Maise Trafford runs a club improvement record for the women’s 10k

A new club improvement record for the women’s 10k
The women’s 10k club records have stood the test of time and have been a very hard chase to make in to the club records such has been the calibre of these records. Looking at the records, we can go back as far as 1998 when Lynn Williams recorded a time of 34.28 which is the 2nd best women’s 10k time and even the best time of 33.27 set by Caroline Hoyte was set way back in 2008, so these records do not come easily if you want to make it to the hall of fame of the Arena club records.
However this year one of our ladies has made it in to the top 5 when she set a time of 35.40 at Chichester at the beginning of the year to take her place in 4th spot to become the first lady to appear in the ladies 10k records since 2011, it is of course Masie Trafford. Now not content with making it in to the top 5 Maisie Trafford has just bettered her time and claimed a new PB at the Vitality 10k ran in London last weekend with a new PB time of 35.21 thus improving her previous time. Maisie looks to be getting stronger and her running has gone to another level for her this year. Just to add to this report, according to the Run Britain rankings, Masie is ranked 2nd in Britain for the Women’s U23 10 mile category with her time of 60.58 that she ran in Maidenhead this year just to prove that she is going from strength to strength. Congratulations Masie.
