Freethorpe 10 Miles - 25-01-2015
By Hadleigh Hares, Jan 25 2015 09:27PM
A very small contingent of Hadleigh Hares (I am pretty sure it was just me) travelled north of the border for the Freethorpe 10.
It was a gently undulating course that was surprisingly exposed and breezy. Every corner we turned somehow managed to be straight back in to the head wind.
It was typical Norfolk scenery; fields of turnips, a huge sugar beet factory and a brief lovely section running along the Yare at Reedham.
I left pleased having recorded my first sub 1:25, in my second 10 miler. There was little evidence of Suffolk and runners and clubs. However, the course record was broken by Tom F in a Woodbridge shirt.
The one Suffolk exception was a great turn out by the Bungay Black dogs. They travelled in such numbers that they block booked the local pub, preventing us from having a well earned post run pint and Sunday lunch.
