WROXHAM 5K RACE 2 12/06/2019

The usual great turnout of Jaguars for this series brought plenty of orange to this event! The heavy rain during the day probably put a few people off but it eased away for the start of the race, and in fact conditions were perfect for running.I have it on good authority that there is more oxygen available in the air when the weather is damp, so there were quite a few PBS on the night and some owners of orange vests going up for awards. It was a shame the junior race had to be cancelled due to thegrass track being slippery. The new car parking arrangements worked well, with a few clubs being allocated the playground at St John’s Primary on the Horning Road. All in all it was a good event with a great atmosphere, and most people seemed to come awaywith a smile on their faces!

gt Yarmouth 5 mile race 3 22/05/2019

GY Race 3 There was a great turnout of 40 Jaguars for the final race in the Great Yarmouth 5 mile series for 2019. Runners again had to contend with a headwind in the home straight but this did not stop twelve Jags achieving PBs including Shane Bidle for three out of three in the series, Nick Eley who achieved first place in his age group and Nicola Lambert-John who claimed second place in her age group with a new age group record. Neil Button and Elly Young also gained second places in their respective age groups with Elly improving her age group record from race 2. Yet again the great support from Jaguars around the course, a well-organised event and good marshalling led to an enjoyable race and overall a great series of races.

On Sunday 19 May, I took part in the Great Manchester Run 10km. I entered this race two years ago and wanted to take part again. I was in the orange start and the organisation was fantastic. Prior to the start, I was interviewed by the BBC who asked me various questions as to why I was there and if I was running for a charity etc. As I had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, I mentioned that I had the all clear in the February and I wanted to run for all those fighting this terrible disease. I never thought it would be shown on the television on the highlights that evening. We set off in waves and this race is the largest 10km in Europe and there were over 30,000 runners competing in the half marathon, junior races and 10km race that day. It is a great course, going down Deansgate in the centre of Manchester, Old Trafford (passing the football club), and Bridgewater Way and Chester Road. The entertainment was fantastic and really kept me going and had music zones, bands, choirs, musicians etc. all the way round. Besides the allocated water stops, there were two shower mists which you ran though, which was great!. The supporters were fabulous – cheering me on and shouting my name at every corner and along every road. Although I did not achieve a PB, I did knock nearly 2 minutes off from when I did the race 2 years ago, so I was well pleased. It is a really enjoyable race and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have even entered to compete

DEREHAM 10 MILE 12/05/2019

A good contingent of orange was present at this Sportlink Grand Prix/County Championship event. The weather was beautiful and the venue, Neatherd High School, really ideal (with plenty of ladies’ toilets!). We also had a chance to experience the Total Race Timing numbers issue system – which looks as though it is going to save a lot of hassle for us, too. Well over 500 runners started, and we ploughed along the old A47 for almost three miles before turning off for the loop round Elsing. It was great to see Dee and Steve at the start (and later on), and Paul Emery and Emma Jordan also cycled over to cheer us on. It was so good to see them there and the support was really appreciated. The A47 stretch back to the finish seemed VERY long, but many people were rewarded with PBs, so most were happy. Fortunately it wasn’t as hot as a couple of years ago, but one or two found the end very hard going. It was good to spend some time with Emma Blake, who also had a very good race, and there was a nice atmosphere at the awards presentation. In summary, not my favourite route, and I would prefer an earlier start than 10:30 a.m. for a long race, but it went like clockwork and the organisers were all very friendly and helpful.’

GY Race 2 In the second race of the series, 30 Jags took part in conditions which were less windy than in race 1, but a bit wet underfoot due to the earlier rainfall during the day resulting in a couple of big puddles/waterjumps to negotiate on the way round! Once again there was tremendous Jaguars support around the course, helping nine Jags to achieve PBs with Shane Bidle, Hattie Swain, Julian and Julie Jardine all bettering their PBs from Race 1 and Radley Fenn, Karen Evans, Caroline Britton, Megan Swain and Rebecca Wicks all achieving best times. There were awards for Jaguars with Nick Eley claiming first in his age group and Elly Young second in another new age group record, while the Senior Men’s Team of Andy Mulligan, Daniel Smith and Jack Stuttle were victorious with first place in their category.
