This event marks the end of track season for many, and the attention now turns to cross country preparation for those athletes who will be competing over the autumn and winter months.
Meanwhile John Fitzsimons rounded out his great season last week in the British Milers Grand Prix meeting at Eltham with another impressive personal best of 3:41.66 over 1500m. John will take a well-earned break and we look forward to seeing him in action again in 2022.
