Hadleigh 5 and 10 mile
Lying beneath dark Autumnal Skies, Hadleigh in Suffolk was the setting for closely fought 5 and 10 Mile Road Races hosted by Hadleigh Hares Athletics Club. Simon Bekker and Vicky Quantrill were in action for Great Yarmouth Road Runners. In conditions best described as less than favourable, Simon ran to a new personal best of 34:27 in the 5 mile race, finishing 8th overall and earning himself a bonus award of first in age category. Vicky, possibly experiencing the worse of the increasingly blustery conditions out on the 10 mile course and running in her first competitive race for several weeks, ran a creditable 1:15:07 to finish 3rd in age category.
