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.
