Callum is fourth athlete home at Humpty Dumpty event

Have your say

Eight Ryston Runners were at the Humpty Dumpty 10K at Freethorpe, where it rained hard for the second successive year.

In fourth overall and first Ryston athlete home was Callum Stanforth in 35.36 (first SM ), a whisker ahead of Danny Rock in 35:40 (2SM).

Lorena Latisaite took 3rd SW place (76th overall) in 44:09.

Pete Johnson, who was running uncompetitively to help a friend round the course, still managed to place third in the M60 category (96th) overall, in 44.52.

Then came Keith Morris (246th/52.30) and Martin Blackburn (267th/53.19) before Jane Ashby, running 53.42, took first W65 spot, and Sarah Partridge completed the line-up with 56.54.

There were 427 finishers.

Pauline Drewery finished ninth woman overall and second in her age group in the Brading 10K on the Isle of Wight.

Pete Duhig was ninth M65 in the Santa Pola Internacional 10k in just over 51 minutes, having been on target for a podium place until hit by a hamstring injury at halfway.

Cath Duhig walked the course in 65.10 to place just outside the trophies, fourth W60.

Finally, over a busy and varied weekend, more than 30 Ryston Runners supported their clubmate Mick Ennis by taking part in or helping with the Beat the Tide 10k running event at Hunstanton in aid of the Friends of the Stroke Association

A two-lap 5k course with a headwind going out and a lovely one behind on the way back made for a very enjoyable, and worthwhile, day.
