Run that suits just everyone

RUNNING: Gorleston Cliffs parkrun number 116 on Saturday saw another 100-plus turnout, and another fine day for running attracted healthy competition as well as non-competitive togetherness amongst the local family of parkrunners.

Young Dominic Oliver of GYDAC triumphed for the third time in 18.33, despite not always having it his own way. Second was David Hughes in 18.50 and third Marc Evans in 18.57.

In the ladies’ race, Victoria Swanston of Lowestoft RR won in an excellent time of 22.32 with Claire Ramsbottom of Norwich RR second in 24.16 and Penny Studley of GYDAC third in 24.29.

Warm wishes go to Spiderman and Ironman for their Everyman Cancer fund-raising 10k run this weekend. Their parkrun training is bound to pay-off.
