It was “fine” all round for the Jaguars at the first of three Wroxham 5K race series: fine weather, a fine turnout and importantly, some truly fine performances. The fast course enabled Ellie Bye to produce a PB time, an inaugural sub 20 minutes run on a records qualifying 5K event and breaking her own club record for the distance to boot. In similar vein, Sue Allen cruised to a platinum standard PB time and also took the 55-59 age category record with her at the first attempt.
In the individual prizes, the females rule with Ellie Bye coming 2nd in the senior category. Placing 3rd in the very competitive 55-59 category was Sue Allen and winning second prize was Heather Hollister in the 60+ category.
More than half of the Jaguars field attained PB times with 3 members running the distance for club for the first time.

Twelve Jaguars ran the second race in the series. But on this occasion, less is definitely more as six members ran a PB time – a good conversion for the number of club entries. Performance picking, Ellie Bye claimed 1st prize in the senior ladies category. Andy Mulligan came in the top ten finishers (9th) while veteran ladies Dee Neal and Mary Owen, both knocked some serious amount of time off their performances from race one: 63 and 67 seconds, respectively, in fact. Dee bagging Gold standard in the process and Mary only seconds off it but attaining a new personal best time. Go for Gold in the final race, Mary! Full Results

Three Jaguars travelled to the West Norfolk border to run GEAR 10K. The King’s Lynn town centre race sold out for the first time in its history with the 2100 limit reached a few hours before close of entry. Both Sze-Ming Cheung and James Lambert saw benefit in running the handicap 10K race as a fitness test the previous week, with Sze-Ming clocking a PB chip time of 38:25 (gold) and running 5 seconds shy of diamond standard – try a “little” harder next time, Sze-Ming! Meanwhile, James Lambert slashed 1:52 off his previous best and ran a chip time of 46:15 and earning him his first bronze standard for the distance. Not to be outdone, Alan Bushell crossed the finish in a gold standard chip time of 41:21 just 12 seconds off his PB set on the same course last year. Full Results
In total 12 members took part in local Parkruns this week: 3 at Catton; 4 at Blickling; 1 at Norwich; 2 at Gorleston and 2 at Fritton. Notably, Graham Cox, again, ran a personal best at Norwich Eaton Parkrun in a time of 22:56 (Gold) slashing off 34 seconds. That’s now two in a row and 3 PBs in his last 5 Norwich Parkruns. How low can you go Mr. Cox? A diamond (standard) will be Graham’s best friend very soon at this rate! Members’ Results
22 members took part in the first of seven races in this year’s Club Handicap Series where Swanton Abbott (Previous Valentines 10K Course) played host.
It was the “Day of the Dames” as four of the six double digit points went to female members with the top three positions all taken up by ladies. Fiona Baldwin (+6:20 handicap. 54:08 actual time) produced a “phoenix-esque” performance to claim race winner, bagging a healthy 25 points in the process and knocking some four minutes off her predicted finishing time. First male through was Paul Gerber (+12:45 handicap. 50:32 actual time) who finished in 4th place overall and scored 13 points.
Ben Denington came tantalizingly close to sub 40 recording 40:10 actual time. Fastest actual time of the day was posted by Sze-Ming Cheung who ran 39:30. Several entrants ran Pseudo PBs , testimony to the fact that these races can and do bring the best out of members’ abilities and are excellent for confidence boosting. Similarly, a number of members ran the distance for the first time. Again, their performances will set them up well in future affiliated races should they choose to enter them.
THE NEXT RACE IS 1 JUNE: WROXHAM 5K. Click above logo for full details of series. All members are welcome to the Club Handicap Races – they make the perfect setting for member bonding, mental/physical race preparation and competitiveness without the pressure. ONLY 4 OF THE 7 RACES COUNT so it’s still “anyone’s race”. However, you’ve got to be in it to win it!
