Reepham 10K – Sunday 21 August 2016
The Reepham 10k is in its 12th year and advertised as a multi terrain course intended for all levels of running ability – it certainly lived up to this billing with a spread of times from 34.18 (Dominic Blake winning by nearly 2 minutes) to 1.42.58 (the legendary Louis Miller)
The course started out on country lanes and just after the 5k mark turned on to Marriots way all the way back to Reepham where the finish line was across a field.
9 Jags in the field starting together but soon got spread out amongst the 258 competitors.
The guys won the day in every respect, all 7 beating Sharn and Ruth to the line with some excellent times, and also winning on the random ‘spot’ prize raffle!
Tom Johnson was first jag home in 41.23 (20th place overall). And another excellent performance in second place for the jags Graham Johnson in 44.59 (41st place)
Best moments of course were the interjag races – Stewart and Julian had a close race coming in 51 and 52nd place respectively (46.08 and 46.19) and Sharn chased Paul G all the way to the line but just couldn’t catch him with 53.43 and 53.48 respectively.
Another very good run from Owie – 51.34 – well done!
