Super Love 15K
Starting the weekend off for Sudbury Joggers was Jules Cooper who ran the Thalha & Yamu Super Love 15K Mini Marathon in Phuket, Thailand. Our MS Warrior said that her race didn’t go according to plan, but she still managed to come first in her age group.
13 miles to 42 miles!
Anthony Harris ran the Brighton Half Marathon in 1 hour 49 minutes. Anthony said that the last few miles were really hard as it got very hot.

Things also went well for Andrea Hunt, Cliff Manning and Jenny Merry at Tarpley as they earnt themselves a new personal best for their efforts. For Jenny Merry, Lisa Dove and Lucy Cowlin, the 20 mile race is the furthest distance they’ve run.
On top of those achievements, Piotr Bulacz got first palce in his age category, Lucy Cowlin got second place in her age category and Gary Godfrey for 3rd place in his age category. Lisa Dove and Cliff Manning also received their 3rd place trophies for their age group in the 2018 Suffolk Grand Prix.
