ATH­LET­ICS RICHARD Good­man took a 26-sec­ond vic­tory in the first Metropoli­tan Cross Coun­try League race at Clay­bury Park in Wood­ford Green.

The St Mary’s Univer­sity stu­dent recorded 24:36 for the 8,000m course.

Good­man, 22, said: “I hadn’t been sure of en­ter­ing be­cause of a slight in­jury worry, and then I had a fur­ther con­cern when I put my foot in a pot­hole half-way round. But I man­aged to pull away to run the last lap on my own, and it was pleas­ing start of the sea­son for me.”

Deena Kas­tor, 42, im­proved the Amer­i­can Mas­ters Marathon record by al­most a minute, record­ing 2:27:47 at the Chicago Marathon. It was Kas­tor’s first sub 2:30 time since 2006.
