Harrier Matt produces his best yet in Seville test

Have your say

Sunderland Harrier Matt Jones, the winner of the Kielder and Hull Marathons last year, shattered his personal best in the Seville Marathon yesterday.

He took nearly eight minutes off his time from his previous best set in the Hull Marathon (2.35.26) to clock 2hr 27min 54sec to finish 38th in Seville.

The race was won by Kenya’s Cosmas Kiplimo Lagat in a course record of 2.08.14.
