Waveney Valley AC members Matt Jeffries and Sam Lines competed for Suffolk on Sunday in the Brighton 10k.

The event was the Inter-Counties Championships and just under 2,000 athletes took part.

Against many of the nation’s top class club runners, Matt finished a highly respectable 23rd in a personal best time of 32.20. Sam was placed 117th, and 12th lady, in a time of 37.00, just two seconds outside her best time.

Sam was pleased with her performance as an injury had affected her training in recent months.

Twenty-six members took part in the Adnams Southwold 10k. Lee Cook crossed the finish line in a splendid second place out of 753 competitors in 34.55. Steve Carruthers was seventh in a personal best 37.41 with Tim Moore 15th in 38.50, a PB also.

Dominic Oliver from City of Norwich AC came home first in a speedy 34:48.
