The British Masters 10K Championships 2022 took place in Grangemouth, Scotland, and alongside some excellent performances, it was local runner Alastair Walker who really shone as he broke the British men’s 65+ 10K record and smashed the world record by over a minute with a time of 34:32.

What makes Walker's performance more remarkable is that he only returned to running in 2018 after a 22-year break from the sport. Since his return, he's been no slouch and won gold in the men’s 60+ 10K at the World Masters Championship in Malaga, Spain and bronze in the 5,000m for the 60-65 age group.

Just goes to show, you can run your best at any age!
