Runners Triumph with Personal Bests

Thetford runners have been out in force again, firstly Andrew Smith of Thetford Athletics Club completed the Chester Half Marathon and achieved a pb taking over 3mins from his previous best. This was Andrew’s second race in a TAC vest.

Father and son Brian and Karl Wright took part in the Colchester Paras 10 at the weekend – a very hot 10 mile trail run including a river crossing and very deep boggy marshland. Karl finished in 1:15:56 (pb) and Brian in 1:31:21

Jason Elrick raced the Swaffham 10k in very warm conditions and achieved a very impressive time of 41:41 and finishing 29th out of 243.
