    From the organiser

    Sizzling news is weve tweaked the course to now have a common start and finish located close to the 400m start line. Youll use lane 1 inbound. Outbound youll run clockwise and inbound anti clockwise. It was Confucius who said, To grow is to change, to become perfect is to have changed often so hope its even faster with that final 350m blast to the finish when you get back onto the track.

    In conjunction with this tweak, Ive decided to also launch a new era for course records. The Sizzlers hold amazing, nationally ranking 5k records (thats how fast the course is)but several are reasonably out of reach so to give you a new impetus well bank the current ones and begin a new era with last years fastest times.
