Blickling & Boston Half Marathon May 2021

BLICKLING HALF Well that was a warm one and the hill/friend at the end turned out to be a bit unfriendly. Simon Partridge who set off 5 minutes after the first runners overtook all but one which gave him first overall place in 1.17.12. (diamond standard). This was Simon’s last race as a senior man.  Arron Coe running with an…

Snetterton 5k April 2021

We knew it would be windy at the Snetterton race track. We could blame Matt Stone. Wherever he races it always seems to be blustery. The lads were a bit dubious about racing for the first time in over a year and were certainly glad to get this one out of the way. Simon Partridge 16.54 8th overall and 5th in his category…

Athletics Norfolk 3000m & 1500m October 2020

It wasn’t exactly ideal conditions, especially with a gale force wind down the home straight, but it didn’t stop all our members having great runs. Billy Eccles celebrated his 13th birthday with a 1500m personal best time of 5.30.9.  Paul Ward, Matthew Crane and Greg Howard were up against each other in the same race and all running the 3000m distance for the first…

Colin, in the tough Coniston trail marathon and in equally bad weather conditions, finished first MVet 60…

Mad March Hare 2020

Not the best of conditions out on the airfield today. At some points the runners were getting stopped dead in their tracks by the strong winds. I think the wind added at least 2 or 3 minutes to their times. Scott Walford was 1st overall in 34.50 and well over a minute ahead of the second runner. It didn’t make up for his…
