The Broadland Half Marathon is the Norwich Road Runners' premier race, and is an early highlight in the Norfolk Race Calendar. Attracting a large field of both fast club runners and new runners looking to try a distance race, the beautiful 13.1 mile course takes runners through the Norfolk Countryside. The race is very popular and usually sells out very quickly - the 2017 race sold out in 5 weeks.
