Last Wednesday evening Walpole St Andrew athlete Matt Pyatt produced a superb personal best performance on track for Hunts AC competing in the Eastern Veterans League.
Pyatt competed against the Eastern Veterans champions in both the M35 and M40 Category in the 3000m and an unfamiliar distance for the local athlete, and in a race onlookers described as incredibly quick and entertaining.
Pyatt came home second in his age group with a pb of 9 minutes and 12 secs knocking a whopping 13 seconds off his previous best recorded on July 20.
His performances helped Hunts to the runners-up spot in their division behind Bedford a much bigger club.
He will now go on the represent them in the ‘Evac’ final at Bedford on September 8.
