Thanks to all the Norwich Road Runners who took part in the Alex Moore Relay. Look like you had a good day for it
The race is run around the village of Skeyton. Teams consist of three runners: 1st runner (1 lap - 2.2 miles), 2nd and 3rd runners (2 laps - 4.4 miles) and together (all 3 runners as a team) (1 final lap - 2.2 miles). The race starts from the Goat public house,.Sounds a good starting point!
Alex Moore was a former Norfolk Gazelle who died in a sky diving accident in 2003 at the age of 24, leaving a fiancée, Clare Neve. An RAF Corporal, originally from Caterham in Surrey, Alex was a talented runner who joined Norfolk Gazelles in 2001. To celebrate Alex's life, Norfolk Gazelles set up the Alex Moore Memorial Relay in 2004. Starting from The Goat Inn in Skeyton, the race is for teams of three and is run over one of Alex's regular training routes close to the former RAF Coltishall where he was based. The race has a relaxed, fun atmosphere enjoyed by runners and their families and attracts over 30 teams from across Norfolk. There is also a bench on the Marriott's Way to remember Alex and the training runs he shared along this route with his fellow Norfolk Gazelles.
