Lavenham Old Railway Trail 10K, Suffolk, Sunday 30th January: Clive Purbrook (1:01:27, 61st of 174 overall) enjoyed this scenic trail run along a stretch of disused railway, also passing through the picturesque town of Lavenham in Suffolk. The distance worked out at about 10.8km on his watch, which may explain his longer than expected time.
