Eight North Norfolk Beach Runners were among 450 who ran the Worstead 5-mile on Friday 27th July. It would have been more but NNBR were marshalling the event and most of the membership were tabard-clad and scattered around the lanes of the hinterland.

In a temperature close to 30C, the race, which forms part of the Worstead Festival, was won by Dominic Blake of Reepham Runners in 27.06, with the first Beach Runner home, Chris Parker (SM), claiming 10th place in 29.46. The other Beach Runners were: Adam Smart (SM), 24th in 31.25; Dean Howard (MV45) 63rd, 33.52; Kathryn Head (FV35) 156th, 39,52; Phil King (MV60) 193rd, 41.18; Jen Armstrong, (FV40) 188th, 41.46; Kat Sanders, (FS) 230th, 44.26; and Club President, SuperSeventy and all round good egg, Noel Spruce (MV70+) 303rd , 50.42.
