On a bright sunny morning on Sunday 24th September 2017, at the third race of the Coltishall Jaguars 10km series for 2017, conditions appeared to be perfect until you stepped out on the airfield to find a stiff breeze. 14 road runners arrived in anticipation setting some good times on a flat course. 307 Runners turned up ranging from all ages and abilities from first timers to seasoned runners.
Marc Evans ran a superb race picking up 3rd male award and finishing 4th overall; a sensational run.
Matt Buckoke, James Carass, Steven Baker, Mark Mountain and Mark Stone all finished inside the top 50 with Matt, Steven and Mark Mountain surprised and delighted to win the Veteran Team award.
Two newer male members Paul Reeve and Andrew Thomas (debut 10k) were both pleased with their efforts whilst sandwiched in between was Toni George, 1st lady home for GYRR and picking up a fantastic personal best too!
Rob Bailey was next home followed by Gemma Aylen, thrilled by making her GYRR debut whilst Leigh Taylor took almost 3 minutes off his previous 10k to record a fabulous personal best. Pandora Buck and Jenna Kemp finished to the cheers and support from fellow GYRR runners.
