Race organiser Nick Gurney said: 'It was wonderful to see all 360 runners take part in the Broadland Half Marathon. The event is a highlight in the Norfolk Running Calendar, and is well supported by runners. The weather conditions were perfect, about 10 degrees and with no wind, powering many runners to personal bests over a half marathon distance. The support from members of the Norwich Road Runners, other clubs, and the local community, was fantastic.'

Around £500 was also raised from the sale of cakes and refreshments. This will be donated to The Big C charity in memory of member Mark Ring, who passed away in November last year.
