Wroxham 5k Series Race 1

The orange army was out in full force on Wednesday,  both running and supporting, and there were some notable performances on a perfect evening for running. Of the 21 Jaguars who started 5 came away with personal bests and another 5 were running the distance for the first time. Wayne Gibbs came in first for the club in a personal best time of 18.53 (Gold standard), whilst further down the standings Richard Collyer and Ken Bowman battled out the last 400 metres for a very exciting finish. Richard just got in ahead of Ken taking a new 5k pb whilst Ken in finishing with a diamond standard 19.53 took first prize in his age category. Ellie Bye, Adele Bushell and Katherine Garwood all ran well to achieve their best ever times.

There was disappointment for Emily Hannant, Ellie Bye and Verity Holmes who were told on the night that they had won the senior ladies category, but were later informed that this was incorrect and they had in fact finished second. Nevertheless their collective performance was excellent and gives them some unfinished business for the next race which takes place on 20th June.
