Road Sheffield Run, something a little bit different. The race comprises 11 timed stages making up 20km with 4.5km jogging between stages. You can enter as a solo runner or as a pair. 3 pairs make up a team (so 6 runners). We currently have 5 pairs entered so please come and join us, it is a lovely route which is mainly off road. We plan to eat together at the end.
Rosemary Armstrong was pleased to be running in a warmer climate, she finished this international half marathon in 2:06:08, 1419th place.
Well done Rosemary.
Lucy competed at the England Athletics Indoor Champs today and has come away with a Bronze medal in High Jump and got to the final of the 60m Hurdles and ran a pb. Julie Chappell.
George Westerman Barton & Humber cross country and he was delighted to finish in second place.
Norton 9 – 1 March 2015
Brutal conditions for this favorite local race, the gale force wind hindered the runners for about 80% of the race with the only help the wind offered was in the first and last miles. Our thanks to Askern for arranging another great race, be sure to enter the Askern 10k.
Lots of PB’s for the unusual distance of 9 miles and some new to the distance. Some of the team incorporated an 18+ miles long run into the race and things are looking very good for the marathon training they are doing.
