Crush was just four seconds outside of his personal best as he held off the challenge of Ironman triathlete Joe Skipper, who came second in 15:44. Ipswich Jaffa's Rob Chenery was third in 15:47.

North Norfolk Harriers' Hattie Reynolds produced a blistering run to win the overall women's race in 17:50 - a new personal best for the youngster.

Joseph Smith (Bungay Black Dog RC) was first junior in 16:15 with Danny Adams (CoNAC) second in 16:29. William Browne (CoNAC) was third in 16:53.

Holly Bunn (CoNAC) won the junior female category in 19:16 with Amelia Webber (Beccles & Bungay Harriers) second in 19:30. Grace Buchanan (North Norfolk Harriers AC) was third in 19:57.

The event, organised by Norwich Road Runners, included a new faster finish, meaning runners no longer had to turn into the school at the last minute and made for some great sprinting on the night.

A total of 759 runners took part and many will be back for the second race in just under four weeks' time on Wednesday, June 12, in which only a few places remain (sign up here).

The third race is on Wednesday, July 3.
