This week is made up of mid week performances on the road (Worstead 5 Miler etc) and today on Track (Quad Kids) 

Worstead 5 Miler

The most popular event for our senior athletes this week was the Worstead Festival 5 mile race on Friday evening, which featured 7 Ryston Athletes, 3 of whom made the top 10 in a field of over 350 finishers. Callum Stanforth (3rd SM/ 27:27), Nic Bensley (9th/1stM45/28:51 PB) and Malcolm Tuff ( 10th/1stM50/29:03) swept the board in the men's team stakes.

Quad Kids

Sunday morning saw 16 Ryston Juniors compete in the final and home leg of the Athletics Norfolk Quad Kids Series.

Bailey Took in the older of the Boys age groups finished second overall athlete on the day, but that was enough to take the overall series win for his Age Group. Another Ryston athlete Charlie Wakefield won the overall athlete for the day for this Age Group.
