Whilst more commonly associated with rubber from racing cars, on 19th November Snetterton Race track welcomed the rubber from the soles of 775 runners for the Snetterton Half Marathon. A change from road running traffic was not an issue and with the weather being cool, calm and dry it made way for good racing conditions. The race started on the Senna straight and following an anti-clockwise (the opposite to motor racing) 3 lap route around the track with an extension over the bridge from the Agostini bend to make up each 7km lap before rejoining the track. The race finished in the pit lane. Of the runners were eight members of Lowestoft Road Runners (LRR). First to finish for LRR was Chris Haylock returning on good form after recent injury blights to finish in 20th place in 1:24:41. Followed by Simon Cook 24th in 1:25:13, Martin Farr 57th in 1:30:30, Aaron Shrimpton 91st in 1:33:41, Matthew Reynolds 144th in 1:38:22, Susan Perry 150th in 1:39:04, Ian Chilley 404th in 1:56:52 and Emma Garrard in 505th in 2:06:53.
