Spenborough AC’s Joe Sagar continued his magnificent road race season by winning the Wakefield 10K last Sunday to complete a terrific hat-trick of successess.

Sagar’s impressive record began when he finished second at the Dewsbury 10K in February with a personal best run and followed up with victory at the Liversedge Half Marathon when he knocked over three minutes off his PB.
