WITH the cross country season nearly at an end, North Norfolk Beach Runners took to the trails for one final outing off-road.

At Horsford, there were some blistering performances by the quickest members of the club as Andy Kett and Will Dorsett took second and third places in the senior race with the in-form Paul Muffett coming in just 10 seconds behind Dorsett, winning the 50-54 age group by some distance.

New member Robert Scarfe showed his talent by taking fifth spot and Darren Neale had a good run to finish seventh. In the 60+ age group, Terry Quigley looked to be in terrific form as he took first place whilst Jon Leach ran well to finish fifth in the 45-49 category.

The only lady Beach Runner at Horsford was Clare Donavan who continued her amazing form at the Horsford Series this winter, winning the ladies' race by an astonishing three minutes. If she can take that form onto the roads this summer, Clare will certainly run some impressive times.
