Race Report 19/02/17 - Valentine 10k, Marriott's Way

If you ever wanted to find a reason to become a Norwich Road Runner, look no further than the stunning weekend of running just gone, PB's, achievements, support and encouraging friends, being a pretty perfect example.

The popular Norfolk Gazelle's Valentine 10k at Easton College saw Norwich Road Runners take to the road in force and with an amazing set of PB's - I've counted at least 14 so far and I think probably a few more!  Norwich Road Runners also won both individual and team medals in the Norfolk County Championship with the male senior and vets both taking Gold and the ladies senior and vets team with Silver.  There were also Individual Age Categories prizes for the race. Well done to everyone on such a great team effort. Please see the results below.

Meanwhile, over in Norwich saw the very first Marriott's Way Trail Half and Full Marathon.  The full marathon starting in Aylsham at 9.30am and the Half Marathon at Whitwell Station at 10.30am, finishing at Sloughbottom Park in Norwich.  Again, there were a good number of runners flying the Norwich Road Runners flag and congratulations has to be given to Chris Mickleburgh who won the Marathon in a brilliant time of 2hrs 50 minutes. Even more impressive that he did about a mile extra and still a 9 minute PB! Also, coming in third lady was Julz Williams, congratulations.

Well done to everyone who worked hard running and also those who turned out to support at both races. So far it's been a fabulous start to 2017.
