A large contingent of Fenland Running Club members ran the traditional Autumn curtain raiser last Sunday at the Ryston Runners Wissey Half Marathon.
On a testing uphill course in warm, windy conditions, with many using the race as preparation for the Round Norfolk Relay in two weeks, great times were achieved by all.
First home were Paul Arnold and Richard Hammond, who ran a personal best by a minute, clocking the same time in 32nd and 33rd place.
Special mention must go to Colin Ferguson who finished fourth in the V60 category, virtually matching his time from a decade ago; and Tracy Veenendaal and Julie Garner who smashed their PB’s by 10 and 8 minutes.
Full results: Paul Arnold 32nd 1.28.33; Richard Hammond 33rd 1.28.33; Colin Ferguson 75th 1.37.31; Paul Wiegand 78th 1.37.40; Richard Betts 96th 1.39.32; Andre Pittock 115th 1.43.24; Justin Showell 128th 1.45.00; Sarah Gauvin 129th 1.45.29; Dave Brammer 137th 1.47.07; Paul Denwood 161st 1.51.37; Tracy Veenendaal 213th 2.01.02; Julie Garner 223rd 2.03.57.
