Action for Ryston Runners moved off-road on Saturday where Becky Taylor made her mark on the Dukeries 30-mile race in Sherwood Forest.Successfully avoiding being mistaken for Robin Hood, despite sporting her Ryston green hoodie, Taylor finished an impressive third overall and first woman, in 4:36:15, a frustrating 17 seconds shy of the course record.Also off-road at the weekend, three Ryston Runners contested the positive Steps Bury to Clare race, with Graeme Leeson picking up second place in the M50 category/28th overall, in his distinctive Ryston kit, complete with bobble hat, after 2:52:48 of running.Not content with completing the 18 miles of the course, Justin Walker ran an involuntary extra four miles after taking the wrong route within a mile of the finish, eventually finishing 77th ninthM50 in 3:12:53.Martin Elsegood’s outstanding tenacity saw him complete the course in 5:32, 289th24thM55. Running 10k in other locations than Lynn, on Sunday Jane Ashby finished 263rd/466 in the Aylsham 10k, the fifth event in the Sportlink 2024 Road Race Series, to consolidate her position at the top of the F75+ category with another win, this time in 54:05, enjoying all of the picturesque course except for the three hills towards the end.A category win also came the way of Ruth Chadwick in the Breckland 10k at Croxton on Bank Holiday Monday in which she was placed first in the F55 category with 47:22 (72nd overall).Close on her heels, Chris Chadwick was 13th M50 and 85th overall with 48:29.
