Dick Callan's 43 year old 1500m club record falls to Ben Dijkstra!


Ben Dijkstra is certainly having the season of his life. The U15b is already top of the Power of 10 with his 3000m time of 8:55.05 and he holds the club record for this time. Now he has smashed Dick Callan's 1500m club record of 4:07.08 which has stood since 1970. Ben's time of 4:04.50 also puts him second on the Power of 10.

Ben was racing at the Birmingham University BMC races on Wednesday 26th June where he finished in 5th place in heat 1.
