The 4.75 miles Lowestoft Scores is Britain’s most easterly hill race with a total of 401 steps so you need to be pretty fit to run it. Three of the five Jags who turned up to run found the hills helpful in their build up to the Round Norfolk Relay. Lawrence Wade was first home for the club finishing in 8th position overall in a time of 28.45 . Alan Bushell ran 34.00 and finished in 45th position. Sarah Jay ran 38.07 and came away with the first 45+ lady trophy. Emily Hannant, back after a break from running, ran 39.16. Adele Bushel ran 42.24. and was 3rd 45+ lady. Full Results

Andy Mulligan and Jonny Reader tok the plunge into Wells Quay and beyond for the North Norfolk Triathlon. The Olympic distance race comprised a 1 mile swim, 40k cycle and 10k run, and just for fun a great deal of the run was on the beach!! Both had excellent results. From a field of 242 Andy finished in 28th place with a total time of 2.14.41 (swim 23.30/cycle 1.06.02/run 42.46) and Jonny came in 51st in 2.18.28. (24.10/1.08.44/43.13)
On a beautiful day for running 9 Jaguars travelled to Oxborough for the Wissey Half Marathon. Colin Robilliard was 20th overall, taking first place in his age category. Dean Blake and Richard Collyer both ran personal bests, Dean taking around 13 minutes from his previous record. Owen Barber ran the race distance for the first time for the club. Sze-Ming Cheung, Mark Harmer and Dawn Collyer all used the race as training for their various forthcoming marathon efforts.

Two weeks on the trot Mary Owen has achieved a 5k p.b. Mary’s time is now down to 27.47 and a 60-64 age gold standard. It’s amazing what training with a group can do. Come on Claire – don’t let Mum have all the glory. Eddie Robson ran his 100th Park Run and was presented with a tee shirt and jacket.
The Grimsthorpe 10k is set in the beautiful grounds of Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire. The event is run in conjunction with the Grimsthorpe carnival so the day out not only consist of the run but also provides music by some good bands, numerous stalls and many various activities plus a wonderful collection of classic cars and motorbikes which transported the boys back to their childhood. The start of the race is down a steep long grassy slope and then hits some hard hills up to the 5k point and the second half isn’t much easier either with quite a few uphills too. The finish is up the hill you started on so all in all it is a pretty tough course. The weather was unbelievably hot with quite a few drop outs along the way but the 4 Jags who ran stuck to their guns and actually seemed to enjoy the pain but I suppose they are used to it in training!! Lawrence Wade had a great run finishing 5th overall and missing out on a prize by just one place in 38.22. Ady Jay on one of his many come back runs really struggled with the heat and nearly collapsed at the end but still finished in 46.24. Sarah Jay was strong on the hills and finished second in her 45+ age group missing out on first place by just 1 minute in 51.11. Brenda Hutcheon having not run a 10k for as long as she can remember (but that could have been yesterday) finished 1st in the 65+ age group in 61.11. Many thanks to Dave Hutcheon who was the baggage man and team support on the day. Believe it or not everyone is looking forward to next time. It would be good to get a few more Jags out and aim for a possible team prize.

On the 10th August at the Norwich Park Run Roy Owen ran a p.b. time of 24.14 so not to be outdone by dad Claire Owen also ran a p.b. in 25.05. Mum Mary Owen thought she had better get in on the act so on the 17th at Gorleston ran a p.b. time of 29.13. The same day at Norwich Lisa Symon ran her 7th p.b. of the year in 24.06.
Only 4 Jaguars ran the Great Yarmouth half marathon but all ran well on what is quite a testing course. Colin Robilliard ran his usual excellent race with a Platinum standard time of 1.26.28 in the process taking first place in his age category. Jonny Reader with a silver standard time of 1.34.07 was next Jaguar to finish and was well inside his own predicted time. Paul Allen in his first race at the distance for the club ran it in 1.44.46. Dawn Collyer used the race as marathon training so paced it accordingly, she finished in 2.08.22 then went on to run another 4 miles to complete her weekly long run.
Based in Cromer this is a new event for this year comprising a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and a full marathon. The race was open to individuals to complete the whole event or for teams of three in a relay, with each member completing one of the legs. Andy Mulligan took the marathon leg on at fairly short notice when one of the teams lost a member due to injury. The run consisted of 4 laps around Cromer, each lap including a very steep climb from the Promenade up to the lighthouse at 75 metres. Despite the tough nature of the course Andy still managed an excellent time of 3 hours 52 mins 11 secs, which helped his team to 4th place overall.
Not quite the record turnout of last year but still 42 Jaguars turned out for the annual orange procession round the Worstead 5.
