This year the Turkey Trot is proud to hose the SCAA 2018 County Champiionships.
The 2017 Turkey Trot, kindly sponsored by Galloper Wind Farm Ltd, will place on Sunday 10th December, starting at 11am at the Beccles Sports Centre, Ringsfield Road. The Turkey Trot is an undulating 10 mile road race visiting small villages on the edge of the Waveney Valley.
There will be a prize for best fancy dress, as well as festive fayre for all finishers. Please ensure that fancy dress is appropriate for the conditions – absorbent materials can cause hypothermia if the weather is cold or wet.
Named after Bert Tarpley, one of the earliest Pacer members and former club President, this event is very much part of the local race calendar. The course passes through beautiful countryside and is run along gently undulating country lanes.
This event is run over two distances, 10 miles and 20 miles, and the latter fits perfectly into the training calendar for a spring Marathon. Each junction is marshaled and the course is well signed. Please note the roads are lightly used but are not traffic-free so keep left at all times.
Finally, there will be a cut-off time of four hours from the start of the 20m race. This means there will be no marshals or support vehicles from 2.30pm.
20 mile race starts: 10.30am
10 mile race starts: 11.30am
