101 personal bests (and 59 season’s bests) from the 258 finishers was the remarkable tally on a lovely Saturday evening, as the direct partnership between Loughborough University and British Milers Club was re-instated for the first time for many years at the Paula Radcliffe Stadium.
The event, prefaced by an coaching forum in the early afternoon, helped showcase the ever growing quality of athletics competition provision on the Loughborough campus and highlighted the Endurance heritage that continues to be fostered here.
