Around and about
Suffolk Winter League at Woodton
Bobbie Sauerzapf reports:
Thanks to everyone who helped and/or ran at Woodton cross country today (Sunday 8 March). Results to follow, but Jo Andrews (picture below by Tim Hirst) was the first lady home.

RAF Marham cross country
Bobbie Sauerzapf reports:
Wednesday 26 February. Chris Chorley and Rob Hall ran 10km in the wind and Potty and I ran 5km. Next race is 11 March at Nowton Park, Bury St Edmunds. 2.30 start. All welcome. Final event will be on 25 March at Catton Park, Norwich.
UK Inter Counties Cross Country
Christine Muttitt reports:
Jo and Tess Andrews represented Norfolk in the UK Inter Counties Cross Country Championships yesterday (Saturday, 7 Match). Jo said it was the hardest race she had run (so that must have been hard) but she still managed to come 50th. Tess competed in the under 15s girls and was 250th.
Thetford Trails Half Marathon
Rachel Hirst reports:
Today (Sunday 8 March) three Black Dogs (pictured below) were among 573 runners at the Thetford Trails Half Marathon.  It was a bright, blustery day.  The ground was dry, thankfully, but it was still hard work managing all the different terrain; loose gravel, lots of roots and lovely mossy grass and general uneven surfaces.  The route was very twisty, we ran down wide avenues of trees and along narrow paths with the wind seemingly in our face all the time.
Nicky Thorpe was the first Black Dog to cross the line in just under two hours.  This was her first half Marathon and first race as a Black Dog.  I came in at 2:16 and Graham 2:33.
We all agreed that though it was hard work it would be a race to repeat and to recommend.

Cambridge Half Marathon
Sarah Sparkes reports:
Well organised mass event with 11,248 runners. Great crowd support, beautiful route through central Cambridge, sunshine and slight breeze. Several bands along the route to keep us going. Jane Pattison, me and Simon (pictured below) and Hugh Roberts took part in this beautiful race today.
