North Norfolk Beach Runners have been out and about during September.

Sarah Morter was at the Great North Run and finished in 26,849th place with a time of 2:25.02.

Nine Beach Runners were among 307 finishers of the Jolly Jaguars 10k at Coltishall. First Beach Runner home was Lynton Battrick (40-44) in 39.14 for eighth place while the middle order featured a threesome of Stephen Roe (50-54) and Adrian Dyde (55-59) pacing Becky Garret (15-39) to a personal best of 49.43.

Jen Armstrong was among the 300 starters of the Chiltern Wonderland 50 mile, finishing in 11:39.44 for 22nd out of 39 female finishers.

As has been reported elsewhere, Beach Runner Andy Kett suffered a stroke in the closing stages of this race. The club immediately set up a Go Fund Me page with the aim of raising £3,000 to assist Andy and his family and the fund has already topped £16,000 (www.gofundme.com/6ge56-andys-fund).
