FLASH FROM GAP - Jacob 8th in Euro Champs
Flash news from the Euro Mountain Running Champs in Gap, France is that Jacob Adkin has finished in a fantastic 8th place in the Junior Men's race. He passed the half-way mark of the two-lap up and down course in 15th place, 2nd Brit 25 seconds behind Andrew Lawler and would appear to have had a storming second lap to come home one place and 1 second behind Andrew at the line. The body clock adjustments over the last two weeks which disturbed the Adkin household at 5.30am as Jacob prepared to be ready to race at his best at 8.30am our time has paid off! More to follow. Also Sarah McCormack 17th in the women's race in only her second race back after a lengthy injury lay-off.
