Great Yarmouth 5 Mile Series Race 2

Waveney Valley Athletic Club matched their entry of eleven runners in race one, when they competed at the second in the Great Yarmouth Road Runners 5 mile series. The race formed part of the Runners Centre Grand Prix series so a bumper entry of almost 250 runners lined up at the start on the seafront.

Waveney members with performances that stood out include David Pimlott who is benefiting from his recent marathon training. He was very pleased with his time of just under 43 minutes. Catherine Carfoot, accompanied throughout the race by Tim Earl, knocked almost two minutes off her time from race one while Bradwell based Dale De Pasquale shook off a hamstring problem to record a much improved time.

First to finish for Waveney Valley was Alan Fairs, in 59th place in a time of 33:43, just a fraction outside his personal best, with Bill Kingaby close behind in 64th. Chris Booth was next in 78th followed by his father Kevin in 101st. Paula Lambert, David Lewis and Ravenna Bartholomew all had satisfying runs in their first outing in this series this year.
