Abbey Gardens Bury St Edmunds Suffolk

In 94th Bombardment Group, Abbey Gardens, Bury St Edmunds, USA on June 21, 2009 at 1:32 pm


Another Seven mile run in the centre of Bury St Edmunds Suffolk.

7 miles in 1 hour 4 seconds. Total for week 37 miles and 102 miles for June.

I am beginning to build up my mileage though I need to enter some races so that I have a target. I am happy just to run but having a race in mind helps give more of a focus to your training.

I again visited parts of the Abbey Gardens and this memorial to the 94th Bombardment Group can be found in one of the gardens near to the Park keepers hut. There are many links between England and the United States of America and this is one from modern times.

From 1943 to 1945 the 94th Heavy Bombardment Group was based at Rougham Airfield. Rougham is about 2 miles from Bury St Edmunds.

Over 300 operational missions took place in the 2 years with 8000 plus sorties and a bomb tonnage of more than 18,000 tons being dropped. 153 aircraft were listed missing in action. The B17 Flying Fortress and the B26 Marauder would have been a common site over the skies of Suffolk during this time as they were used by the 94th Bombardment Group.

Horsecroft,Nowton, High Green and Bury St Edmunds Circular Run

A nice bright day as I headed out for a run over a regular route which takes me up the Horsecroft road through Hardwick and Horsecroft.

Instead of cutting back over the Clare to Bury footpath I kept to the road and ran through the little hamlet of High Green.

There are only a dozen or so houses here including some almshouses on a aptly named rise. I headed down the hill and back into Bury via Nowton.

A forgettable run as I thought more about my injury then anything else. However wore my new running shoes a pair of Asics Gel Cumulus from Do Running who provide excellent quick service and a free technical t shirt with orders.
