An in-form Scott, who originally came from Woodbridge and is still a second claim member of host club Woodbridge Shufflers, triumped in 31mins 19secs for the tough two-lap challenge around the town.

Now based in Lincolnshire, and a member of Notts AC, Scott clipped 12 seconds off the previous course best (31.31), which he had set on his way to victory two years ago.

In fact, this was the fourth year in succession that Scott had won the Woodbridge race, starting with his 2010 success (31.44). He had clocked 31.37 last year, having raced in Manchester the night before travelling down to Suffolk.

The 26-year-old has gone quicker, over the 10K distance, at other events, most notably last year when he chalked up an impressive personal best of 30.14 at the Wilne 10K, which incorporated the Midlands Championships. He also registered 30.34 at the Bristol 10K earlier this month.

Entwhistle was 94 seconds adrift, in 32.53 (a minute slower than his PB of 31.53 from Manchester last year), while Ipswich JAFFA’s Matthew Spencer took third slot with 33.28. He helped JAFFA to the team award.
