Ten runners represented the Great Yarmouth Road Runners on Sunday May 19th at ‘Chase the Train’ Aylsham to Wroxham.

With a start time of 10.30am and the train leaving the same time it certainly wasn’t going to be easy to chase The Bure Valley train to Wroxham!

The route took the runners along an 8.9-mile narrow path alongside the railway line to Wroxham.  The train passed not long in to the run with plenty of supporters onboard to encourage everyone.  It did stop at one of the stations for many of the runners to catch up however. The scenery was beautiful on route but the terrain was a little rough in places. It was a little tricky under foot and there certainly was a very subtle incline along most of the route.

All ten road runners ran a superb race bringing home some great finishing times.

Coming in first for the road runners was Mark Stone (the only male who had entered for GYRR) 1:05:16 followed by Emma Dawson 1:15:12  Jane Middleton 1:20:13  Fiona Williams 1:23:13  Kate Wakefield 1:29:06  Elise Mitchell 1:30:30  Anne Standerwick 1:34:30  Rochine Symonds 1:34:49  Angela Grey 1:40:29 and Nicky McGee 1:40:29
