Run Norwich 2017 Race Report

Run Norwich 10k 2017 is now one of the most anticipated races in the Norfolk calendar. And as Norwich's premier race, it attracts more than 6,000 entrants, and most of the club as well.

The opportunity to run a 10k around the centre of Norwich, traffic free, is too much to ignore for us Road Runners. And we descended on the race in our largest number ever. Last year we had 142 road runners, and wondered if we could beat it this year and remain the largest club. Not only did we beat it, we smashed through it, with an incredible 163 registered club members running.

The course can be incredibly deceptive... a fast first 5km consisting of flat sections and a nice downhill section, around Chapelfield Gardens, St Stephens, Red Lion Street and Castle Meadow, down King Street to Carrow Road and through Riverside. Then... Rose Lane. A rather nice little hill to climb up. After that, Riverside Road and the Cathedral provide some nice flat running until you have to run up Tombland, Bank Plain and Castle Meadow again to the finish. The short sprint up to The Forum, along Rampant Horse Street, can also catch people out if it isn't expected.

Also, anyone who thinks Norwich is flat can think again... running up Rose Lane is proof it isn't.
