NCTC fielded a large contingent as part of the joint Ipswich and Newmarket Triathlon Clubs Cross Country teams on Sunday. Competing against some of the strongest running clubs in the Suffolk area, they contributed to a solid result for the team.
Set in the idyllic grounds of Framlingham Castle, conditions were perfect to take on the challenging three-lap course. With a lung busting climb from the base of the Castle Moat, all members of the club acquitted themselves with a terrific performance.
First across the line from the Newmarket contingent was Peter Williams in 46th place with his daughter Parris not far behind in 115th place. Lee Dickinson was next home in 176th place with brother Gary not far behind in 204th; new member Trevor Sallis had a great first run and was snapping at Gary’s heels in 209th place.
Ladies Kate Harman and Lisa Redman battled it out throughout the 4.5 mile effort with Kate taking the honours in 229th place and Lisa close behind in 231st. It was a great mornings work from the club who look forward to repeating their effort at the next fixture in the Suffolk Cross Country Winter League at Woodbridge on 6 December.
