Sunday March 1st: Norton 9


The Otley 4 of Hannah Lupton, Joanna Hobson, Sara Richardson and Laura Hind braved the wind on Sunday morning, venturing down to the Norton 9 in the North Yorkshire village of Norton (near Doncaster – South, surely!?)
A circular route around winding lanes, the course was mostly flat with a couple of hills on mile 5, 7 and a sneaky one right at the end. There was a good turnout too and with excellent marshalling, it made for an enjoyable race. Despite the sunshine, the wind added its own special twist, with quite long sections of the race spent running into a headwind so strong that we felt as if we were running backwards!
The winner was Nathaniel Williams (unattached) in 50.03 and first lady was Fiona Davies (Kingstone) in 57.31. Sara was first home for Otley in 81.50, with Laura in 83.52, Joanna 84.32 and Hannah 86.50, all well within our 90 minute target and injury free!
A definite race for the calendar; good for half marathon training.
Did I mention that it was a bit windy?
