The Race

Run Norwich is a 10-kilometre road race, organised by the Norwich City FC Community Sports Foundation (CSF), that takes place in the heart of Norwich’s beautiful and historic city centre.

The route passes some of the city’s most iconic landmarks including Norwich Castle, The Forum, Norwich Cathedral, and many more.

The inaugural event took place in 2015, and since then thousands of runners have taken to the city centre streets for the annual race.

Close to 5,000 runners took part in Run Norwich 2017, which took place on Sunday 6th August.

Run Norwich 2018 will take place on Sunday 5th August. General entry places have sold out, but you can enter as a charity runner here.

Our course has been designed to create a unique experience in Norwich for runners and spectators, with music and entertainment at the start and along the route.

The race is for runners of all abilities, so whatever your level of experience, we welcome your entry.

One of our key aims is to support local causes and, in addition to CSF, we encourage runners to fundraise for our chosen partner charities which over the years have included Nelson’s Journey, Big C, SERV Norfolk and many more.

The race charity for the 2018 edition of the race is the Community Sports Foundation, and you enter for FREE on their behalf now.

Run Norwich has been made possible thanks to the partnership work of our race operations board, including these key organisations:

"Everyone was made most welcome; the organisation was superb and probably the best organised event I've ever attended (and over the years I've attended a few)."
