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!!!
So to say yesterday was the most fun had in ages is an understatement...
The Norfolk Gazelles “DON’T PASS IT ON” LOCKDOWN RELAY 2020
Certainly the longest and most tiring day in my short running life!! I don’t think any of us truly anticipated just how much fun yesterday would be.
17 legs of running spanning from 6am all the way to 11pm! People running in Norfolk, Wales, Ireland, Americas and Australia! 1500 runners giving their all in the harsh sunshine! (with a few head torches later on)
I honestly don’t think there wasn’t a runner who wasn’t inspired from the event.
I quoted Danielle Crane yesterday and I will quote her again today:
“I AM LOVING THIS! IT’S lIKE RNR! I DO MISS YOU ALL! X”
The Gazelles raised nearly £8000 for N&N Hospitals Charity and Nelson’s Journey which is incredible and the total is still rising!!!
I really don’t want to single out anyone as EVERYONE gave their absolute all, left it all on the table! Some people ran their hour and then kept coming back for more...and more!
The people involved yesterday all know who gave extra and I’m sure they will give these amazing men and women the credit they deserve!!
I will however announce that the winners for ‘Best Batons’ are:
Tony Millett & Anne Millett (joint)
You have all won a bottle of plonk, and a lucky dip prize!!!!😆🍷
If you wanted to get the memento Coaster they are now available to buy:
It was the most fun thing being your Captain for the day and I hope I kept you all going. It was bloomin’ hard keeping the data flowing in between working my milk bottle legs as well.
The main thing we will all take away from yesterday’s event is our camaraderie and how hard we worked for each other. When I asked you to go out there and run another hour, you just did it. The private messaging going on with you begging me to let you out there for another hour was a bit of a surprise for me too!😂
It’s been a tough time of late but things are looking up and as a runner, yesterday felt like the first day of summer and the first day of things feeling good again and bringing us all back together.
TEAM HUG 🤗
Well done all of you...
The Government’s announcement within the last hour relating to the spread of COVID19 is that everyone in the UK should now avoid "non-essential" travel and social contact with others to fight coronavirus.
In the light of this the committee have taken the decision to cancel all ordinary club nights and activities, starting from tonight( Monday 16/3/2020) until government advice has changed
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter, we will keep you informed of any developments
