Elsewhere Carol and Rosie Atkins, Mike Grealy, Dan Smith, Andy Wilmot and Keith Thorogood all completed the 26.5 mile Flower Of Suffolk Trail Marathon. This picturesque popular event on the Suffolk coast passes the villages of Walbeswick, Dunwich, Minismere and Sizewell and also offers a 18 mile walk which Club members Nigel Smith, Val Kerrison and Wendy Carter all completed.

Mike Grealy enjoyed the course so much that he added on a few extra miles meaning he actually ran nearer to 30 miles and still managed to be the first Halstead runner home.
