Suffolk XC League – Framlingham – 1st Fixture
The Suffolk Cross Country Season has started and as ever it’s in at the deep end (literarily with mud, moats and bogs) with the fixture at Framlingham a 3 lap gruelling course around the moat of the famous castle and landmark. A welcome return to the team and form for Steve Edwards who finished 34th overall with Brian Munns following closely in 38th. Neville Clarke was next in 52nd followed by Jim Withers (68th), Neil Williamson (83rd) and Stuart Janes (128th). Only 2 ladies were brave enough to attempt the course and first home for the team galloping around the moat was Susannah Rush 98th overall with Jenny O’Callaghan in 133rd.
Over the last week there have been Marathon runners a plenty for the town with Vince Colby completing his 4th marathon of the year in Dublin in 3:23:19 a PB for the season previously he had ran: Amsterdam (3:44); Rome (4:05); London (3:41).
