Annual Club Relay - Marriott's Way - Sunday, 15 September 2019

Following the popularity of last year's event, this year's Annual Club Relay followed the same route along the Marriott's Way from Norwich to Aylsham and back to Norwich, with lunch at Whitwell Station.

Congratulations to all of the runners who took part in the Marriott's Way Relay today. We were lucky to have perfect running conditions on the traffic free route from Norwich to Aylsham and back.

​There were some big distances covered by many of the runners today, especially Angus and Martin, who both completed a mileage equal to a marathon. Here are the total miles:


​Angus Clark - 42km (26.1miles)

Martin Gooderham - 42k (26.1miles)

Sarah Ford - 33.5km (20.8miles)

Sam Brotherhood - 24.1km (15.0miles)

James Grantham - 23km (14.3miles)

Kate Grantham - 17.8km (11.1miles)

Lou Brown - 16.7km (10.4miles)

Donna Gooderham - 16.1km (10.0miles)

Daisy Grantham - 13.4km (8.3miles)

Jane Williams - 13.1km (8.1miles)

Seren Williams - 13.1km (8.1miles)


Note: Jane and Seren had too leave before lunch, so a great morning's work by both of them.


Also honourable mentions go to Claire and Laura (both recovering from injury) who joined us for lunch and took part in the walking stage afterwards.


Everyone was still enthusiastic at the end of the day and wanted to know the date of next year's relay. So watch this space!
