Dereham 10 Mile race

‘Hi all.

Race reporter reporting for duty! Here we go…

The 7th race in the Sportlink Grand Prix took a not so unlucky 13 happy runners to Dereham for the 10 mile road race. Well supported by eight fellow runners and family, plus Harley for some woofs along the way.

Starting and finishing at Neatherd High School, the run takes you away from the town centre and out onto some beautiful back roads in the countryside. The heading out seems flat but as the last 2-3 miles approach there is definitely an uphill as well as some bigger hills thrown in on the loop round!

Was perfect running weather today as the sun only just made an appearance towards the end, was the right temperature with very little wind. A beautiful day for a run 😊

Thank you to all those to popped up around the course and those who waited at the finish line (Marie Pacey, Mark Riseborough, Hayley Eyre, Mrs. Senior, Sarah Raven, Pete Alder, Denise Leader, Kerrie Coslett & Harley). Seeing you all kept our spirits up as well as the great support (& cake) from the hosts,  Dereham Runners AC.

Fantastic performances today with seven PB’s and three podium spots, well done 👏’
