Adrian Haines, Crawley AC's multi-medal winning veteran runner competed in the British Masters Athletics Federation Championships at Birmingham. Adrian, in his own words, won "a disappointing silver" in the M45 1500m (4:18.86) on Saturday, but he returned on Sunday to win the M45 800m Gold (2:04.02). Adrian said he was very satisfied as he lead from the front and withheld 3 challenges with 200m and 100m to go and finished with a 'relaxed sprint, which felt good'.
