On Saturday 9th October 2009 Marion Walker competed in the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona Hawaii.

Marion completed the event in a time of 15:30:12. From live coverage of the event it seems that weather conditions were difficult with high temperatures and a strong wind on the return leg of the bike segment.

Marion managed the 2.4 mile swim in 1:48:11 and was on her bike after just 9.5 minutes in transition. The 112 mile bike ride was completed in 7:34:22 with an average speed of 14.79 mph.

The second transition of 12:20 separated the bike phase from the marathon which Marion achieved in 5:45:49, finishing the event in fine form to a welcome home from the female winner Chrissie Wellington also from East Anglia.

Race For Life 2008 by Jo Fishpool

I started running at the club around about 6 weeks ago. During my first visits I needed to walk for longer than I was running but as the weeks passed I began to run more than I was walking. During the training runs I began to feel more comfortable and confident running at my own speed.

With the instructions and encouragement of the coaches I built up my fitness and stamina and around 3 weeks ago I managed to complete a run of three miles in 45 mins during which we ran cross country then along roads through Framlingham and back to the sports ground. I have now reached the point where I can run a mile in just under 11mins. Although not a fast speed it is an amazing feeling.

I felt confident enough to enter the ladies "Race for Life" that took place on the 9th of July at the Suffolk Showground this is in support of the charity "Cancer Research". On arrival at the event it was pouring with rain with less than ideal running conditions. I compeleted the 5KM (3.1 miles) run in 43 mins. I still needed to walk at times but I am pleased with my performance and I look forward to doing more running in the future. I feel that this has been a personal achievement with a better understanding of my capabilities and an improved self confidence.
