Wymondham 20 – 12/09/2021

The Wymondham 20 mile race is the ideal preparation for upcoming marathons and the change in date to mid September for this year’s race was perfect for this year’s Autumn marathons. Starting in Wymondham market place, the first part of the course takes you round and out of the town centre before two laps of country lanes. Conditions were good, although the temperature started to pick up on the second lap which made the later miles a struggle. The route was very well marshalled and four water stations on each lap was ideal. Good support was provided out on the course and in the final uphill section along Lady’s Lane heading towards the finish line. Overall this is an excellent race organised by Wymondham AC and it is great to have the opportunity of running a 20 mile race locally. Six Jags took part in this race, all producing excellent runs in readiness for their Autumn marathons to come with Phil Henry and Emma Penfold completing their first 20 mile races for the club. I was also very pleased to achieve a club record for the 20 mile distance.
