Round Norfolk Relay

Round Norfolk Relay 2018

It is that time of the year again when we need to start preparing for our entry in the Round Norfolk Relay. This year the race falls over the weekend of the 15th-16th September. It will be our 20th year at the event. Please put this date in your diaries!

For the uninitiated, the Round Norfolk Relay is a 17-stage race (requiring 17 runners) covering a total of 197.93 miles. The race attracts over 60 clubs from around the country. The stages vary in distance from 5.49 miles up to 19.67 miles and are run around the clock. Last year we managed to complete the course in a very respectable 23 hours, 02 minutes and 35seconds (average 6 min. 59 seconds per mile).

We are entering the ‘Club’ Category which requires at least 5 females and, without condition to gender, 6 masters (men over 40 and women over 35 on race day).

As always, we are trying to field the strongest team possible and the target will be to beat our own club record of 21hours 18minutes and 5 seconds.

We have the team in place for this year’s race but if you are interested in running or helping (i.e. with driving the mini-bus, driving support vehicles, cycling alongside the runners etc) for the 2019 race, please speak to me or speak with David Sampson at training. Dave will also answer any of your questions generally about the race.

This race really is a unique experience for the runners and helpers involved and it is quite aptly billed as ‘the ultimate cub challenge’.  Full race details can be found on the following website:  www.roundnorfolkrelay.com
