Race Report: 14/05/2017 GYRR 5 Mile & Parkrun

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside... Well 45 Norwich Road Runners certainly did on Wednesday 10 May at the second in the series of the Great Yarmouth Road Runners' 5 Mile races. Thankfully it was warmer than the first outing and with not too much of a head wind it proved lovely conditions for a blast around the flat 5 mile course and there were also some more fantastic team prizes and age category winners, very well done everyone!

Sunday was a 'race free' day last week. You may think that would mean lay-ins galore, a lazy Sunday reading the papers..... Not for NRR, no running races? No problem! There was plenty of training going on and long Sunday runs and NRR also sought out cycle events (a number of NRR cycled the 50 miles in the Spring Classic Sportive at Swanton Morley), beach runs, more triathlons (a few NRR competed in the The Stradbroke Tri) and also taking part in the Norfolk County Track and Field Championships at the UEA! Oh and a bit of parkrunning took, of course!

There were brilliant performances from Jessica Behan, Neil Walpole, Adie Grand and Chris Bullock at the Norfolk County Track and Field Championships at the UEA and with everyone bringing home an age category medal. Great running and a fantastic experience. We will look out for further track events in the future.

There was also the first in the season of the beach runs at Winterton. A few NRR met up at 8.30am for a 30 minute out and back which certainly blew away a few Sunday morning cobwebs. Then it was straight to the lovely beach cafe to warm up with coffee and bacon rolls. Well, there has to be a perk for an early morning run! Make sure you add Sunday 25 June to your diaries for the next one! Thank you to Wendy Smith for organising.

Have a great week of running everyone!
