Wissey Half Marathon – Sunday 3 September 2016
On the first weekend in September, four Jags tackled the Wissey half marathon from the picturesque if somewhat blustery West Norfolk village of Oxborough. On arrival no chip timing was a surprise but we all set out on the undulating course with great purpose. First Jag home was Tony Alborough 1:29:43 Gold, closely followed by Neil Button 1:45:30 FT Silver (good warmup for Peterborough). Then came the two ladies, Lucy Anderson in a very competitive 1:47:41 Bronze and finally Ruth Gainsford who for me produced the performance of the day in her first proper half marathon, storming up the finishing straight in 2:00:19 FT Silver.
