Race Report 09/04/17 - Norwich Half Marathon & Brighton Marathon

If there's a list of races where weather extremes are expected, prepared for and discussed for years to come then the Norwich Half Marathon would surely win first place. Past years have seen snow, ice, hail, sleet, torrential rain, wind and everything inbetween. The 2017 race, being the first since 2015 and in the new spring slot, still saw weather extremes only this time it was the sun who put in a glorious spring appearance raising temperatures to around 20 degrees as the last finishers crossed the line. Being an early heatwave this saw different challenges making it hard work for the 49 Norwich Road Runners who took part! Well done everyone, fantastic work - a half marathon in the heat is a challenge and a half! At least there was icecream at the finish!

If a half marathon in the heat is a challenge then respect needs to be given to the NRR who took part in the Brighton Marathon and further afield in the Paris and Rotterdam Marathons on Sunday too! Great running.

Very well done to everyone who ran at the weekend, looking forward to hearing everyone's Easter exploits next weekend!  Happy Easter!
