Seventeen Black Dog Running Club members made the short trip across the county boundary for Norwich Road Runners’ Broadland Half Marathon on Sunday.

The course, mainly on a loop of country lanes from South Walsham, belies its Norfolk Broads location with some testing hills. That apart, conditions were ideal and the organisation faultless.

Chris Chorley led the club’s contingent home while Bobbie Sauerzapf was the first Black Dog woman to cross the finish line.

Results: 70 Chris Chorley 1:37.28, 91 David Neeve 1:41.24, 146 Phil Henry 1:49:44, 159 Bobbie Sauerzapf 1:50:44, 169 Kevin Clark 1:52:18, 170 Neil Thomas 1:52:29, 197 Simon Sparkes 1:56:18, 199 Robin Ashe 1:56:15, 232 Karen Gedge 2:00:42, 250 David Hupton 2:03:32, 253 Ken Hurst 2:03:54, 259 Rosemarie Ball 2:04:47, 264 Sarah Sparkes 2:05:20, 271 Christine Ashe 2:06:56, 296 Graham Sampson 2:11:20, 341 Michael Ball 2:32:29 and 356 Paul Bird 2:49:17.
