Inviting weather conditions greeted the runners and spectators on arrival at Norfolk Snowsports Club on Easter Sunday morning for this ever-popular event hosted by City of Norwich Athletics Club.

Great Yarmouth Road Runners were well represented putting in some excellent performances with our very own Carol Spong racing her way to yet another victory in her age group.

The event was also an opportunity for those that knew him well to give remembrance to the late popular former club member Paul ‘Brooky’ Brookridge for which this particular event was one of his final to compete in whilst wearing GYRR Club Colours.

Of the 500+ runners to have completed the course, the overall winning times in the male and female races were 34:36 and 39:04 respectively.

GYRR Results:
39:00 - Marc Evans (21st)
40:59 -  Simon Bekker (36th)
43:17 - Mark Stone (69th)
