Snetterton Race Track Half Marathon

Much (much!) warmer than last year, with a slight breeze (which got stronger as the race went on) but otherwise a perfect day for a run around Snetterton Race Track (3 times).

This year, was the first year of the Marathon (6 laps) at the track, so the runners for this started early and then the HM runners started about 30 minutes later.  The downside of this, for the Marathon runners, was the fact that the faster of them came upon the masses of the HM runners at the end of their first lap.

Once again, there was live music around the track and we’re pleased to see that a new Strava segment has been created called the Bridge Of Doom Switchback (for anyone who has run the course, you’ll know that the description for this is spot on!).  It doesn’t seem so bad the first time…..

Even with the ‘Bridge Of Doom Switchback’ we all managed PBs.  The training must be working!
