They Ran The Square

Over 250 people entered into the spirit of the weekend by taking part in the two mile fun run to resurrect an old village custom of running the square of the original village.

Some ran, some walked, some almost crawled but they all made it home within just over 45 minutes, many of them in fancy dress in one of the best supported village events of the year.

The funrun was set off at Hethersett Junior School by Helen Lamb, who the previous Friday had retired as Head teacher of Woodside School. The event went along Queen's Road and Great Melton Road before turning left into Mill Road and then left again into New Road and back along Old Norwich Road past the King's Head and Queen's Head and back to the finish at the Junior School.

Before the off competitors were able to limber up with the help of top Norfolk athlete Paul Evans.

First back in an amazing time of just over 10 minutes was Norfolk runner Adam Lewis, although technically he was beaten by his one year old son Finlay whom he pushed in front of him in his buggy.

Once the elite athletes were through the way was open for the fun runners to finish in some most impressive times.
