Round Norfolk Relay 2016

I would like to thank everyone involved in helping and running in the RNR this year. The team this year covered a distance of 197.93 miles, over17 legs in 23 hours, 40 minutes and 30 seconds- (7.11 minute miling). We finished 4th in the prestigious club category class and 10th overall out of 59 teams- a great team performance. We entered the Club class category which requires at least 5 women and a minimum of 6 veterans; this is a true reflection of the clubs strengths.

This was our 17th year at the event and as usual is a really good team building weekend. As well as the 17 runners, the team was supported by Mike Ridger, David Sampson and Paul Mace without their help it would be impossible to complete the race, so thank you!

Individual performances and results will be shown in the results section and are also shown on the RNR website- www.roundnorfolkrelay.com

I don’t like highlighting individual performances as this really is a team race but it’s worth mentioning Claire Day, Sarah Shepheard and Maria Heslop who were the quickest female runners on their individual legs.

Maria also won the highest age graded performance for her run on stage 11. We also as a club won the best time estimate. We were only 28 seconds outside our prediction after nearly 24 hours of running.

Next years race is on the 16-17th September 2017 so keep training hard and thank you everyone again!

James Ridger
