Collingswood’s Josh Forrest runs all-time #8 Colonial Conference 2M in Virginia!!

Collingswood senior Josh Forrest ran 9:25.55 for a full two miles Saturday at the East Coast Invitational at the Virginia Beach Sports Center.

Forrest ran 4:41.7 and 4:43.9 placed 10th overall. It was his first race since running 15:23.65 for 5,000 meters in October in an outdoor 5,000 in Edison.

Forrest has run mainly the 800 and 1,600 in his high school career on the track, and this was his first 3,200 or two-mile either indoors or outdoors.

A 9:25.55 converts to 9:22.27 for 3,200 meters, which would put Forrest at No. 26 in South Jersey history and No. 8 by a Colonial Conference two-miler. Here’s the all-time Colonial Conference sub-9:30 list:
