15 members descended on Amsterdam to take on the marathon, half marathon or 8k race. The team said it was a fantastic weekend with the course achieving personal best results. The weather was good to them and finishing in the run inside Olympic stadium was amazing with great support & atmosphere around the course. They finished the weekend off by celebrating & seeing some of the city's iconic sites.
Closer to home in north Norfolk saw 7 members take on the Holt 10k race held by north Norfolk beach runners. Home first for the club was Chris Haylock with an incredible time of 37:47, closely followed by Tom Galley 38:04
Mid-week saw our very own Vicki Grice represent Great Britain in the Ibiza ETU Aquathlon Championships. Vicki was up against some very strong competition. She finished an incredible 7th Place & was 3rd Brit back which means she has now managed to pre-qualify for the 2019 European Championships.
Karle Howard was also there representing Team GB taking part in the cross Duathlon & finished 14th in his age group category.
With Lowestoft Parkrun celebrating its 3rd Birthday on Saturday 27th, Lowestoft Road Runners were once again invited back to pace the event starting from 17 minutes & every minute from that till 34minutes. 81 personal bests were achieved that day and the event was praised by many via the parkrun event's Facebook page, thanking the club for excellent work and taking the time out to help the community with the ever going event.
