Worstead 5 Miles – Friday 29 July 2016
This year it was a flood of orange, rather than the rain of last year, as the Jags came out in force for the Worstead 5 mile race. Group photos were an issue as more Jags kept appearing leading to shouts of “wait”, I think we got to at least 4 attempts to get everyone in!
The sea of orange flowed through the race, encouraged by a good turn out of locals cheering the runners from outside their houses. First Jag home was Andy Mulligan with a fantastic time of 29:26 and an overall position of 12th. Both Jeremy Lawrence and Rosemary Jackson achieved PBs and Diamond standard. There were fantastic results overall with 9 PBs including Emma Blake – taking 5.50 minutes off her previous time and Netty Yeomanson – taking 4 mins off her previous time. First timers made a great show as well with James Lambert, Julian Smith, Hayley Fenwick, Ruth Pilch and Sonja White all achieving silver standards.
Although sadly not awarded on the night Hayley Fenwick achieved the prize for First Lady Worstead Resident, with her husband getting the First Male Worstead Resident prize, he just needs to join the Jags now to make them the perfect couple!
