Adrian Mussett victorious in King’s Lynn run

May 11, 2017 by  

Over 2,500 people participated in the King’s Lynn Grand East Anglian Run, one of the largest charity races in the region.

As was the case at last year’s race, the sun was shining, which made the conditions perfect for the race. The runners at the sold-out event were raising funds for numerous causes.

Hundreds of spectators were in attendance to show their support for the runners in the 10k race, which saw runners make their way through the centre of the town and the pathway along the River Ouse. Such historic sites as Greyfriars Towers and Red Mount were among the highlights along the route.

Adrian Mussett from Colchester won the race after he completed the event in just under 33 minutes. Andre Leach finished second and Malcolm Muir secured third place. Faye Fullerton scored her own victory, when she beat Emma Risbey when she was named the first woman across the finish line.

The 1.2 mile Bespak Mini GEAR fun run was another popular event on the day. Bespak’s managing director, Kayvan Djamarani said that it was a great day for all.

Not-for-profit organisation Run For All organised the event along with King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council, and Alive Leisure. Organisers had outsourced leaflets and banner printing, among other marketing material, to ensure that the event would be a success and seemed to have had the desired effect.
