Will the race happen?  Will it not?  Firstly we have to say really well done to Norfolk Gazelles for their first rate of regular updates deciding if the race would go ahead, as some of us know that would have been a very tough decision to make so close to the event.

They got it spot on and the weather actually really improved pretty much around the whole time the race was held.

We had another really strong showing today for what is a popular local race, with a bit of a hilly start runners had to brave the headwind around the first half of the race before getting a downward hill around mile 4 before you push for the finish.

Well done all of you that took part today, shout out if you got a PB or even hit you personal goal - the results are available below too.

27/10/2019 Started 0900

Over 70 Norwich Road Runners gathered on the chilly, but bright and clear, Sunday morning for CONAC'S very popular race in Trowse Norfolk . Their website very accurately describes the race. 

'Competitors run beside Whitlingham Broad before following a two-lap route along quiet roads through the heart of Trowse and close to Whitlingham Hall. This race has become a real value-for-money event with beautiful scenery and great viewing opportunities for supporters and spectators.

First three males NRR were  Marc Coles (00:36:51.2) Tom Bristow  (00:37:00.6) and Mark Garett ((00:37:54.1) taking 9,10 and 18th place  while Amy Beck(00:38:15.9)Jessica Behan (0:39:33.1) and Rachel Miller (00:44:21.99) took 3rd 5th and 14th places in the female category, with Amy taking 2nd place and Jessica 4th place in the FS category. Rachel took 3rd place in the F45 category. Mark was 2nd in the M55 category with ,as he remarked on Facebook, his first sub 38 since 2013.
