Dereham 5k & Ipswich 5k Race Report

Clear blue skies, calm wind and 17 degree heat awaited the crowd of runners at the Dereham 5k. The two lap, fast and flat course through the centre of town saw many personal bests's from runners, as well as some age category awards.

We also had runners compete in the Ipswich Twilight 5k, which attracted a high quality field including athletes who represent Britain at an international level. The single lap, fast and flat course, starting and finishing at University of Suffolk, saw more than 120 runners take to the streets. The winner was across the line in 14:20, and more than 10 runners were sub 15. For those with faster legs, a great race to go and do on a Friday night. A mass participation 10k race follows afterwards.
