Great Yarmouth 5 Miles Series Race 1

Waveney Valley Athletics Club had an impressive entry of just under a dozen runners for the first in Great Yarmouth Road Runners series of three races covering a distance of 5 miles.

Three new members joined established Waveney Valley athletes for this popular annual spring event covering two laps of Great Yarmouth’s seafront and promenade.

Tim Earl, competing again just a week and a half after setting a personal best at the Bungay Marathon, maintained his recent excellent form, recording another p.b. Alan Fairs also set a new best time for the distance. Teenager Chris Booth has been running for just a few weeks and posted a very fast time for his first race whilst fellow new members Lauren Dixon and Jane Ward finished comfortably inside the one hour mark.
