First Cross Country in Series of 3 completed - Excellent Race!

Although the day had started with rain, the sun broke out and it turned out to be a lovely Winter's morning for the first race.  We had an excellent turn out for the Sunday before Christmas with 75 runners.

This year's new course ran well with lots of positive feedback - even for the bale, ditch jump and the stream wade! Sean Atterwill from Dereham did a blazing time of 39.22 - over a minute ahead of the second runner, who was Iain Robertson, CONAC, with a time of 40.45.  Ben Moon, all the way from Cardiff came in third with a time of 41.10. The first lady was Rachel Gillings, Norwich Road Runner with a time of 48.12, shortly followed by Alice Ambrose, CONAC, with a time of 48.32, then Ellie Bye, Coltishall Jaguars, with a time of 50 minutes.

As usual with our Cross Country we then had the other prizes which included 10th man and woman, who were Jason Mountain, Wymondham, in 45.13 and Melaine Burch, Coltishall Jaguars, in 58.29.  20th man and woman, who were Eddie Carman, North Norfolk Beach Runners, in 49.33 and Patsy Bradley, Wymondham, in 1:01:27.  The first dog went to Bella - sorry no time! and the Muddiest was easily won by Baz Hipwell - we are still not sure how he got that muddy - I think they are still trying to clear the mud from the Race HQ!   Last but definitely not least, were Jenny Welsh and Sonya Wragg, who ran and finished together.
