Wroxham 5k Race 2 Rescheduled – Thursday 21 July 2016
This was the final race in the series, although on paper the rescheduled race two. The weather conditions were good on this occasion, sunny and mild. It was another excellent Jags turnout with 30 runners lining up on this occasion, in total 435 runners completed the race. It was nice to see a good support crew out again from our fellow Jaguars; this is always appreciated by the runners.
First jag over the line was Billy Life with an excellent chip time of 18.44 and a gold standard. Other gold standards achieved were by Peter Nelson, Melvyn Porter, Graham Johnson, Nicola Holden, Rosemary Jackson, Roy Owen and Tony Alborough. Silver standards were achieved by James Lambert, Tom Johnson, Stephen Pointer, Nicola Lambert, Lucy Anderson, Emma Wilcock, Vicky Tovell, Sonja White, Peter Kean-Cockburn, Ruth Pilch, Emma Jordan, Ruth Gainsford, Jackie Gooch and Mary Owen. Bronze standards were achieved by Stephen Neal, Claire Owen, Carolyn Gerber and Sharn Ponsford.
Ken Bowman put in another impressive performance and won his age category in a time of 20.21, earning a platinum standard. Rosemary Jackson came third in her age category, also achieving a pb of a time of 25.51. Heather Hollister also won her age category in a time of 26.26 earning a diamond standard.
9 pb’s were achieved by the Jaguars and Tony Alborough narrowly missed out on a pb by 1 second. Next time hey Tony!
