Luckily we managed to avoid the rain for the first in the series of this year’s Nelson Knee Nobbler races, the first at Caister on Sea. It was cold waiting around at the start but lots of fun watching the very noisy canicross get under way! Shortly after this was the start for the 3 Jags taking part – James Lambert and Nicola Lambert-John doing the 10k and Jackie Gooch opting for the 5k on the day. The race brief said the first 5k was the hardest and that was very true. A couple of miles were deep soft sand and the third mile was this plus a strong head wind. The second half of the race was across the dunes heading towards Great Yarmouth, before turning back and running along the water’s edge. A hard but fun course with supportive marshals and relaxed atmosphere.
