BUNGAY FESTIVAL OF RUNNING - 800m FUN RUN/5K/10K/HALF MARATHON/DOUBLE DOGGIE/FULL MARATHON

 

A huge team of 35 Harriers turned out this year for the Bungay Festival of Running, with some running their first ever 5k and 10k events and we saw lots of PB’s which is always brilliant to see, well done to those that ran their first race event today, hopefully with many more to come, well done to all those that got a PB and very well done to all those that got out and ran! The route for all races except the fun run starts by running up, yes UP, Bridge Street and left at the top, out of Bungay, the 5k run then turns down Wainford Road and back to the BBD running field, while the 10k, Half and Full carries on and climbs Watchtower Hill, up the hill at the Tally Ho, the 10k runners then head down Deer Row, to Ellington Mill and down the path of doom back to the running field while the Half and Full runners head off to Beccles to come back via Geldeston and Ellingham, before the Full runners head round for their second lap!! Today was obviously also day 10 of Karl’s amazing challenge, 10 Bungay Marathons in 10 Days!! To watch his journey this week has been incredible, he has amazed us all with his strong will and non-stop determination to complete the challenge amid shin pain and swollen ankles, and all with a smile on his face and a wry comment!!

ONLY THE BRAVE 6 MILE/10 MILE OBSTACLE RUN

 

Raising money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, runners set out on their chosen distance of either 6 miles or 10 miles and make their way running, crawling, climbing and scrambling over, under and through the many obstacles and freezing water. Held on the Elveden Estate this event is now in its fourth year and attracts hundreds of brave entrants. Having done it myself two years ago when it was just 5 miles, the obstacles were fun but some of them pretty tough (Simon had to give me a shove over the hay bales  !!) so well done Laura, you are a machine!
