Lord Mayor's 5k 2017 Race Report

The Lord Mayor's 5km is a challenge for any runner, even the quickest and most experienced one. A five kilometre, two lap course on a very undulating route, with a cut off time of 10 minutes for half way - fail to reach halfway in 10 and you're out of the race.

The event is like no other - the chance to run in a very high quality field of runners with the full crowd support from Norwich's finest residents - its something you have to train hard to be able to run - but the feeling is like no other when you cross the finish line.

A record 21 Road Runners started the race, and luckily all 21 finished!
