Snetterton Half Marathon 2017 Race Report

Road Runners took to the tarmac at Snetterton Race Track

It was a weekend of autumn Half Marathons, with Road Runners taking part in both the Snetteron Half Marathon, and the St Neots Half Marathon. The weather for both was perfect running conditions, perhaps a little chilly to start with (4-5 degrees C), but with clear blue skies and very still wind, making for many personal bests. 51 Norwich Road Runners took part across both races, covering a total distance of 668 miles!

23 Road Runners took part in the Snetterton Half Marathon, at Snetterton Race Track. Three 7km laps with a sprint finish at the end, around Snetteron Race Track, gave runners a unique opportunity to run a half marathon distance, on tarmac, on a completely closed to traffic race course

Many congratulations to Ben Russell for winning the event in a stunning time of 1:13:17, more than 90 seconds ahead of his nearest competitor.
