Worstead 5 – 29/07/2022
On a pleasantly cool but sunny evening the Worstead 5 mile was back on after a break of 2 years and a total of 35 Jags had turned out to run. A special mention should also though be given to the wonderful Jags supporters that were dotted around the course and the finish and really helped motivate the runners.
There was some amazing running, including of course Jack Stuttle and Ellie Gaskins setting new club male and female records for the distance with times of 27.03 and 32.05 respectively. In addition Ellie won the Senior Women’s prize for being first in her age category. Jack was 10th overall in a field of 458 runners. Second in for the men was Daniel Smith with a time of 28.52 followed by Stephen Pointer with 31.03. For the women there were also some incredible times with Sandra Roberts coming in at 36.40 followed by Vicky Tovell at 37.46.
Strong running and times were a feature throughout the club with everyone coming in within an hour. The wooden medals were a lovely feature as was the choice of snacks at the finish line so well done on the organising NNBR. It was also lovely to be able to stay around and enjoy the festival atmosphere and beverages afterwards.
