Dominic Oliver, from the City of Norwich Athletics Club, who has won the race for the last three years, had to settle for second with Ipswich Jaffa Running Club’s Robert Chenery third. Colleen Nicole Mukuya from GYDAC and Dunerunner was the top woman with Cat Cummings, Wymondham Athletics Club, and Rosie Horsfield, Woodbridge Shufflers Running Club second and third.
