A healthy number of Great Yarmouth Road Runners turned out to race in the popular Run Norwich 10k race on Sunday. Along with 5475 other competitors, 35 GYRR lined up to take on the challenging route through the landmarks of Norwich City.


Despite yet another sweltering day the course records were broken in both the male and female races. Nick Earle of City of Norwich AC (CONAC) set a record of 30.49 whilst the new female record was set by Danielle Nimmock, also CONAC, in an impressive time of 35.03.


With over 5000 finishers John Bone earned the highest age group finishing position of the day for GYRR.  John finished in 49.43 in the over 70 age category which is an exceptional performance.


Congratulations to team GYRR especially to those who had already raced the Ipswich 10k on the Friday night!
