On Sunday, just four FRC members were among the 3,161 finishers in the inaugural Run Norwich 10K but two scooped first in age category prizes. The somewhat tortuous route around Norwich city centre saw runners climb the hill to the cathedral and castle three times.
Rod Sinnott was first home in 215th place in 42:18; Maire Irlam 300th but 1st LV50; Claudia Milburn 416th in 45;38 and Ian Milburn 518th but 1st MV70 in 47:11.
