Richard Dickson, Graeme Leeson and Ben Collison in Suffolk.

ATHLETICS: It proved to be a bracing 18.5-mile race from Bury St Edmunds to Clare at the weekend. 

After recent wet weather, the hilly Suffolk course was a quagmire but it did not stop athletes from West Norfolk AC and Ryston Runners AC, many of who had not raced all season due to coronavirus restrictions. 

Starting off in a stagger of five-minute increments, Ben Collison (WNAC) finished an impressive sixth out of 150 entrants, with Graeme Leeson (Ryston) battling to 23rd place, shortly followed by Richard Dickson in a strong 28th. 

Ryston’s Kelly De-Gol and Sarah Taylor both finished together in a respectable time of 3.50.25.
