Three Fernhoppers made it to the Banham 5K on Friday evening.
Results were not available at the time of publication but these excellent photos were; we have our priorities sorted at BFH!
Paul Meader 43rd with 27.25 min
Helene Grandison 49th with 28.31 min
Lynn Gilyatt 63rd with 39.29 min.
No that’s not a comment on the camera work, but you can take a sneak peak at this year’s course here:
Hope you enjoy it! Once you’ve watched it you can sign up to have a go yourself here!
There are a few features of the Hopper calendar which are not that obvious but which you might find useful when entering races. Here’s a very short video explaining what’s available.
We spotted this heron in Brandon Country Park on last Tuesday evening’s run:
It made a pleasant change from deer and squirrels, lovely though they always are! (Click on the image for larger version)
Please note that this weeks 5k handicap time trial will not be in either of the usual places but will instead be just outside Mundford.

Coming from Brandon, take the 3rd exit from the Mundford roundabout, towards Thetford then turn IMMEDIATELY left towards West Tofts.
Coming from Thetford, turn right into the West Tofts road just before the Mundford roundabout (if lots of traffic go completely round the roundabout and follow directions above).
Coming down the Lynn Road, take the 2nd exit from the Mundford roundabout, towards Thetford then turn IMMEDIATELY left towards West Tofts.
Go about 400m passing the two houses on the left. This is the start.
Drive another 400m to forestry fire road 38 on the right and park in the wide entrance – not blocking access please.
Warm up on the way back to the start.
First, slowest, runner away at 6:30pm
“Enjoying a lovely weekend in Boston. This is me on Boston Common! It’s a gorgeous sunny day today. A balmy 28 degrees!” Helene
As promised more pictures from our day out supporting Lynn Gilyatt in the London Marathon.
It was a valiant effort, and Lynn didn’t do too badly either!
Massive congratulations to Lynn Gilyatt who completed the London Marathon for the Fernhoppers on Sunday 26th in a time of 6:27:18!
She really epitomised the spirit of the club with a tenacious approach to her training and the race itself. In short she short did us proud!
More pics of our day out supporting her when I get some time later in the week.
