Cheering on the runners? Here's all you need to know about Sunday's event

Run Norwich is back and we can’t wait to see you all on Sunday 16th of July.

Another sell-out field will be taking on the 10-kilometre course this year through our beautiful city centre. Over 1400 runners will be tackling a 10k for the first time and we’d love for you to help create a fantastic atmosphere for them, and the rest of the field for that matter!

We’ve compiled a quick guide for the tens of thousands of spectators expected to line the streets, balconies and windows of Norwich’s city centre below:

Key timings

08.00am – Race Village & baggage trailers open

08.30am – Start pens open

Best viewing points

With 10-kilometres of route to catch the action from, there’s plenty of choice. For the best atmosphere and experience, we’ve detailed some of our recommended viewing spots:

The Race Village

Once you are all done cheering on the runners, head on over to the Race Village at Chapelfield Gardens to join the runners and soak up the post-race atmosphere. Expect music and a number of food and drink vendors.  The winners will be presented with their trophies on the main bandstand at 11.00am.
