You should all be really proud of yourselves: Tom Jordan ran a 4 min gold standard and club age best pb time of 2.12.12. His sprint finish was quite impressive. You’re…

Great Welsh Marathon – March 2024

At the Great Welsh marathon on Sunday 17th March Leanne Botwright finished in 4.24.32. We’re sure she will be really pleased with this result considering her disrupted training plan. Leanne says it was an out and back course. Ok on the way out but a head wind on the way back! Well done Leanne.  

Blickling Half Marathon – March 2024

At the Blickling Half Marathon on Sunday 17th Henry Gurney ran 1.25.34, Joanne Watkins 1.33.51 (1st lady), Steph Laurence 1.36.31 (3rd lady) and Anna Holmes Gurney 1.47.12. As the course is mainly off road it doesn’t hold a UKA licence so the results will not be included on Power of 10 or our club records. Well done all.

Vale of York 5m – March 2024

In the Vale of York 5m race Eleanor Chapman had a cracking run to finish 4th senior lady in a silver standard time of 34.44. This was Eleanor’s first 5m for BVH. Within the same race she ran a sub 21.00 5k too! Well done EC.

English Schools Cross Country – March 2024

Billy Eccles, running against the best in the country, had a great run on what was an extremely muddy Pontefract race course. Like Michael, Billy is not a fan of the mud and runs his best on the roads so his 35th place out of over 350 runners and 2nd scorer for Norfolk was an excellent result. Well done Billy.

We had two members running in the Mike Groves 10k race on Sunday 10th March: Stephen Lee, running in the BVH vest for the first time, had, not only, the rain to contend with but the usual strong windy conditions.  Stephen, who is on his way back from injury, finished in a gold standard 42.12. This was over 2 minutes…

Inter Counties X/C – March 2024

Luckily the running conditions for the Inter Counties X/C on Saturday 9 March in Nottingham were good, but the course was a tough hilly one!  We had three members taking part: Belle Watkins, running in the Norfolk vest for the first time, was worried she would be last across the line but as usual she dug deep to finish as…

Cambridge Half Marathon – March 2024

We had two members racing the Cambridge Half Marathon on 3rd March: Amy Balaam, due to various reasons, hasn’t been able to commit to training as much as she would have liked so she should be really pleased with her time of 1.42.48. Beth King also continues to improve, running a silver standard 1.50.39. This was her first Half Marathon…
