Wymondham 10K – 1 January 2016


The first race of 2016 welcomed no fewer than 12 Jolly Jags at the Wymondham 10k.

This was Paul Emery’s debut in Jag’s colours and how well he ran in the cold and icy conditions considering he was nursing a calf injury.

Three brave Jag spectators cheered on our intrepid runners as they raced up the last hill in the final kilometre of the race. For James Fuller his relaxed, yet determined style made it look as if he had just begun the race instead of being within yards of the finish line. A personal best was definitely on his mind and he succeeded too.

Rod Bye was our first runner home sporting a new secret “go fast” garment, well two to be precise.

Jackie Bye ran a superb time of 50.55. Such good preparation for her marathon in three weeks.

Adele was particularly pleased as she was only about 15 seconds away from a PB. Special mention must go to Tom Johnson who produced a very brave performance as he was feeling poorly. He looked very unwell as he struggled up the hill and was clearly suffering but still ran to the end. Well done Tom. We hope you are feeling better now.
