HARWICH runner Robert Reason took a fine win in the latest 53-12 cross country league fixture today - but it was home club Ipswich JAFFA which secured the overall team victory.

Reason surged ahead on the second lap of the Martlesham course, and held off a late charge from JAFFA’s Matt Spencer to secure first place in the men’s race. Fellow Ipswich runner Daniel Simpson came an excellent third after also finishing strongly.

With a number of other JAFFA runners also packing into the top ten, it led to a clear victory for the home club’s men’s team.

JAFFA’s Jayne Williams won the ladies’ race, helping her team to 2nd place - and cementing an overall JAFFA win.

The final event in the 53-12 league takes place at Holbecks Park, Hadleigh, on February 3.
