EAST COAST 10K

A hoard of 31 Harriers gathered amongst 898 runners along Great Yarmouth seafront for the annual 10K event, hosted by the brilliant Great Yarmouth Road Runners and their fabulous marshals! This was the final race of the 2019 Sportlink Grand Prix Series and with a slightly different course this year due to building work along the seafront, this meant that it was the first time that the race finished on the Wellesley Road Athletics Track. The start was a little manic and congested but once runners started to spread out we could settle into a decent pace - with Andy finishing in 30th position, out of 898 runners thatโ€™s some achievement, well done Andy ๐Ÿ‘! It was a long 2 lap route with a head wind along the sea front wall, and the added bonus of a group of singers at the turning point, singing songs such as โ€˜Iโ€™m Still Standingโ€™ (just!), โ€˜Keep On Runningโ€™ and โ€˜Chariots Of Fireโ€™ ๐ŸŽค, towards the finish we had the added out and back section and then jumped onto the lovely springy athletics track for the final push, giving runners that perfect sprint finish ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธโšก๏ธโšก๏ธ- excellent work everyone, some excellent times, first 10K races, first races, brilliant PBโ€™s and a great turnout, well done everyone ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘!!

NELSON KNEE KNOBBLER - SEA PALLING

5th Oct - Nelson Knee Knobbler

This was the last in the 2019 Nelson Knee Knobbler events hosted by Dunerunner and itโ€™s a tough one! The race starts at the bottom on a steep slope, you then run down the other side (or as in the case of the canicross runners - get dragged down the slope by the very enthusiastic canines, rearing to go!) and onto the beach. You run along the edges of the beach which at that time is quite hard compacted sand before turning and running back along, up and down the soft, sandy dunes - running with a dog at this point is a great advantage!! This is a great event and a great challenge - well done canicross crew ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ.
