FOREST of Dean Athletic Club runner Cory Sherwin finished third in the Rogue Runs Fission 20-mile road race on Saturday (March 18) at Berkeley in a time of 1:58.49.

It came only a few weeks after he finished the Barcelona Half Marathon in a club record time of 1:12.08.

The record had stood for around 20 years.

The second FoDAC man at Fission was Andy Raynor – also known as FOD Runner – who also managed a sub two hour finish in 1:59.49 for ninth

Other Forest of Dean AC runners in the 20 mile race were Kelly Ruck (2:59.58), Becky Westlake (3:08.31) and Gary Burley (3:16.21).
