Grand turnout at Sandringham 10k




There was a packed starting line up of runners for the Run Sandringham 10k on Sunday.

Some 1,200 runners were recorded as finishers in the Total Race Timing results which measures their time with an electronic chip.

First male Reuben Andrews finished the race, that weaves through the Royal Estate, in 33 minutes 29.6 while his mum Jo Andrews was first female across the line in 39.00.6.

Jo crossed the line and said: "I am done in."

Both runners are members of Bungay Black Dog running club and wearing their red club vests.

With a massive number of entrants the event had a slightly delayed start time moving from 9.30am to 9.45am. The race is organised by Good Running Events.

Race director Aaron Murrell said: "It's been a really great day considering how many people have entered."

The first wave of runners, who had predicted times of under 59 minutes, stepped up to the starting line first with the second wave starting not long after.

The weather was misty and quite cool which is nice conditions for most runners. The popular warm up was led before the gun went with people getting in to the zone to the Eye of the Tiger.

The race had runners of all abilities and runners for Norfolk Vision supported each other in the race.

Vegan runners were out in force too along with familiar faces who attend parkrun in Hunstanton and Lynn.

Relieved finishers collected their goodie bags and a welcome delicious bar from Perkier Foods, plus a rather smart bandana and medal.
