Worstead 5

On Friday, 28th July, North Norfolk Beach Runners again organised the Worstead 5-mile road race which, as usual, kicked off the Worstead Festival.
The undulating course, starting from the village square and run mostly over quiet lanes, was contested by 477 runners of all ages from 15 upwards, with the winner, Dominic Blake (no 48) of Reepham Runners coming home in 26.52.9, well ahead of second placed Gary Crush (unattached) who clocked 27.34.8.
With dozens of Beach Runners marshaling the course, running the registration tent, organising the start/finish and manning the water points, only a few ran the race. But Chris Parker was 7th in 29.33.5 and Rachel Robson came 8th in the FV50 category with a personal best of 41.21.1.
