Great Yarmouth 5 mile series race 3 – 18/05/2022
Fifteen Jags turned out to race the final 5 mile race in this years series, and after a very hot day the weather was surprisingly cool with a sea breeze.
After a 2 year break due to the coronavirus, Great Yarmouth Road Runners had changed the course, it was now 3 laps around the sea front instead of 2, which I felt was better as we got to see all the Jags supporters more often as we ran round, thank you to all those who made the trip over to Yarmouth to cheer us on! It was a flat course as promised but with one little obstacle where you had to run down a slope under the pier and back up the other side, without hitting your head if you were tall!
We had some great results from our runners, with several PBs and the brilliant Jack Stuttle winning his age group with an amazing time of 27:38.
The medals interlocked to form a seaside beach scene, although I’d only got the 1st and 3rd.
Well done to all those that did all 3 races and I hope, like me, you managed to get some sneaky chips in before heading off for home!
