Round Norfolk Relay 2016

FRR have the opportunity to compete in the Round Norfolk Relay (RNR) this year for the tenth year in a row. If there is enough interest I will enter a team for the relay then we will sort out the details during the summer.

The RNR is the longest non-stop relay in the UK and takes in the whole of the perimeter of Norfolk 194miles. It is split into 17 different stages with distances from 5.5 miles up to 20 miles. It begins early on the Saturday morning (17th September) and completes on Sunday morning (18th September). It’s a really friendly event and all abilities run, we try to balance the slower runners with the quicker runners to finish in about 28.5 hours, quickest teams finish in about 21 hours. Although its very much a team event all legs are effectively timed mini races, all runners have a support car or bike with them on all roads.

At this stage I would like to get a level of interest, for those of you that have done it before and would like to do it again and those that have not done it but are up for a go please let me know. At the moment I am only looking for interest, no commitment, I will then confirm our entry assuming there is enough interest. Need to make sure we have enough interest to cover all legs but in particular the long night-time legs so if you want to run 20miles at midnight from Scole to Thetford this will be for you. Take a look at the details below and the website.
