As the summer racing programme is moving along, runners from Great Yarmouth & District Athletics Club are now looking to enter enough races that count towards the Runners Centre Grand Prix.

Five races out of 10 nominated have to be run during the year and last Thursday evening's Ryston Runners five miles race was one of the 10.

On a warm evening five GYDAC members ran the annual race, part of which was on the A10 road which was as usual quite busy.

Chris Gay finished in a great time of 36min 32sec in 75th place, despite setting off too quickly. In 102nd slot, John England was pleased with his run of 40:30.

Three ladies completed the race with Maureen England getting under 50 minutes in 143rd position, timed at 49:44. Following closely was Elaine Haggarty recording 52:17 and Pat Brightman, finishing strongly, in 149th place in 58:34.

Next race is the Worstead Festival five miles.
