As usual ‘Ipswich Jaffa’ turned on the good weather for ‘The Ekiden Relays’ which was welcomed by the 115 teams competing. The event is run over the marathon distance of 26.2 miles with 6 members in each team running varying distances. Our first team home, in 50th position, were ‘The Misfits’ in an overall time of 3.14.38. The ‘Foxes’ were 73rd in 3.28.30 and ‘The Dreamteam’ 114th in 4.25.53. New members Steve Wragg, Vanessa Clements and Jenny Welsh ran in their orange vests for the first time and hopefully enjoyed the experience.
