On a sub-tropical sunny Sunday in August, over 5,500 people laced up their trainers and undertook the 4th Run Norwich 10km. Amongst those hardy souls were 3 runners, running under the banner of the Canaries Trust:
Thomas Rowley – Thomas decided to give his usual pre-run meal of chicken balls a miss, and came home in 00:48:47, a fantastic time with the conditions out on the course.
Chris Newby – coming in in a time of 01:06:51, this was Chris’ third Run Norwich event, and apparently even the searing heat and occasional hills hasn’t put him off entering for his fourth event next year!
Mandie Thorpe – despite struggling with an ongoing niggling foot injury, and weather conditions that aren’t the best for those of a titian persuasion, Mandie completed the course in 01:17:04. Mandie has completed every Run Norwich so far, and hopes to be on the course again next August!
Our three intrepid runners raised £500 for CSF’s The Nest project.
