Mark Horsman earns hardware at Welsh Mile Road Race Championships

From Tivy Side Advertiser

Keen ultra distance runner Mark Horsman, a native of Aberporth, is always one for a challenge. He recently took part in the Welsh Mile Road Race Championships in Cardiff and was awarded a silver medal for his efforts, clocking 5 minutes, 10 seconds. The event was held the day before the Cardiff Half Marathon, which Mark also completed as part of his training for the Snowdonia Marathon.

"The Mile race was held on a two loop circuit at Cardiff’s Civic Centre and I was signed up for the Masters race.
