Cullum Road/Ramada Hotel and Newmarket Rd Bury St Edmunds

In Abbey Gardens, St Edmundsbury Cathedral, St Peters Brewery on January 2, 2006 at 6:21 pm


12.45pm 5.4 miles in 42 minutes 42 seconds.

Year to date mileage 10.8

Month to date 10.8 miles

Weather: dry mild and sunny.

An easy but slow run around the centre of Bury. I haven’t dared due anything longer or harder as I still have a rotten cold.

Forthcoming races I am considering entering include the following:

5th February Lakenheath 5 – Anyone have any details on this race ? I can’t find anything on it but presume it starts from the cricket ground.

19th February St Peters Brewery Great East Run 20k at Bungay . This year they have dropped the 10k race which is a pity as 20k seems an odd distance. However this is a great race and must be recommended to anyone who has never entered before. An added attraction is at the finish you are well looked after with hot soup and a free bottle of the distinctive beer from
St Peters Brewery. Even if you don’t immediately recognise the name you will know if you have had one of these real ale beers from a supermarket because they come in an unusual oval shape bottle. Some of their best beers include Suffolk Gold and Golden Ale. That’s three great breweries in Suffolk along with Adnams and Greene King.

26th February Muscular Dystrophy Bury 20 & Nearly Ten from Nowton Park Bury. As I am planning to do the Bungay race and I don’t think I am ready to run 20 miles just yet I am going to enter the nearly ten. Yes I am whimping out but its more realistic.

  1. v. cool pic. natural conglomerate or man made?good luck choosing your races!Happy New Year!

  2. Hi Elizabeththese are some of the remains of a benedictine monastery which was founded in the 7th century. This picture shows the remains of the church which I think was built in the 11th century. It was dissolved & destroyed during the reign of Henry the 8th.

  3. v. cool. It really is an amazing pic.
