Norwich Road Runners’ Stephen Gibbs wins Reepham Runners’ 10k cross country race
The wintry weather didn't prevent 22 hardy souls from taking part in Reepham Runners' 10k cross country race yesterday.
First home was Stephen Gibbs of Norwich Road Runners in a time of 41 minutes and 16 seconds. It completed 100 miles in a week for Stephen as he prepares for the London Marathon.
Second was Paul Martin, also of Norwich Road Runners, in 47:30 while Chris Squirrel was third in 50:00 after travelling all the way from Ipswich to compete.
First woman home was Kim Reader of Wymondham AC in 57:11. Second was Carol Betts from Norfolk Gazelles (59:18) and third Jude Durrant of Reepham Runners (1:01:33).
The two-lap course, which took in parts of Marriot's Way as well as local lanes and fields, had a good covering of fresh snow which competitors found a decent surface to run on.
