Ellie Bye was determined to get the club record back after it was taken away from her when the course at Norwich had been measured short. So today, on an accurate course, she ran an excellent gold standard time of 20.32.

Just 1 year after joining the club with the beginners running sessions Jenny Welsh and Annette Yeomanson were amongst the 14, 000 runners to take part in the Barcelona Half Marathon. The race went through the Gothic quarter, then the streets of Barcelona before finishing on the coast and on a lovely day for running they were cheered the whole way round the course by large crowds to times of 2.39.05 for Annette and 2.45.15 for Jenny. For both ladies this was their first half marathon, and clearly undaunted, their entries are already in for the Amsterdam Half in October.
For any Jaguars thinking of running races abroad, Jenny and Annette used the services of Running Crazy and are full of praise for the service they received. They arranged accommodation, transfers, collection of race numbers as well as organising a post run celebration and providing a DVD containing video footage and photos.
Mark and Charlotte Harmer took a trip down to Brighton to compete in the Brighton Half Marathon and on what turned out to be an unusually hot day both turned in excellent performances. Mark took almost 3 minutes off his previous best time running a silver standard 1.31.43. This was Charlotte’s first half marathon and she managed to overcome her race nerves to finish in a time 2.09.59.
The final in this off road duathlon took place on February 17th round the paths of Fritton lake. The race comprises a 3k off road run, 10k cross country bike ride and finishes with a 3k run. Alan Bushell competed the three events and came away with the overall prize in the 40-44 age group. Ben Dennington completed the final race in the series in 53.44 and Emily Hannant finished strongly in a time of 1.06.22.

On the 9th February Eddie Robson took an impressive 31 seconds off his time to run a silver standard 22.36.

The new Valentine 10k course at Easton College proved to be a success as 5 of the 10 members who ran achieved p.b’s. Three of the Jags were in the prizes with Ken Bowman, Sarah Jay and Jackie Bye winning their age groups.

Peter Cobb ran the Hanover ‘5’ at Wirksworth Moor on New Years Day so I expect Peter had a hangover too. He was third over 60 in a silver standard time of 41.17.
