Moore is Waveney’s fastest finisher in second race of the promenade series

The Second race in the Great Yarmouth promenade five mile series took place with three members of Waveney Valley Athletic club entered.

This race formed part of the Runner Centre Grand prix series so the standard was very high and the number of entries in excess of 200 runners was the highest in this series for many years.

As in race one, Waveney’s Richard Moore was again amongst the prize winners, being awarded third place trophy in the veteran 40+ category. He finished in 16th position overall in a time of 28:59.

The brisk seafront breeze affected many of the runners time, including those of Bill Kingaby and Alan Fairs who were around half a minute down on their race one performances, though they finished comfortably in the top half of the field in 62nd (33:35) and 75th (34:35) respectively.

Usual suspects for third race of promenade series

Waveney Valley Athletic Club members Richard Moore, Bill Kingaby and Alan Fairs competed in the third and final race in the Great Yarmouth Road Runners 5 mile series.

There was another very high entry for an evening road race with more than 200 runners. The race was followed by the presentation of individual, team and series prizes.

For Moore, the series has proved successful rounding off events with second in the Veteran 40+ age category to add to a first and third in the first two races. He was also overall prize winner for the series in his age group.

Fairs twice improved his best time during the three races and looks set for a pleasing summer season and Kingaby, though suffering a stitch in the final race which cost him a few places, was still reasonably placed throughout the series in his age category.

Results: Richard Moore 14th (29:08) Alan Fairs 70th (34.02) Bill Kingaby 81st (34:30)
