2:48pm Thursday 20th September 2012 in Local Sport
TIPTREE Road Runners completed their most successful Round Norfolk Relay.
The club had a superb weekend at the Round Norfolk Relay, finishing 26th out of 58 teams, in the top half of the field for the first time and completing the course in the fastest time in four appearances.
The event, which follows the Norfolk boundary for 197 miles, is run in 17 stages of different lengths around the clock, with the early stages along the sandy, shingly North Norfolk Coastal Path.
In an event that attracted over 1,000 runners, Tiptree finished in a total time of 25 hours 39 minutes 11 seconds, 50 minutes inside their estimated time and more than two hours faster than the club’s inaugural run in 2009.
Although most runners covered different stages this year, three runners improved their times on the same stage compared to 2011 – Vicky Knight was 20 minutes faster, finishing as second lady, and Matt Davey and Simon Morgan were both around nine minutes faster.
Individual stages: Anthony Knight 54th, Vicky Knight 22nd and 2nd lady, Carolyn Bownes 48th , Gerry Dolden 54th, Matt Davey 21st, Paul Dellar 21st, Graeme Moon 28th, Mark Lawes 22nd, Peter Bouldstridge 43rd, Sean Ketteridge 6th, Simon Morgan 21st, James Haskey-Jones 14th, Andy Goodson 34th, Tara Harrison 34th, Phill Clarke 10th, Dawn Shilling 53rd, Craig Dawson 14th.
