Mike Groves 10K

A run in the Sun

A good number of Norwich Road Runners were among the 578 who took part in the Mike Groves 10K organised by Coltishall Jaguars, and raced on the airstrip at the famous old airbase, now a business site. The problem with airbases they are normally designed to take full advantage of the prevailing winds and there isn’t much shade!. This was the problem on Sunday 2nd March with the heat and wind making racing hard for runners. However, despite the conditions Amy Beck sealed first place in the Female Open section in a time of 00:42:20.5 (chip 00:42:18.8) while Jessica Behan came second (00:43:28.0 Chip 00:43:23.0). Marc Coles came third in a time of 00:38:36.0 (Chip 00:38:34.9) and Chris Bullock was fifth in 00:38:55.7 (Chip 00:38:54.2)

In the Mike Groves Junior Race Archie Manton romped home in a time of 00:08:35.4 to secure fourth place while Archie Crow was sixth in 00:08:35.4. Well done to you both and to all the other club juniors who raced,
