Club news and announcements

  • Supervet Nigel Arnold turned 60 at the weekend, and celebrated by winning the M60 age category at the national sprint duathlon champions at Oulton Park. Fabulous achievement, Nigel!

  • We now have a new venue for Thursday nights training, the Fitness Space on Intwood Road, Cringleford: https://www.thefitnessspace.com/norwich/.  We have been offered the use of the Fitness Space as a meeting point, plus a place to cool down and stretch post run.  There are also shower facilities, lockers and plenty of car parking.  It is also only 1/4 of a mile from Waitrose ( 2 miles from Tesco! ) so you'll still be able to do your shopping as well!

    We'll still be meeting at the usual time  (6:30pm) and we'll still have the usual great sessions (efforts or steady run on alternate weeks) with the usual great people organised by the usually great Les.

  • As ever, our star photographer Ian Edwards has done us proud with a wonderful set of photos following the Gazelles through the day and night of the Round Norfolk Relay. You can see them here.

  • Nigel Bullen has put together a useful guide to how the London Marathon club places ballot works, for those who are interested. Download it from here.
