Norwich Road Runners has a number of top class female runners but I am sure that all would agree that our Mandy Foyster is the club's most loved and admired female runner. Not just for her amazing achievements in Ultra Distance running but also for her love and compassion for both people and animals. However we all know that she has a very soft spot for sheep! She has been instrumental in raising money the Mirkwood Rest Home for Retired Sheep.
Recently Mandy was nominated for a category in the Broadland District Council's Community at Hearts award ( See section below) and we are delighted to advise that she won the 'Sporting Achievement of the Year award' for entering and finishing the Spine Race. Well done, Mandy, you continue tio inspire us all

Chris Harrison's Report
It’s the end of September and the end of the virtual Round Norfolk Relay - this evening I submitted my teams timesheet which I also wanted to share with you all.
They have all performed superbly and it was fantastic to have 2 of the juniors be involved with this team too - future looks good for the club!
Some achieved new ‘unofficial’ PB’s, some threw themselves across the virtual ‘line’ and some logged times that they didn’t think would be possible. The total time combined is very impressive.
Thanks to them for getting involved - despite leaving me sweating as some ran as late as today!
Well done all of you that ran and represented - let’s hope we can do it again for real next year
Ben Kendall's Report
The results for Team Mintcake (formerly known as Team 1) in the Round Norfolk Relay have been collated and submitted. Here they are if you're interested. Spoiler alert: we didn't quite beat the Group A team.
Still some great running all round, especially as a lot of us aren't doing as much as we normally would. You've all been great at supporting each other and hopefully it's helped us feel more like a club, even though we can't physically meet en masse.
Well done to everybody involved and thanks for making it so much fun.

IPSWICH EKIDEN RELAY 2020
104 Norwich Road Runners have been pounding the streets, parks and country lanes over the past 3 days.
Virtual races are now an established part of running life and as a club we are going from strength to strength!
From the marketing, to the captaining, to the running..everyone has been on point!!!
On the whole, the weather has been quite kind to us and that has resulted in some blistering times this weekend!
Please watch out for the next post as all senior results will be published.
Many thanks for all your hard work and involvement. I hope as a result of the relay a few of you have been introduced to members that you maybe hadn’t met before.
We look forward to the next big race!!!
