Thirty North Norfolk Beach Runners were among the 676 who ran the Bam Nuttall Freethorpe 10 mile, organised by Great Yarmouth & District Athletics Club on Sunday.

In blustery but mild conditions, first home among them was Chris Merrylees, now competing in the M40-44 category.

He came second, and ninth overall, with a time of 59.17.

Second Beach Runner home was Chris Parker (senior) in 1:01.53 for 24th overall, while first female Beach Runner was Charlotte Neale in 1.05.00 for 49th overall, with Neil Adams (M40-44) right alongside.

Two Super Seventies squad members were there. Club president Noel Spruce (M70+) claimed fifth in category and 523rd overall in 1:37.40 while Brenda Kinch, classified in F65+ though a septuagenarian, gained third in category and 580th overall with a time of 1:43.29.

First home was Alan Darby from Ely Runners, who won in 54.26, at his third attempt.
