BEACH RUNNERS NEAR AND FAR


This year’s Bakers and Larners Holt 10k organised by North Norfolk Beach Runners on Sunday 29th October attracted a full complement of 450 entries. The race, run in blustery and occasionally showery conditions, was won by Scott Walford (M45-49) of Bure Valley Harriers in a time of 34.34, with Christopher Hollinshead (M50-54) of Cannock and Stafford second in 35.25. Third was Beach Runner Neil Adams (M40-44) in 35.29. Charlotte Neale (FO) was the first female lady Beach Runner home and second female overall in 40.36.
Although about 100 NNBR members were involved in organising the race, 22 members ran in this, the last of the year’s Leathes Prior Grand Prix series. John Gay was second in the M55-59 with a time of 41.00, while Phil Hurr and Gary Linder were first and second in the M60-64 with times of 42.10 and 44.54 respectively. Sam Weller (M65-68 but soon to be a Super Seventy) was second in category in 45.03.
And talking about NNBR Super Seventies, club president Noel Spruce was 4th in the M70+ in 56.25 while septuagenarian Brenda Kinch was first home in the F65+ category in 1.02.35.
Meanwhile, on the previous weekend, two Beach Runners ran the Autumn 100, a 100 mile ultra in the Thames Valley. Out of 242 starters and 178 finishers, Vinnie Purdy finished in 22nd place with a time of 19.41.36 while Maria Greaves was 89th and 13th female in 23.46.30.

BEACH RUNNERS NEAR AND FAR

A magnificent seven North Norfolk Beach Runner veterans were among the 701 who ran the East Coast 10k at Yarmouth on Sunday, including three of the Super Seventies squad who, trained on sea air, all acquitted themselves well. Club president Noel Spruce (72) clocked 56.21 for 11th place in the M65 category and 376th overall; Mike Marshall (76) 1.02.01 for 18th in category and 500th overall; and Brenda Kinch (72) 1.06.32 for 14th in the F60 and 544th overall.

Well in front of them but younger were Neil Adams, (M vet 40) in 35.58 for 2nd in category and a stonking 4th overall; Sal Ryder (F50), in 54.18 for 9th in category and 326th overall; Phil Hurr, (M60), in 43.17 for 1st in category and 76th overall, and soon-to-be-Super Seventy Sam Weller,(M65) in 46.37 for 3rd in category and 143rd.

Further inland, in fact a lot further inland, was the Hungarian Girl Lash – the 11 lady Beach Runners who went to Budapest variously for the 10k,30k and full marathon races of the Budapest Marathon weekend. First lady Beach Runner among more than 4000 in the 10k was Annette Boreham in 1.01.18 for 1999th place and 1000th female , while the two Beach Runners among 1164 in the 30k were Fiona Morrison (64) in 3.35.41 for 387th female and 870th overall, and Shelley Burton in 3.46.29 for 432nd female and 1047th. In the marathon, Emily Haughan ran 3.51.29 for 197th female and 1474th out of 5413, and Sarah Mapes, 4.26.56 for 690th and 3380th.
