Alistair back in the saddle

May 2, 2011 [Noel Guiden] – (Updated May 4, 2011) Good to report that Alistair Cragg got back racing over the weekend only two weeks after his great disappointment in the Boston Marathon where severe blisters on both feet forced him to call a halt at 20k. Alistair returned to his happy hunting ground of Stanford University yesterday for the Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational where he ran the 5,000m. In a tactical race which saw a fast finish Alistair finished 8th in 13.30.21, as some 4 and a half seconds covered the top 8.

Cementing his recent good form David Flynn ran another PB with a time of 8.52.19 in the 3000m Steeplechase edging ever closer to Des McCormacks 41 year old club record of 8.46.6.
