JAKE SHELLEY – Produced his best performance on the track breaking 8 minutes (7:59.57) for 3000m at the BMC meeting in Sheffield on 10 January. This puts him at No.6 on the Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers all-time list behind Dave Bedford (7:46.4 – 1972), Julian Goater (7:48.66 – 1980), James Espir (7:51.92 – 1980), Anthony Whiteman (7:52.62 – 2002), John Sherban (7:58.47 – 1991). JAKE told me he plans to run an 800m and mile at altitude in Albuquergue, New Mexico on the 24 January and 31 January respectively, and then try and run a quick time over the mile or 3000m back at sea level in Seattle on 14 February. He will do some races in America in April, May and June before coming back for his main target race, the UK Championships on 3-5 July.
The following link is an article written by JAKE on his cross country season when he first went to New Mexico University in August 2013, it is an excellent read. Click here
