A big turnout of Bungay Black Dog Running Club members and friends were at Gorleston Cliffs last weekend in a fitting tribute to ladies’ captain Alice Kirk’s 250th Saturday parkrun.

“A huge thankyou to the 46 Black Dogs plus friends and family who supported me on my 250th,” said Alice.

Elsewhere over the weekend, 11 Black Dogs raced at the Trowse 10k over a two lap route.

Their results were: 43 Byron McGill 40:56, 134 Simon Sparkes 46:18, 149 Richard Crossland 46:54, 259 Rachel Taylor 51:06, 306 Bobbie Sauerzapf 53:34, 320 Kirsty Schwier 54:14, 323 Amy Goodbold 54:16, 364 Lin Hunt 56:02, 376 Tanya Holloway 56:29, 379 Hannah Dean 56:31, 389 Sarah Sparkes 57:01, 415 Rachel Hirst 58:10, 566 Tracey Haylock 1-19:18.

Jody Donaldson and Andrew Manning were at Bishop Stortford to take part in the Stort 30 mile race. Andrew took third place in his age category for the UK Middle Distance Trail Championship completing the run in 3.58. Jody finished in 6.33.

Other Black Dog races included a 5k (which was actually measured 5.3k) around the centre of a very dark Bury as part of the Bury St Edmunds Festival of Sport. Results were: 19 Chris Chorley 23:05, 60 Sam Stedman-Jones 29:09, 64 Bobbie 29:22, 72 Malcolm Stedman-Jones 30:27.

And at the Blickling Hall National Trust 7km trail night run, Bobbie Sauerzapf and Chris Chorley ran with their dogs Meg and Rudi.

Meanwhile the club’s popular Groggy Doggy Boxing Day race on Outney Common is now open for entries.

Promoted each year as ‘the perfect antidote to Christmas’ the race starts at 10.30am and runs along a beautiful rural riverside course with plenty of mud.

A race for nine to 12 year-olds consists of a 1.5 mile lap while adults can choose between running a single or double 2.1 mile lap. Fancy dress and dogs are welcome as are donations to the event’s ‘Give a dog a dinner’ scheme whereby participants can donate animal food for the PACT Animal Sanctuary at Hingham. Entries can be made via the ‘our races’ tab on the BBDRC website (https://bungayblackdogrunningclub.co.uk).

Fundraising is also on the mind of Junior Black Dogs have been raising money for new training facilities to enable them to participate more competitively in inter-school, inter-club, regional and national events in which they are required to take part in throwing and jumping events. BBDRC hopes to be able to install a long jump and triple jump pit at its Bungay Area Running Centre at Pirnhow Street and has applied to the Aviva Community Fund for a grant towards the project. Anyone wanting to support needs to register and vote via https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk before November 20.
