Athletes from the Endurance, Performance and Coaching Centre (EPACC) at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, produced great results at the first British Milers Club (BMC) Grand Prix in Watford on Saturday 17th May. Former EPACC athlete Jo Pavey won the women's 5000m to qualify for both the European Championships and Commonwealth Games, finishing the race at 15:11.52. Current student Beth Potter came second in the race, beating the Scottish qualifying time for the Commonwealth Games in July by running at 15:40.79. The women's 1500m event saw EPACC athlete Amy Griffiths finish at a time of 04:17.56, qualifying for the World Junior Championships which takes place in Eugene, Oregon in late July. A large number of the athletes finished their races at either a personal best or seasonal best time, to the delight of head coaches Mick Woods and Craig Winrow. This included current Sport Science and Management Studies student Michael Callegari in the men’s 5000m race (14:16.32), Daniel Chesseman in the men’s 1500m race (03:46.59) and Jessica Andrews in the women’s 5000m (16:19.66). Olympic semi-finalist Ross Murray secured a season’s best in the 1500m run (03:41.96). Happy with the results, Craig said, “This was a great evening for both myself and Mick Woods to see so many of our athletes either gain a personal best or a season's best. This was the first big meeting of the year and reflects well for the coming season for our athletes.”
