A fantastic turn out of Jaguars for this annual half marathon. Despite the most awful weather, some equally fantastic times were achieved!!
First Jag to finish was Lee Collins with a superb time of 1:26:28 achieving him a gold standard award.
Jackie Bye ran another phenomenal race achieving a time of 1:53:20 – yet another diamond standard – go Jackie!!!! Like mother like daughter as Ellie Bye finished in a time of 1:36:01 and achieved a gold standard!
Another gold standard was achieved by Jonathon Foot (1:41:10), followed by four more bronze standard awards that go to Matthew Crane (1:39:36), Scott Shrubsall (1:41:46), Martin Bagnall (1:49:40) and Rebecca Hall (1:49:57).
Well done to all that took part!
James Lambert was the only Coltishall Jaguar to travel to Bungay and compete in this half marathon, James achieved a time of 1:46:03, giving James a bronze standard! Well done James!!
Leicester may not be the first place you would think of to run a marathon or indeed a half marathon, but nevertheless the 2014 event proved another success with a sell-out crowd for the three events. Four Jags drove the length of the A47 westbound from Norwich: one ran the marathon; the other three – the half marathon.
Paul Groves donned his stylish, new style Jags T-Shirt and ran the coveted 26.2 miles in a chip time of 4:26:13. Well done Paul!
There were three Jags featured in the half marathon (chip time in parentheses): Annette Yeomanson (2:45:51), Jenny Welsh, (2:51:05) and Vee Clements (2:51:06).
Eight of our Orange Army ran in NNBR’s popular autumn multi-terrain 10K based at the picturesque grounds of Gresham School.
First home was proud, new dad Mark Harmer, who ran a gold standard time of 40:47. The sub 40 barrier, again, eludes him despite a 18:51 recent ParkRun – keep plugging away Mark, it will come and when it does, it will be the norm.
There seems to be a pattern emerging in Jags veteran ladies running – run fast parkruns regularly and expect the prize to be a new 10K PB along with an age-category record. Top performance goes to Vicky Tovell, unofficially scoring a PB and to boot, unofficially breaking the Women’s 40-44 age category record in a gold standard time of 46:49. Make it official, Vicky – choose a full road race, keep the momentum up and do it…very soon!
Deb Jones makes a welcome return to racing in her new age category “sneaking” in a sub 50 time of 49:51 (silver).
Father and son team, Graham Johnson (48:45, bronze) and Tom Johnson (43:41, silver) ran their first 10Ks for the club.
Sixteen Jags flocked to the seaside on a warm(ish!) albeit blustery autumn morning. There were some excellent running on display with The Jags seemingly wiping the floor with the age category cash prizes. First Jag home was Sze-Ming Cheung in 38:35 who also bagged £20 2nd prize in the male 40-44 category. Ellie Bye isn’t a stranger to winning and also walked away with 2nd prize in the senior female category in a time of 44:38
Roy Owen, in his last ever race, bowed out in style with 1st prize in the male 65+ category with a time of 50:44. A job well done Roy – now enjoy running and cycling for the health and social benefits it brings!
Not content with the female 35-39 10k record recently acquired, Alexandra Bland continued her fine form running a time of 46:47 and walking away with a purple note and 2nd place in her age category. In the female 55-59 age category, Jackie Bye took 1st prize (£30) in a diamond standard winning time of 50:12.
In the Club team prizes, Sze-Ming Cheung, Mel Porter and Rod Bye picked up 3rd place in the veteran male category. Not to be outdone, Ellie Bye, Alexandra Bland and Lisa Symon also gained 3rd prize in the senior female category.
In the individual results, Jackie Bye continues to impress with her “diamond” running ability while Lisa Symon and Ben Dennington both earned new PBs for their gutsy running. Well done to Alicia Lacey and Sharn Ponsford for completing their first 10K race for the Club.
|Ben Dennington||40:27 (PB)||Silver|
|Lisa Symon||48:33 (PB)||Bronze|
|Alicia Lacey||48:41 (1st)||Bronze|
|Sharn Ponsford||52:07 (1st)||SIlver|
An all male cast stars in this year’s “flat and fast” Peterborough Half Marathon. Ben Dennington romped past the finishing line first for the Jags in a new PB chip time of 1:28:06 (Gold) and breaking the 90 minute barrier for the first time impressively knocking some five minutes off his previous best at the same race last year. Stand on the start line next time if you want a better time and not get caught up, Ben!
Next to come in was Stewart Marden in 1:40:27 – an increase in time of over 6 minutes from his PB at this distance from last year at the same race and 27 seconds shy of Gold standard. Come on Mr. Marden, you can do better – much better!
Martin Bagnall, on the other hand, is making steady progress and improved on his last HM event back in March this year, completing the race in 1:46:21 (Silver). Completing the “four amigos”, Paul Gerber ran a chip time of 1:59:02.
Chase the Train is a 8.9 mile point-to-point multi-terrain race from Aylsham to Wroxham. It follows the footpath next to the Bure Valley Railway, Norfolk’s longest narrow guage steam railway. Once finished, competitors can then catch a Free Return Train from Wroxham.
This year’s race featured four Jaguars. 1st across the line for the Club and 2nd overall was Richard Bateson in a time of 51:43. Alan Bushell came in 23rd in a time of 1:01:22. Jonathon Foot finished in 37th in a time of 1:07:01. Finally, Anthony Norris’s time of 1:09:23 netted him 45th place. There were 141 finishers. Full Results
This out and back multi-terrain course marathon starts at the Ely Cathedral and passes through the City of Ely and onto the river bank of the River Great Ouse. Runners follow this path to Wicken Fen, the first ever National Trust site, the halfway and turnaround point. Runners then follow the same route back to the ‘Ship of the Fens’.
Sonya Wragg flew the flag for The Jags in this autumn marathon based in the county of Cambridgeshire. In her first marathon distance race, she ran a very respectable 4 hours 22 minutes placing her 23rd out of 48 finishers.
