Thorpe Forest Trail 10K
‘Lorrain flies solo for GYRR’
Always looking for a new challenge, Lorrain Dawson, Great Yarmouth Road Runner (GYRR), travelled to Thorpe Forest, Thetford, to take part in the Thorpe Forest Trail 10K.
Lorrain was the only GYRR who took part for the club, with many others competing in the popular Broadland Half Marathon. With it being an off-road course, the organisers informed the runners at the start that the course was slightly longer than a standard 10k course.
The scenic route went into the forest, out over a main road, then back into another part of the forest. Despite being muddy, undulating and uneven, Lorrain still managed to finish as 7th lady. She was 1st in her age group with a finishing time of 55.32.
