The Saturday morning 5k park runs, a free to enter event held weekly at several locations throughout the UK, are a popular attraction for both club and non-club runners.
The Gorleston Cliffs park run, first held in April 2009, had four members of Waveney Valley Athletic Club taking part in the most recent race. From an entry of 105 runners, new club member Richard Aukland finished 29th in a time of 23:22. Donna Boggis, in her first race at the 5k distance, was placed 69th in 27:56 with David Pimlott just one second behind in 27:57 for 70th. Tracy Mayne ran a p.b. time of 31:47 finishing in 92nd.
Two club members chose the more recently established Fritton Lake 5k park run. Alan Fairs was 7th in 21:28 and Warren Hytch clocked a time of 26:02, nearly three minutes faster than he ran over the same course the previous week.
