It was a windy, cool and at times, sunny morning for the Wymondham 20 mile race. The usual two-lap course was filled with competitors mostly preparing for their upcoming spring marathon.
As usual, it was low-key, but efficiently run and enjoyable, race on quiet rural roads.
Five Ely runners attended, all with one eye on the London Marathon next month, with Karl and Miranda offering support, photography and live streaming!
Alan Darby ran a storming race to finish over 4 minutes ahead of the field, improving on last year’s second place. Kieren, Stephen, and Graham also declared themselves happy with their day’s work. Nigel had to deal with the increasingly warm weather yet managed to put on a fine sprint for the cameras at the finish.
Official Results: 1st Alan Darby 1:55:55; 10th Kieren Drane 2:09:32; 25th Stephen Howard 2:19:08(3rd MV50); 50th Graham Chapman 2:27:02 (1st MV60); 259th Nigel Reynolds 3:43:24. There were 284 finishers. First lady Geraldine Latham of March AC finished 37th overall in a time of 2:22:39.
