Twenty nine Bungay Black Dog Running Club members enjoyed a half marathon at Wissey on Sunday.

The undulating course and breezy conditions made it a challenge, so many congratulations go to Will Law (second claim Black Dog) who came second overall in one hour and 18 minutes, and to Sabrina Norton who won her age category in 1:47.

Bobbie Sauerzapf also had an amazing run as she was on a 52-mile walk the day before but still completed the half in 1:56.

The full Black Dog results were: 20 Jon Wiles 1:30:52, 43 Jesse Timberlake 1:37:44, 60 Richard Dye 1:43:56, 74 David Neeve 1:47:40, 75 Sabrina Norton 1:47:40, 84 Hugh Roberts 1:48:43 86 Simon Sparkes 1:49:04, 88 Mik Carr 1:49:24, 91 Bridget Shaw 1:50:45, 94 Stuart Govey 1:51:26, 107 Robin Ashe 1:54:18, 108 Bob Paul 1:54:20, 117,Bobbie,Sauerzapf 1:56:20, 120 Anna Gray 1:58:32, 121 Kevin Ellis 1:58:32, 122 Toby Craig 1:58:35, 137, Graham Sampson 2:01:47, 156 Christine Ashe 2:08:31, 163 Sarah Sparkes 2:11:12, 168 Jayne Capps-Jenner 2:12:38, 184 Laura Deal 2:18:50, 185 Ed Phillips 2:20:59, 192 Rachel Hirst 2:26:14, 193 Victoria Pullinger 2:26:16, 195 Steve Warman 2:27:27, 196 Alice Kirk 2:27:32, 202 Stacey Remblance 2:33:36, 203 Judith Sadler 2:33:53, 210 Tracey Haylock 2:36:53.

Meanwhile, five Black Dogs enjoyed perfect weather conditions to take part in Tri Anglia’s Autumn Waveney Triathlon.

A pool-based sprint event, this triathlon is particularly popular with those new to the sport – it comprises a 400m swim, 19km bike ride and a 3.2km run.

Jo Cox – taking part in her first ever triathlon – put in a great performance to finish first in her 40-49 age category in a time of 1:05:56 and was placed fifth woman overall.

The leading Black Dog finisher was Julian Davis, who just missed out getting under the hour mark with a time of 1:00:51.

Jackie Bell came out on top in the 50-59 age group in 1:07:58, finishing seventh woman overall, closely followed by Nikki Holland-Gladwish in 1:09:41 and placing 10th overall woman. Simon Smith completed in 1:06:58.

At Gorleston on Saturday, Alice Kirk was supported by a great turnout of 42 Black Dogs among a field of 382 parkrunners for her 200th parkrun event along the cliffs route amongst a field of 382 other competitors.
