Hanging out with Olympians!

Look who’s hanging out with Dame Kelly Holmes!

BTA’s Under 14 Jack Robinson completed his usual Saturday morning Park Run at Ashton Court this morning, only to realise that he was right behind double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes for most of the distance.

And there’s no better way to celebrate smashing your personal best, than to have a photo with a national icon wearing your Phones shirt!

Park Run runs a free 5k event EVERY Saturday morning in hundreds of locations around the world, Ashton Court being one of the toughest due to ‘the hill’, with runners coming from all over the country to tackle it.

Kelly Holmes said on Twitter ‘The park looks nice but I don’t see hills I see mountains!!!’

 

Since joining Park Run last year with the rest of his family, Jack’s running and fitness levels have improved immensely, regularly finishing within the top 100 of over 400 runners and within the top 3 in his age group.
