Windmill Surgery Phlebotomist, Jayne Allan completed the great North Run for Star Throwers.

Jayne did exceptionally well in the run although she said that she found the course quite congested in places, which hindered her time. It rained before and after the event but Jayne managed to stay dry during the run.

So far Jayne has raised approximately £70 with donations still coming in. Jayne's next run is the Norwich half marathon (13.1 miles) on Sunday 28th November at the Norfolk showground, starting at 11am. This is a rural 2-lap course which starts and ends at the showground and follows a reasonably flat route through Easton, Colton and Marlingford. She is hoping to improve her time at this run.
Jayne, from Deopham is a member of the Wymondham Running Club and is a keen runner. The Bupa

Great North Run is the premier event in the Great Run series and is firmly established as the world’s most popular half-marathon.
Well done Jayne and thank you from everyone at Star Throwers.
