Run was tribute to club stalwart

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.
