Two club members took part in an energy sapping Bungay Half Marathon last Sunday, an event which reached its maximum entry limit of 600 a few days before the race.
On the hilly first few miles, heading towards Beccles, runners had to contend with a cold north wind in their faces, then were greeted by hail showers on the return section to Bungay.
Bill Kingaby finished 72nd in a time of 1-37:25 and once again just one place outside the prizes with second in his age group. David Pimlott was placed 445th in a time of 2-23:50 and is looking forward to a new season of training now his committee workload has been relaxed. Also on Sunday Tim Earl competed in the 8.9 mile Aylsham to Wroxham ‘Chase The Train’ event and finished sixth in 56:21.
The club has three members running in the London Marathon this Sunday, Tim Earl, Alan Fairs and Kevin Booth. Alan, running in his first marathon, is raising money for Cancer Research and Greyhoundhomer Suffolk whilst Kevin, also in his debut marathon, is running for Cancer Research.
