Paul and Josh beat previous best for father-and-son combined times in half-marathon
Helpston Harriers now boast two world record holders on their roster after Paul Lunn and son Josh shattered the previous best for father and son combined times in a half-marathon.
The talented twosome did not disappoint in a high-class field at Reading where a combined time of 2hrs 20mins 33secs saw the pair re-write the record books by knocking more than four minutes of the previous mark.
Lunn the younger found himself sharing early wind-shielding duties with a good sized pack which included former Nene Valley star Chris Wright and New Zealand ace Paul Martelleti, as he set off at a pace that he hoped would see him finish in around 67 minutes.
