Top veteran Newmarket Jogger Paul Holley was in electric form in the St Neot’s Riverside Half Marathon on Sunday 18th November. He clocked 1:17:13 and finished 1st of 155 in his MV50 age group and 15th of 1,384 runners overall. He was over 2 minutes ahead of the second in his age group and earned an impressive age grade of 86.64%.

Please do let us know about your weekend races by emailing press@newmarketjoggers.co.uk, where Chris Aylmer is the current contact. The deadline for sending in press reports to the Newmarket Journal is Monday 9:30am, but missed runs can be added to this news page and to the current club standard tables.  Due to strictly limited space, the report sent to the Journal is briefer and will be further edited at the sports desk, so not all news will appear in print.
