Looking for something slightly different to road racing, four Fenland Running Club members – Mel Trayford, Andy Wicklen, Andre Pittock and Paskey Ruggiero – took to the Bury St Edmunds to Clare 18 mile trail run.

Organised by Positive Steps Fitness and Wellbeing in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, the 18-mile route covered the gently undulating countryside of West Suffolk, passing through the villages of Hawstead, Whepstead, Somerton and others, with several churches along the way. Although the route was marked, several ‘wrong turns’ resulted in more than 18 miles at the end, and all four completed the trail.

n Three Counties Running Club members travelled to deepest Lincolnshire to run the 5K in Boston.

Next weekend TCRC expect a lot more supporting March AC in their 5K.

Boston 5K: Tayo Willett 6th 20.23 (PB), Adam Chown 8th 20.35 (PB), Gary Bligh 10th 20.52 (PB + 1st 45-49), Colin Simpson 14th 22.30 (1st 60-64), Sue George 52nd 28.32 (1st 55-59).

A good turnout in Norfolk with some great runs, especially from Hannah Chown and Dave Lawrence who continue their rapid improvement in just a couple of months.

King’s Lynn 5K: Richard Hammond 5th 18.08, Dave Lawrence 61st 23.43 (PB), Linda Bowers 143rd 27.32, Harry Whitelam 145th 27.40 (PB), Steve Rhodes 171st 29.06, Sandra Rhodes 179th 29.24, Steve Whitelam 182nd 29.42, Hannah Chown 186th 29.59 (PB + 1st 20-24), Rachel Bingham 213th 31.54 (PB), Ben Hammond 218th 32.32, Justeene Hammond 219th 32.33.
