LAST Thursday, 23 members of the Bungay Black Dog Running Club took part in the Jim Jervis Memorial Run in memory of Jim who was a founding member and club president until his untimely death last July.
The course followed Jim’s original training run over Bath Hills and through Earsham.
On a warm summer’s evening, Marlene Jervis set the runners off from the Maltings Meadow in Bungay and then rejoined the runners at Earsham Queen to raise a glass in honour of Jim.
Meanwhile, on Sunday, Ian Taylor completed the Faversham Marathon which involved 40 laps of Faversham Recreation Ground in North Kent. He finished in 3 hours 40 minutes.
On the previous Friday, 16-year-old Marcus Sladden finished an impressive 53rd in the Worstead Festival five-mile race. His
time was 31min 59sec. He was followed by Chris Chorley, 70th (33:07), Bobbie Sauerzapf, 158th (38:18) and Phillip Neave, 202nd (40:17).
A total of 322 runners took part.
