An awesome effort from team Ryan's (Helen Jerrold, Mary Wicks, Sandy Page, Jason Dove, David Ford & Tim Larke) at the Ipswich Ekiden Relay on Sunday, despite the heat they finished 8th in the social group.

The Ekiden is a race which originated in Japan where teams of runners competed in a relay over long distances. The races are very popular and some attract TV audiences of over 1 million. Ipswich JAFFA have been staging the only Ekiden held in the UK for over 20 years.
It was also Ryan's Director Robin Belsom's last time as Race Director after a 10 year reign, so a big thank you goes to Robin and his JAFFA team for organising another great event.
