San Silvestre Vallecana 10k – Madrid, Spain 31st Dec 2011

Susan Partridge took over 30 seconds off her best, with her first sub-33 minute 10k, though as the course is downhill it won’t count in the Power of Ten rankings. 

Susan finished 3rd with 32.44,just over a minute behind Olympic 5000m and 10,000m champion Tirunesh Dibaba and Gelete Burka, after she had passed halfway in 15.38, nine seconds behind the leading pair, who both clocked 31.30.

In 20th place, Sarah Peterson was over a minute inside her previous best time for the distance with 37.20 on the downhill course.
