Good Running in Sandringham Estate

Two thousand loyal subjects assemble for Run Sandringham '22

Run Sandringham on Sunday (19 June) saw 1,260 finishers in the Sandringham Half Marathon and 319 more in the supporting Sandringham 5K, plus a busy Community Mile for all ages and abilities, in the second running of this popular event in the Royal Sandringham Estate.

The Event Village was open at 7:30 and the group warm-up for the 5K was at 8:40 for a 9:00 start. The course is truly spectacular, with a start and finish within the Sandringham Estate, passing directly in front of Her Majesty The Queen's winter residence and using surrounding roads and trails.

Ryston Runners provided the top three finishers: Callum Stanforth (16:50), Joel Espley (17:12) and Daniel Smith (17:33). The first woman was fifth overall – under 17 Ellie Loosley (Cambridge & Coleridge AC, 19:08) who ran Storeys Field parkrun in 17:29 last year. It was those Ryston Runners again who filled the remaining lead placings, namely Emma Wood (20:35) and Isabella McKenzie (21:41).

One hour later, as the final finishers were still arriving in the 5K, the Sandringham Half Marathon was up and running with a serpentine 13.1-mile circuit around the parkland and the neighbouring Norfolk countryside.

The top three men were Huntingdonshire AC athletes David Hudson (M40, 1:11:24) and Martin Amos (1:14:58) followed by the unattached Cameron Panting (1:20:36).

Tri-Anglia triathlete Lindy-Lee Folscher (W40, 1:25:48) took a firm grip of the women's race and was eight minutes clear of Louise McDonnell (W40 Wymondham AC, 1:33:57) and Claudia Baba (unattached, 1:35:58). 

The final finishers took 3:51:30 to complete the course and everyone received a goody bag, exclusive medal, downloadable certificate, and priceless memories of a fantastic day out in Royal Sandringham Estate.
