Isle of Axholme Half Marathon

Sze-Ming Cheung took  4 minutes of his personal best time at the Epworth Half Marathon which gave him a gold standard time of 1.27.22.

In Sze’s own words below:-

Situated in the picturesque small market town of Epworth North Lincolnshire, the single lap course is renowned for its flat profile throughout and long straight beside the River trent. Conditions were perfect: 12c, light crosswind breeze and overcast. Supplemented with friendly local support and a lively start/finish area, it made for fab race well worth the long journey with PB potential.

Round Norfolk Relay

RNR Report by Becky Durant

The weekend of 15th /16th September was a very exciting and busy one for the Jaguars. Whilst three brave members ran up and down hundreds of steps in Lowestoft, 17 others raced round Norfolk, covering exactly 197 miles between them.

It was very hot at 9:30 Saturday morning when, amidst shouts of excitement from fans and supporters, our first runner left Kings Lynn. It was still hot 24 hours and two minutes later when our last runner galloped across the finishing line to be greeted by a host of Golden Cheers from tired but excited Jaguar Supporters.

We did well. We came fourth in the Club Class Category and 11th overall out of 58 Teams. The success of the race was due largely to the diligent preparation of the runners and the precision of the helpers. If there was a prize for the slickest, neatest handovers we would surely have won.

A huge “thank you” to everyone who made this weekend such fun. Only another year before the next RNR.   RNR Website

Lowestoft Scores

3 brave members tackled the 409 steps of the notorious Lowestoft Scores Race and had great results coming away with a medley of prizes. Sue Allen won the ladies 50+ and Heather Hollister the ladies 60+.  Adele Bushell was running the race for the first time and thought it was fantastic (she must be mad) and together the three won the second ladies team prize.   Full Results    Prizes

Framlingham 10k

Jon Reader was the sole Jaguar to enter the Framlingham 10k and his recent training for the Round Norfolk Relay has obviously paid off as he ran one of his fastest times for years with an excellent  silver standard time of 42.21.
Full Results


Some excellent running in recent Parkruns has produced personal 5k best times for 3 Jaguars. On the 25th August Ana Ohde ran the Norwich event in a time of  23.19 (silver standard), and on the 1st of September also in Norwich, Ellie Bye (21.22 – silver) and Orla Cobb (29.17) also completed 5k p.b’s.

Wissey Half Marathon

Only 3 Jaguars travelled to Oxborough for the Wissey Half Marathon and whilst Sze-Ming Cheung was looking for a time around 1.30 he cannot have been disappointed with his finishing time of 1.31.41 giving him a silver standard in his first run at this distance for the club. Becky Durant turned in her usual excellent display with a gold standard time of 2.12.57 which also gave her a silver county medal. Richard Collyer, convinced the course was all uphill, also ran with a time of 1.47.34.

Norwich Park Run

While the majority of the 300+ park runners were struggling with the heat, on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far, no p.b’s were expected and yet two Jags surprised themselves by doing just that. Sze-Ming Cheung took almost 30 seconds off his time running 19.29 and Sarah Letzer took 48 seconds off her best time running 27.26.

Norwich Parkrun

In event number 101 held on the 4th August, Ben Letzer, who famously once told me that “He wouldn’t get out of bed for anything less than a marathon,” ran his first Parkrun and set an excellent 18.23 pb. On the same day Lawrence Wade was awarded the overall points prize for the 2011 / 2012 season. Lawrence has completed nearly 50 parkruns in total, winning one and consistently finishing near the front on almost every other occasion.

Worstead 5

On a lovely evening for running, over half the club turned out for the Worstead 5 mile road race. 51 orange vests were on show in what must be a club record for a single race. On a course which has most of the last mile uphill, ten runners finished with personal best times, most notably Lawrence Wade who finished first Jaguar and Ellie Bye who led the ladies home. Other notable runs came from Ken Bowman who on his 65th birthday ran a Platinum standard time and Deb Jones who in her first race at this distance for the club finished with a very good silver standard time. A further 12 Jaguars ran the distance for the first time. Hopefully the experience of running with so many fellow club members will have them all coming back for more.
