YDL UAG @ Yate
Another great day with NSAC taking on Team Avon, and East Wales Conglomerate teams at a cold and windy Yate Outdoor Sports Complex. A third place finish on the day, meaning NSAC remain second in the League was reward for the team’s efforts. Fourteen personal bests, and two NSAC Club records, both involving Jamie VDV. He beat his own 3000m record with 8;57.71 minutes, then linked with Will C, Ben H and Callum D to break the 4x400m record 3;53.07 minutes
