Caleb Stephenson finished fifth in the under 17 men’s 800m in a fantastic time of 2min 04secs, knocking almost four seconds off his personal best.

She crossed the line with two other athletes, but missed out on second place by two-hundredths of a second and finished fourth in 44.8secs.

Isabelle Dhami ran in a non-scoring under 17 women’s 1500m steeplechase and clocked an excellent time of 6min 05.1secs which placed her second in the main race.

* Ruth Edison and Clare Koslow ran together at the Click’em Inn 10-mile race.

They finished in a respectable time of 1hr 30min 24secs for 71st and 72nd, respectively, out of 92 runners.
