Snetterton 5k and 10k 14-1-18

Snetterton Race Track 5K 14-1-18

Snetterton race track was the setting for a morning of racing on Sunday 14th January. Two races were held at this amazing venue with the first being the one lap 5k course starting at 10.30.

Three Great Yarmouth Road Runner ladies took part in the fast and flat course taking them around the race track and in to the pit lane to finish. The morning started with a group warm up to some pumping music, followed by the track’s safety car to start the runners off on their way. There was a fantastic racing atmosphere throughout the race with music playing at intervals from a variety of live performers stationed around the course.

All three runners had a great race with Lorrain Dawson coming home first for the team with a superb finish time of 25:52. Next in was Fiona Williams with a very respectable time of 28:01. Followed by Angela Grey (2nd Claim for GYRR) with a great time of 30: 25.

The trio didn’t end their GYRR duties there. Staying on to support, clap, cheer and generally make a lot of noise for the GYRR runners taking part in the 10k race.

Well done ladies!
