Sutton spearheads Yarmouth Road Runners in Gorleston Park Run challenge

On a lovely morning at the Park Run there were 13 Yarmouth Road Runners in another good field of 110.

Some great performances saw two club and Park Run PBs and another seven season’s-best performances. Icing on the cake was a GYRR winner and another in the top 10.

Results: 1 Matthew Sutton 18:52, 8 Mark Mountain 20:25, 16 Stephen Leeves 21:20, 24 Michael Dale 23:04 (Club and Park Run PB), 37 Pauline Richardson 24:29, 52 Paul Westgate 26:09, 53 Mark Peach 26:10, 54 Nicola Baker 26:21, 55 Lorrain Dawson 26:22, 56 Dave Girling 26:22, 57 Paul Spandler 26:22, 69 John Bound 28:07 (Club and Park Run PB), 100 Carole Spong 34:51.

A mention goes to Saskia Spong in 99th place with a time of 34:49 running with grandma.

The amount of miles put into training is often discussed at training nights.

With some of the membership using the website fetcheveryone, the challengers can view how their miles are comparing with the others. Out front by some way is Neil Sibley with 379 miles since the start of the year. Second is Andy Peck on 328.

Matthew Sutton is on 314 miles but that will be increased as soon as he can get online.
