There is a new club record that has been added to the Men’s Worthing parkrun records.
Now listen up you men, I think you need to sit up and take notice of this up and coming lad who goes by the name of Alex Jago. He may not be around at our Monday night training sessions but this lad is quietly doing the training business elsewhere and starting to look very good for it.
2017 saw Jago PB at every event from 600m up to 10k and clocking in some superb times with his 800m at 2.02.54 and his 10k time at 35.00, this lad has seen a superb rise with his times.
Alex took to Worthing on Saturday 20th January to take on the parkrun over there. The conditions were not particularly favourable for a PB run however Alex gave it a go and his 16.29 was good enough to take him to the top of the tree equal with another young pup by the name of James Dicks who has held top spot since 2016.
I’m sure had the weather been a little kinder then Alex may have sneaked under this time but still a great effort from him.
What’s more impressive about this run is that Alex was using this parkrun as part of a training run so would not have been going as fast as he could of. I feel there is lot of potential here and a lot more to come yet. This name could certainly be gracing some more of the club records before the year is out.
I believe this is the first time Alex Jago has featured in the men’s club records in some way but the men had better start taking notice after this run as this may not be the last we hear of him for 2018.
Congratulations Alex on a top performance and welcome to the wall of fame, I think you may be there for quite some time yet.
The new club records now look like this:
