WYMONDHAM 20 MILES 25/03/2018
After several weeks of wintry weather, perfect running conditions arrived in time for this race. There were 17 Jags taking part, some as part of their spring marathon training and some just for fun! It was also a grand prix event, attracting 371 runners in total, some wearing fancy dress!
The route comprised of 2 laps around a rural, gently undulating course out to the village of Deopham with a rather naughty uphill on mile 19 back into Wymondham. It was well-marshalled with regular water stops and jelly beans for those in need of a sugar boost. There were also several Jags out on the course supporting their fellow runners, which was greatly appreciated.
The Jags results were terrific, with 4 members achieving gold standards, Tony Alborough and Emma Blake both setting new age group records. There were personal best times for Emma Blake and Emma Jordan and also Dee Neal, finishing 4th in her age group despite not eating a proper breakfast! It was a shame that the host club had run out of cake by the time we had all finished!
|Tony Alborough||2.21.41||FT New Age Group Record||GOLD|
