Report from Joanna:
On Sunday, some of the Otley ladies took a trip down to Norton to do the Norton 9 road race. This was a lovely scenic rural 9 mile run around the countryside in North/South Yorkshire taking in several local villages. The route was flat for the most part, with some undulating & hilly bits, so accommodated all of our preferred running styles & we all did really well! This was the first race for Louise who has recently progressed from couch to 5k to a very impressive 9 mile road race time. Some of us had done the race last year and were pleased to shave off a massive chunk off our 9 mile PBs!! Thankfully, the weather was much kinder – NO EVIL WIND – and running conditions were perfect!
