Claire Jacobs smashes Club records!



Claire is an excellent club runner and has recently been taking part in various events. On the 1 October she ran Kesgrave Park Run in 18.06! Negotiating a strong head wind on the exposed part of the course & slow tricky section through the woods, Claire cruised to 1st lady & 2nd overall.


She then broke her own ladies 10k club record as part of the triumphant Suffolk Ladles gold medal winning team at the Eastern Intercounties 10k champs, run in conjunction with the Cambridge Town & Gown 10k. Despite still suffering from the after effects of a cold Claire sped round in 36.15 to finish 5th & take her place on the podium as part of the Suffolk winning team.


She continued her excellent road form by cruising to victory in the Harwich Runners promoted Wix 5. Contending with an undulating course & heavy wind & rain, Claire crossed the line in 29.15, putting her 5th on the all time ladies performances list for the course.


She finished her autumn racing season in fine style on 20 November competing in the Verona half marathon, the Italian city world famous for its opera & the home of Romeo & Juliette. Claire finished in second place in an outstanding time of 1.18.45 and a new Hares club record by 4 mins!
