It was the second annual High Easter 10k today. The race starts and finishes in this pretty rural village on a fast and flat course. All proceeds from the race go towards the village’s Grade 1, 11th Century Church.
Tom Porter was the only male representative from the club finishing in 40.06. Caroliena Cameron was first for the ladies in 47.07. Leigh-Anne Porter, running her first 10k, set an impressive marker of 49.41. Nicole Smith ran a personal best to finish in 50.18. Congratulations to Lorraine Garnham who claimed FV55 age category honours in a time of 52.03.
Sarah Frost and Mel Candler competed in the Eton Tri at Dorney Lake, one of the venues for the 2012 Olympic Games. The event consisted of a 750m open water swim in the rowing lake before taking to a 4 lap bike course covering 21.2k and then the final 5k run following an out and back course. This was Sarah’s first triathlon and she finished in a total time of 1 hour 51 minutes. Mel, racing in a different wave, finished in 1 hour 22 minutes, 8th lady overall and 2nd in her age category.
Ian Chandler ran the Bury to Clare Challenge, an off road race through the undulating countryside of West Suffolk. The course was just shy of 19 miles and Chandler finished in 2 hours 55 minutes.
