Buller Gorge Half Marathon

Continuing his Tour Down Under, Colin Robilliard took part in the Buller Gorge Half Marathon on the 9th February. Billed as New Zealand’s most scenic race it attracted a field of 880 runners. Colin, despite some injury concerns finished 26th overall in a time of 1.27.01 which was good enough for first place in his age category. He is now planning to use the rest of his time in the antipodes to rest and recover. Hopefully on his return he can bring back some sunshine.

Ashford 10k

The recent inclement weather couldn’t prevent the 25th instalment of the Ashford and District Lions 10k from going ahead. However, with 2 feet of water submerging part of the Kent countryside course the day before race day, a last minute revision, making it more undulating, was needed. This, however, didn’t stop Sze-Ming Cheung clocking another PB in a chip time of 39:11, coming in 7th in his age category and 45th overall out of finishing field of 624.

King and Queen of the Withers

Colin Robilliard, by virtue of the fact that you can’t get any further away wins this years prize for furthest race from home. On the 4th January he took part in the King and Queen of the Withers 10k trail race, Blenheim, New Zealand. He finished in a time of 51’45, which he describes as his slowest 10k ever. He can be excused this time however as the race took in a steep climb to 1100 feet. Despite the time it took, Colin still managed an excellent 16th place.

Wymondham New Years Day 10k

Wymondham AC rather kindly scheduled a late start for their New Years Day race and 18 Jaguars took the opportunity to blow away the cobwebs for a windy morning run. Sze-Ming Cheung was the only Jaguar to go under 40 minutes with an excellent chip time of 39.37.  Carrying on where she left off last year Ellie Bye was 1st lady Jaguar to finish and 3rd club member overall. Six other Jags ran personal bests with 3 more running the distance for the first time. Ever the gent, Zep Ciarla accompanied wife Trudi round the course, with any luck she will catch the running bug and we will soon be welcoming another new member.

Beccles Turkey Trot

The temptation of a year ending race was too much for 18 Jaguars who crossed the border to Beccles for 10 rolling miles. The mild weather produced some excellent results with Steve Cannell and Lawrence Wade both running under an hour. Steve came in 7th overall in his first race at the distance for the club whilst Lawrence ran a personal best. A further 5 Jags also ran personal bests and another 9 raced the distance for the first time. Ellie Bye came in as 4th Jaguar overall in 1.09.32 taking minutes off her previous best and edging ever closer to the club record.

Medals were only given for the first 100 finishers however this was made up for by the handing out of a Christmas pudding to everyone who crossed the line. This year has produced some exceptional results for the club and now is the time to relax for a few days and recharge the batteries for an even better 2014.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

City of Norwich Half Marathon 2013

We had another great turnout of 23 orange vests at the City of Norwich Half Marathon with some excellent results. First home for the Jags in 6th position overall was Steve Cannell who, running his first ever half marathon, smashed the club record in a diamond standard time of 1.16.06. Richard Bateson couldn’t quite hang on to Steve and finished 10th also breaking the club record in a time of 1.17.46. Steve and Richard were not the only ones in the  prize list as Colin Robillard was, once again, first in the 60+ age group in a platinum time of 1.26.22. Roy Owen was 3rd in the 65+ age group and also took the age club record running 1.51.41. Not to be outdone by the boys Ellie Bye showed some true grit down the home straight to claim a new club record by a massive 1 second but did take an impressive 6 minutes off her previous time running 1.34.51. There were many more achievements on the day with Alan Bushell, Paul Allen, Rebecca Widdows, Paul Gerber, Jackie Bye,  Adelle Bushell, and Claire Owen all running pb’s. The first timers for the club were Jon Foot, James Lambert, Martin Colley,  Anthony Norris and Mary Owen. We might be a small club but we are often up there battling it out with the best so roll on the Turkey Trot 10 miler and let’s have another big turn and possibly more prizes and pb’s.
