Worstead 5 Mile Race – 24 July 2015

Well it started to rain before lunch and didn’t stop all day!  Therefore the annual 5 mile race which takes place on the evening just before the Worstead Festival weekend, was a little wet underfoot (to say the least!).

Despite this, there was a good turnout of 19 Jags, the weather never seems to worry us!  Mel turned out to cheer us on at about half way and Alan and June found a good car parking space on route to wave and still shelter from the rain!!

Amazing what rain can do to get us all round a bit quicker, several PBs were obtained and fantastic running and cheering by all.  First time recorded for the club at this distance for several runners, these included – Paul Allen, David Platten, Josh Neale , Emma Jordan, Sue Allen, Carolyn Gerber and Hilda Mears.

PBs were obtained by Andy Mulligan, Jeremy Lawrence, Owie Barber, Paul Gerber, Rosemary Jackson, Jackie Gooch and Clare Hicks.

The hardcore few stayed afterwards for a glass of cider or two and enjoyed the band in the shelter of the tent!!! A big well done to everyone who turned out to represent Coltishall Jaguars!! (apologies to those who aren’t in the photos!!)
