BMC Birmingham University – 21 April 2021

The first BMC meeting of 2021 got the season off to a great start with a BMC record for Jess Judd. It came in the 3000m as Jess in 8:52.73 led Jenny Nesbitt 9:04.75 and Sarah Astin 9:11.37 to personal best times.

This run broke the BMC record for an all-female 3000m previously held by Melissa Courtney-Bryant.

The men’s equivalent was also outstanding with Jonny Davies showing great form to win in 7:53.61 as Phil Sesemann 7:57.44 and David Mullarkey 7:58.98 also went sub-eight.

The 3000m races were just one part of an excellent evening of great racing, with many notable early season performances. Ben Greenwood looked strong in taking the men’s 800m in 1:48.72, with the women’s race being won by Katie Kirk in 2:05.17 after an attacking first lap. The women’s 1500m was a quality affair as top 800m runners Alex Bell and Revee Walcott-Nolan battled it out, with Alex prevailing in 4:14.39 to 4:14:88. Personal bests for Louise Shanahan 4:15.27 and Emily Thompson 4:19.32 meant four went sub 4:20. In the men’s race Adam Clarke led the first three laps at well under 3:40 pace, before a dramatic last lap saw the field close and overtake him, with U20 Henry Mcluckie winning in 3:42.71 from Tiarnan Crorken with a personal best 3:43.65.

Many thanks to the University of Birmingham
