THERE was an extra celebration for James Bosher on his 27th birthday as he won the Little Bromley ten-kilometre road race.

The race attracted more than 400 competitors and Grange Farm and Dunmow Runners' Bosher led the field to finish in a personal best (PB) time of 33 minutes 48 seconds, breaking the club record set by Paul Holman in 1985.

There was also a PB for Claudine Davie (42m 1s), while Josh Sowman finished in 41m 37s, followed by Tara Corbett (55m 10s) and her daughter Laetitia (56m 52s).

Meanwhile, Grange Farm’s Jason Bepey completed the Brighton Marathon in three hours 45m 16s.

Graneg Farm will be holding a trail race at High Roding on June 11 and a 10km road race at Felsted on July 9.
