A good club turnout saw 20 Jaguars make the trip to the east coast and run the first out of three races of this popular midweek series. Pick of the performances were Roy Owen, who in his first 5 miler for the club, ran a diamond standard time of 38:06 and Mark Harmer (our latest fresh faced veteran!), who’s finishing time of 31:24 earned him a new gold standard PB. In total 5 Jaguars ran personal best times. Full Results

The Daffodil Dawdle, now in its 25th year, was a successful event in more ways than one: “What a difference a year makes! No snow, fine weather and almost no mud. A record entry and a record number of finishers!” is how the Results Editor, David Laight described the event. Our very own Ben Letzer, gave the 26.6 mile long route “ultramarathon” distance a crack (yes, anything over 26.2 marathon distance is deemed an “ultramarathon”!). Finishing in 4 hours dead, Ben placed joint second in a field where approximately half “ran” the Long Distance Walkers’ Association event.
The 2014 London Marathon certainly proved to be the “year of the debutant”. Running behind Mo Farah’s inaugural full marathon appearance were 9 Jaguars, 7 of whom were also making their club debuts at the distance. This year also saw female Jaguars dominate the field of club members at the race with 7 lady members taking part in the coveted 26.2 mile event.

Whilst several jaguars took on the London Marathon, one member went to the “number two” national sporting event today – The Cambridge Duathlon (7.5k run/40k bike/7.5k run) held in the village of Bottisham on the outskirts of the City itself. With participation in Ironman Sweden looming, Richard Collyer’s race aim was to try and keep pacing comfortable, ultimately attempting to run the second leg quicker than the first – which he achieved. His split times of 34:16/1:17:01/33:56 culminated in a finish time of 2:27:39 placing him 54th overall and 4th in the 45-49 age category.

Nine Jaguars travelled to the county border in windy and changeable weather conditions to compete in four events:
Lowestoft 5 Mile Promenade Dash. Three Lady Jaguars were in force at the UK’s most easterly point 5 mile race. Jackie Bye was first Jaguar home in a time of 41:00 (gold) while Rebecca Durant ran a gold standard time 45:31. Both came first in their respective age categories. Christine Cooke finished in 46:14, giving her a bronze standard performance. Full Results
Bungay Black Dog Marathon & Half Marathon. Melvyn Porter was the Jaguars’ sole representative in this year’s Bungay Black Dog Marathon. Described as a “marathon runner’s marathon”, the undulating double lap course, a sparse field of athletes and supporters (relative to the distance) and this year’s gusty conditions made for a tough physical and mental running test. This, however, didn’t stop Melvyn from running a personal best time for the distance in a chip time of 3:47:41 (bronze) coming in 65th out of 168 finishers. Marathon Full Results
The Half-Marathon which is one lap of the marathon course and starts 2 hours after the full marathon, attracted two Jaguars entries: Jonathon Foot crossed the finishing line in a silver standard chip time of 1:54:43 while Paul Groves completed the race in a chip time of 2:02:28.

Diss Duathlon. The only non pure running event in the County Race Calendar continues to attract a sell-out field in 2014. This popular event consists of a 5.1km run transitioning to a 30km road bike leg and completing the race with another 5.1km run. Traditionally, with the Jaguars’ plethora of cross training athletes, the club is well represented. This year saw a relatively low club field of entry with Andy Mulligan, Alan Bushell and Adele Bushell taking on the race. Of note is Andrew Mulligan’s total time of 1:38:46 which gave him 15th place overall and 5th in his age category (20-29). Full Results
Roy Owen ran a 5k personal best time at Norwich Parkrun. His time of 23:36 tops his previous best by 4 seconds set at Gorleston Parkrun and earns him a club gold standard performance.
