunner Tracy Galbraith smashed the course record as she cruised to victory in the Didcot 5 on Sunday.

More than 120 athletes braved the blustery and showery conditions, but Galbraith made light work of the course to win the race in 29mins 46secs, beating the previous record by more than two minutes.

In the men's race, Abingdon Ambler Paul Fernandez won the event for the second year in a row, knocking 20 seconds off his winning time from last year to cross the line in 27.30.

The accompanying two-mile fun run saw a large field.

George Vaughan was the first across the line, clocking 12.16, with Rebecca Robinson winning the girls' race in a time of 12.28.

  • Abingdon Amblers' Beth Hampson had a double-winning debut for her second-claim club Milton Keynes.

Hampson was competing for the first time in an Under 20 National Junior League match in Hemel Hempstead and leapt to 4.72m to take the long jump and also won the 200m in 26.8secs.

Fellow Ambler Luke Chown, who also runs for Milton Keynes, won the men's under 20 100m in 11.1secs.
