Voted the best 10k in the United Kingdom by the Running Awards, we think it’s important that you make the very most of your Run Norwich experience.
An amazing 41% of runners will be taking on the course as debutants; with 17% running a 10k race for the first time ever. Whether you are running for the very first time or looking to hit a new Personal Best, as the Official Retail Sponsor, Jarrold Sport have some handy hints to help when Run Norwich returns on Sunday 17 July.
Take it away, Jarrold…
Neutral or overpronator? Understanding your foot type can seem overwhelming, however knowing how your feet move whilst running is important to avoid unnecessary aches and pains.
A complimentary gait analysis with Jarrold Sport will identify your running style by recording how your feet land as you run. This footage allows our experts to analyse your unique gait and find the right type of running shoe to support you.

At just over 6 miles, your feet and knees will be subject to lots of high impact, so it is important to wear shoes specifically designed to absorb this. Constructed for stability and to reduce the risk of injuries, as well as provide comfort and proper cushioning to your foot, our experts can guide you through our range running shoes, including leading brands ASICS, Brooks, ON and Saucony.
Although headphones are prohibited whilst running the race, bone conduction devices like Aftershockz can be worn. This is because they allow you to enjoy your music and remain alert to your surroundings through the toughest points of the race, like the challenging incline of Rose Lane, which can instead be powered through with a motivational playlist.
Although the Great British Summer can be unpredictable, Run Norwich can quickly heat up. Keep your cool as you clock up the miles with lightweight, breathable clothing. And don’t forget your sun cream!
There are a lot of steps between you and that end-of-race snack, looking after your nutrition before and during the race is important. As a 10K is considered a shorter race, you won’t need a large carb-load the day before, but a healthy breakfast such as a bowl of porridge for slow-release energy is essential! For an extra boost, an en-route Energizer Gel can help deliver energy fast, helping you dig deep towards the finish line.
