"A huge thank you to you and the team for a great day.

The route marking was spot on, the food and drink brill and such an great atmosphere at the end.

My homing instinct carried on even after I finished; until, in fact I was back in Stow soaking in a hot bath!

All the best,
Jakki

Jakki Bury to Clare 2019

"Thank for for an awesome day out today at the Norfolk 100. Fabulous route- even the miserably hard bits had good things about them! Truly wonderful volunteers at every aid station as well as at registration & the finish. And I ran with some amazing and inspirational people today. Oh yes, and I saw so many acts of kindness and camaraderie between runners.
It was a privilege to be a part of this race and my life has been made so much richer for it. Thank you so much."
