Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter, we will keep you informed of any developments
Congratulations to all 829 runners who completed the 2020 Ringland Half Marathon that starts and finishes at the Roar Dinosaur Park ,taking in a loop of the countryside in the Ringland area. Unlike last year this years race was run in bright clear and dry conditions. Well, dry up above as the course had suffered from the consistent rain during the week and was wet underfoot. When runners approached the mile nine area they had to accept the fact there was no escape and run through a small lake!
The race was won by Michael Eccles of Bure Valley Harriers in a course record breaking time of 01:12:24.7. Dominic Blake of Reepham Runners ( ( 01:14:42,) was second with James Johnson of Norwich Road runners (o1:17:13.1) taking third place. Marie French was first in the female category in a time of 01:24:14.4, Leanne Finch taking second place in in 01:24:49.9. Norwich Road Runners Amy Beck took third place in a time of 01:25:01.2
This year I am to compete in my 7th marathon - my 6th major marathon. It all began in 2008 when I ran my first marathon, in London. I’d always wanted to run 26.2 miles and had applied for 5 consecutive years since the age of 18 - to no avail. Following the birth of our 2nd and 3rd daughters (identical twins) - who arrived into the world no less than 8 weeks early - I decided I wanted to run for charity, to pay back even just a little of our gratitude for the care our daughters received in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) in the N&N hospital. I raised over £1500 for BLISS the premature baby charity.
It’s now 2020 - almost 12 years later and just 66 days until the big day in Boston and I am already overwhelmed with feelings of excitement and trepidation, all rolled into one! This time I have chosen to raise money for the EACH charity - I wanted to return to the theme of ‘children’ and to support something closer to home - the East Anglian Children’s Hospice - it feels right to match my first ever major fundraiser - for premature babies, to a fundraiser for a children’s hospice. I’m hoping that the money I raise this time will take my overall total monies raised to over £10 000.
In Boston, I am excited about completing a race which is recognised around the world as the most historic and biggest marathons of them all. I’m looking forward to bringing the 6 majors medal home - and most of all, I’m hoping to exceed my fundraising target of £10 000!

Thank you to my incredible husband for enabling me to travel all around the world to fulfil these dreams and to my children for tolerating my obsession and desire to train so much and also to each and every person who has inspired me, supported me, sponsored me, picked me up after a bad run, listened to me over and over again tell the story of a good run and most of all, been a part of this amazing journey - my road to Boston!
