Race Report 01/05/17 - 10k Bank Holiday Weekend!

It was 10k madness this last bank holiday weekend and Norwich Road Runners, as usual, were out in force...

Sunday was the popular and sold out GEAR 10k held in King's Lynn. Starting in the market place and with a few thousand taking place it was a great atmosphere and with great running conditions. 24 Norwich Road Runners pounded the streets with some fantastic times and PBs - it also should to be pointed out that Claire Smith managed three PBs last week - Great Yarmouth 5 mile, Parkrun and GEAR 10k! Phew!  Well done everyone, a lovely Sunday morning.

Of course last week the racing wasn't just for the weekend, with the midweek season starting, it was the first in the Great Yarmouth 5 mile races, superbly organised by Great Yarmouth Road Runners. An impressive 31 NRR ran the first in the series, on a somewhat chilly night at the coast. Norwich Road Runners also picked up a few prizes with Daniel Middleton coming second place overall!

Daniel Middleton 2nd Male

Marc Coles 2nd M40

Adie Grand 1st M50

1st Vet Male team Adie Grand, Chris Bullock & Marc Coles

1st Ladies Team Jess Behan, Stacey Harper & Anne Millett

Also well done to Jessican Behan who was the 2nd female home and Keith Brighty and Stacey Harper who picked up first place in their age groups!!  Everyone surely earnt their fish and chips that evening!

Back to the weekend and the races continued with the Breckland 10k.  Always popular for a nice little leg stretch on the bank holiday and again, not ones to have much of a rest, 13 NRR ran with a few PBs again. Well done.

This bank holiday weekend, Norwich Road Runners raced far and wide again with Lisa Owen and Paul James Smith completing the Milton Keynes Marathon and Half Marathon. Lisa achieved a fantastic 14 minute PB and Good For Age to boot! Well done Lisa!

If you were looking for a challenge the 'Mid-Sussex Marathon Weekend' was taking place, which consisted of the East Grinstead 10 Mile, Haywards Heath 10 Mile and Burgess Hill 10k!  Marc Coles made the journey to complete all of these, well done on three races in three days! That could be one for next year's diary!

Well done everyone on another fab week of racing and running.  Just typing this is making me tired. I'm off for a lay down before the next Race Report!
