24 of The Newmarket Joggers joined the 350 taking part in The Abington 10K just outside Cambridge at the weekend. Jogger Neil Pollard collected the 2nd place medal with his time of just 35.16. Not far behind were club members, Mark Hayward (37.49), Jason Beeton (41.27), Grainne Brennan (41.52), Eleanor Bithell(50.35), and several others, who all came in well under the hour. A good turnout from the members of the beginners group of 2017, saw the club supported with great runs from Belinda Schofield (54.44), Jan Holmes (55.13) Rachel Allen (1.20.34) and Sonia Orriss (1.25.13). Many of the other members wore the Joggers vest to cross the finish line, including those winning the “best in age” categories. Nicky Chapman won the women’s under 35 with her finishing time of 42.47. Neville Clarke won male 60 with 43.16 and Malcolm Osborne male 70 in 57.05.
Meanwhile further a field in London, Christine Conway-Jarret completed her first ever 15 mile run. A distance she thought would never be possible. Running to raise money for charity, Christine completed the Urban Rush run, from The Olympic Park in Stratford to Putney Bridge in 3hours 12mins.
