Amsterdam Marathon, Great Yarmouth Marathon, Great Yarmouth 10k
A busy weekend for the Jaguars, with Mark Harmer travelling furthest to complete the Amsterdam marathon in and excellent bronze standard 3.37.27.
Other marathon runners were Andrew Mulligan and Becky Durant who ran a one off race to celebrate 25 years of Great Yarmouth Road Runners. Held over 3 laps of a flat seafront course the race became more difficult as it went on as the weather became colder and windier, but both Jaguars ran very well, Andy with a bronze standard 3.22.25 and Becky with a bronze standard 5.35.32.
Held in conjunction with the marathon the annual East Coast Run took in part of the same course in a change from the route used in previous years. This obviously suited most of the Jaguars who took part with some great results. Lawrence Wade was first to cross the line for the club with a gold standard time of 37.45. Not far behind was Matthew Stone who in a time of 38.23 took first place overall in the Male V40 category. Ellie Bye was first lady home, in the process smashing both her personal best and taking 2 minutes from the club 10k record. She also took third prize in the senior female category and together with Christine Cooke and Claire Owen took third place in the ladies team category. Scott Chadwick, Christine Cooke and David Brailey also ran personal bests whilst Sze-Ming Cheung ran the distance for the first time.
