Old Buckenham 10K – 22 April 2018
On a day were the majority of focus was elsewhere amongst the running community it was both rewarding and satisfying to support this local event organised by the Old Buckenham 2000 Trust with all profits going towards the roof re-thatching fund for All Saints Church in the village.
Simon Bekker, Lorrain Dawson, Eddie Greenland, Jane Thomas and Fiona Williams were the five representatives from GYRR that took their place on the start line for what was to be a tough effort for all the participants in the increasing heat. Maybe not ideal but the sun shining definitely brought out the best in the beautiful area of countryside that formed the route of the course.
Although incidental to the main objective of the day the team did bring back some spoils from the event with both Simon and Lorrain collecting wins in their respective age categories and do you know what, there was a lovely selection of post-race cakes to dive into.
