General and charity entries for Run Norwich 2018 are now open!
Story added: 18th January 2018
Entry Week is almost upon us. Come 9am on Thursday 25th (or Tuesday 23rd if you’re a charity entrant), you’ll be pitting yourself against thousands of entrants in a race to secure your place before they do.
It can be a tense five minutes as you furiously enter in your details.
Fortunately, our registration providers ACTIVE Network have made lots of improvements to the entry form this year, which should make your entry into the race the smoothest yet.
Here’s what’s new, and of note, on our entry form this year:
We’ve received plenty of fantastic feedback (you guys!) since we launched this year’s snazzy looking official #RN18 t-shirt and vest design, and this year, you can order yours on the race entry form.
Priced at £12, they are available in a range of sizes, and we’ll have your order ready for you to collect at the Expo, prior to race day.
You’ll be asked on entry form if you’d like to have a name on your race number.
We suggest you go for it! It’s free, and spectators can give you a personalised boost on your way round the course.
Keep the name short, as the letters get smaller the more characters there are (Andy, pictured, leads by example!).
We introduced iTab as an option last year, and it was a very popular add-on.
The medal personalisation service is back this year, and here’s how it works:
Simply opt-in to iTab on the entry form (it costs £8 including postage) and after the race, you’ll receive a small personalised metallic tab with your name and your final race chip time in the post. Slot this into the groove that will be on the back of your finisher’s medal, and you’ve got yourself a perfect memento of your efforts!
A mainstay of Run Norwich since we launched in 2015, you’ll be glad to hear our (famous) Golden Ticket competition is back again this year.
As always, if you opt to collect your race pack from the Expo, you’ll be automatically entered into the Golden Ticket competition.
Ten lucky winners will bag themselves a whole host of awesome prizes, plus the chance for their relatives to enjoy the race from the VIP balcony on City Hall.
Even if you decide to not run as an official charity entrant this year, you can still support this year’s race charity, the Community Sports Foundation, through a donation on your entry form.
Any amount is be greatly appreciated, and will support the charity’s work with disabled and disadvantaged individuals across Norfolk!
