Race Report 19/03/17 - Mad March Hare 10km, Stowmarket & Reading Half Marathon

The transition to spring and summer (yipee) running has well and truly begun. The once distant thought of running in sunshine and shorts and vest is starting to become a reality and every weekend has enough races to keep everyone happy. parkrun, 10km, half marathon (and me busy with race reports!).

To kick us off this weekend is the popular Mad March Hare 10km organised by Coltishall Jaguars and with a brilliant 51 Norwich Road Runners in attendance! As usual there were some brilliant PBs, some by quite a few minutes, and achievements with the Ladies Vets (Caroline Houghton, Anne Millett, Alison Stewart and Mens Vets (Graham Watering, James Dunne, Mark Garrett) taking the first place team prizes, individual 1st place age category prizes for Alison, Mark and Anne and Zak Houghton taking first place in the Junior run. Well done everyone!

Further afield in Suffolk was the Stowmarket Half Marathon and three NRR headed over to tackle that one and looking at the medal on offer it was a good choice, well done Ben Snelling, Claire and Paul Smith for flying the NRR flag! 

Even further afield the Reading Half Marathon was taking place and another trio of NRR headed down. Marc Coles, Chris Bullock and David Crow took to the streets with over 10,000 others and produced some rather impressive PBs too, very well done!

Also, NRR were represented at no less than NINE parkruns again this week: Norwich, Colchester, Netley Abbey, Mulbarton, Catton, Blickling, Brundall, Lowestoft and Rutland Water!

Another fantastic week of running, Norwich Road Runners go from strength to strength!
