Breckland is a pleasant low key event on quiet roads surrounded by forest. It is a fast course and although the first 2K is mostly uphill, the final 2K is invitingly downhill.

With conditions this year were fairly warm with some headwind in the exposed section of the race around 6K, Gordon Irvine contended for 3rd place throughout but finished 8 seconds behind in a creditable 4th. Peter Harris was relieved to be back into the groove after injury, improving his ER MV65 10K record by 28 seconds and securing 1st MV65. Stuart Aldridge was pleased with his best 10K for at least 10 years and his first for Ely Runners, soon after a promising first 5K at Impington the previous Thursday. Paul Needham made a very welcome return after a very long layoff and only just missed out on sub 50 minutes.

Results:
1st – Robert Chenery 34:01,
4th – Gordon Irvine 35:58,
7th – Alice Heather-Hayes 38:04 (1st lady),
72nd – Peter Harris 45:29 (1st MV65, ER MV65 record),
89th – Stuart Aldridge 47:16 (first ER 10K, PB),
132nd – Paul Needham 50:17
