The biggest turn-out of Ryston Runners at the weekend was at the Marham 10k where competitors saw a return to the wet conditions they had been bemoaning only a few weeks ago at GEAR.

Overall race winner was recent Ryston recruit Warren Armstrong, who timed in on 35.17. Lorena Latisaite took the women’s race with 43.33.

With over a third of the field comprised of Ryston Runners it is not surprising that they largely cleaned up in the trophy stakes, with many individual and team awards.

A couple of days earlier, Danny Rock got the weekend’s road action off to a start with a time of 27.55 to place fifth in the Great Bentley five-mile race on Friday evening.

This secured him a Silver Hare award ahead of the Hancock Half Hour club handicap challenge race due to take place yesterday.

Over the same distance, but on grass trails, riverbank and bridleway, Matt Pyatt was third in the March Spud Run on Sunday, with a time of 28.05.

Rock’s Sunday outing was to Newmarket, where he also placed third over a hilly 10k course in 36.03.

Starting earlier than his clubmates, Eamonn McCusker (60) was pleased with conditions at the Potteries Marathon.

McCusker ran in 3.43.59, a good return to form and a result that should secure him a good-for-age place in the 2017 London Marathon.
