Ben Blowes showed signs that 2015 could be equally as successful as last year on Sunday when tackling the Watford Half Marathon.

The Newmarket Joggers member, who lowered all his personal best times from five kilometres to the full marathon distance during 2014, finished 32nd after completing the hilly course in one hour 27 minutes 20 seconds.

n Closer to home, the Joggers reported good numbers turning out to their 10-week beginners’ course, which is held in the town every Monday.

The leadership team in charge of the 35-strong group have been delighted with the enthusiasm and commitment of those signed up to the programme which is approaching its fourth week.

n Newmarket Cycling and Triathlon Club’s Sheila Shead claimed second place in her age category during Saturday’s Milton Country 5k Park Run.

Despite encountering slippery mud and freezing temperatures, Shead finished the contest in 28.49.
