Cambridge & Coleridge AC’s Marc Scott makes rise up all-time British rankings
Marc Scott has moved up to fourth in the British 3,000m rankings.
The Cambridge & Coleridge AC member was competing in the Prickley Pear Invitational in Arizona at the weekend.
He clocked 7min 36.08sec to better his previous outdoor best for the distance of 7.43.37, which was achieved in London in 2017.
It means that Scott has jumped to fourth from 22nd, behind Mo Farah (7.32.62), Dave Moorcroft (7.32.79) and Brendan Foster (7.35.1).
“A nice 3km coming out of altitude,” Scott said to the Bowerman Track Club.
“We’ve been up there for five weeks now so we just wanted to come down and see our fitness and how we’re getting on ready for a big race in a couple of weeks over 10km. It was good, the guys ran really well and I managed to get the win in 7:36.”
