Fenland runners out in force at popular King’s Lynn GEAR race
Fenland Running Club were out in force at the ASDA Foundation Great East Anglia Run (GEAR) 10K in King’s Lynn on Sunday with 34 runners taking part among the 2,100 finishers in the sell-out event.
For some it was a ‘short race’ after their weeks of marathon training, some chasing PBs and, for others, the longest race ever since joining the club.
Martin Jennings and Ryan Jones both went sub 40-minutes after last week’s London Marathon and Claudia Milburn was the first FRC lady home.
Daniel Spiller had a great first-ever 10K with 43:02 and Claudia Milburn, Hannah Ryan, Carol Bowett, Gilly Anderson and Jane Clarke all took PBs.
Once again, Ian Milburn and Jane Greenwood both excelled for the club by taking first place in their MV70 and FV60 age groups.
