GT YARMOUTH 1/2 MARATHON 11/08/2019
GY Half This was my first time running the Great Yarmouth Half Marathon. It was a very well organised event with good facilities available at the Ormiston Venture Academy school prior to the start of the race – lots of room in the sports hall, food available in the canteen and toilets available within the school. With the race taking place in mid-August the temperature was warm as expected, what was less expected was the strong winds which made the conditions very challenging for running! Six Jaguars took part with everyone achieving great times in the conditions and Emma Penfold completing her first half marathon. The race was very well marshalled with a nice section running past Somerleyton Hall and it is certainly a race I would like to do again in the future.
