Ellisons Ipswich Ekiden - 7 August 2022

After a break of 2 years Ekiden was finally back at Woodbridge School and true to course, it was a baking hot day!

We had 3 senior and 2 junior teams taking part and they all did superbly considering the heat. Even though the course is relatively flat, it was still challenging, but the atmosphere and support from all the Clubs was great.

Out of 142 Clubs our men's team (Steve Hunt, Glen Avis, Aiden Bell, Ryan McNeil, John Jousiffe and Joel Bamsey) came 40th with a combined time of 3:07:50. Our ladies team (Sam Cooper, Nathalie Hooper, Rachel Bodsworth, Amanda Dunn, Belinda Godbold and Vicky Tapp) came 53rd with a time of 3:33:00 and our mixed team (David Miller, Brial Airlie, Jo Sargent, Julia Bilotta, Geraldine Suckling and Samantha Tapp) came 134th with a time of 4:22:00.

In the Juniors heat there were 40 clubs. Our over 12 team (Daniel Cooper, Harry Alexander, Laila McNeil and Ella Baalham came 22nd with time of 31 minutes and the under 11 team (Felix Clover, Isaac Miller, Elissa Bell and Pippa Alexander) were 34th with time of 36 minutes.

Well done to everyone!
