ATHLETICS: A small group of endurance runners from West Norfolk Athletic Club did battle over the rolling hills of Thetford at the Norfolk Cross Country Championships.

U15 Holly Lawrence ran a strong race to finish 15th in 17.57.

U13 Charlie Tunmore arrived just as his race started so, rather than not run, he decided to run with the U15s and stormed to a time of 17.22 over the 4.2km course.

Arabella Gingell, competing in the U17 category, ran a steady race over the 6k course, finishing seventh in 27.55.

The final race of the day saw West Norfolk oldies braving the 10km course and they did not disappoint with Ben Collison recording 40.02 for 16th place in the senior men, and Lee Tunmore finishing in a respectable 45.30 for 22nd place in the 45-49 age group.
