The Stockport Harriers AC athlete was just 10 seconds outside Paul Evans’ course record, set in 2000, as he came home in 14:21.

Shaftesbury Barnet’s Kieran Clements and Newham & Essex Beagles AC’s John Beattie were less than 10 seconds behind between them, with Clements clocking 14:26 for second and Beattie’s 14:30 enough for third place.

CONAC member and Commonwealth games finalist, Iona Lake, won the women’s event in 16:33 ahead of Ipswich Jaffa’s Helen Davies, who came home in 16:41. Sarah Astin (CONAC) was third in 16:47.

The race, which started at Whitefriars this year, immediately precedes the Lord Mayor’s procession through Norwich city centre and provides an opportunity to race on a two-lap traffic free course.
