5km and 10km

5 Jul 2020

New race for 2020! We are delighted to be working with Norfolk Archaeological Trust to bring this fantastic route around Caistor Roman Town, near Norwich. You have a choice of distance, opting either for 10km or 5km.

The name, and the design of the meda, links into the historical nature of Caistor Roman Town. Known by the Romans as ‘the market of the Iceni' (Venta Icenorum) ', the Roman fortifications can be seen in several places.

We bring you a stunning route around the open countryside surrounding the site of the Roman Town, for some of the way you will follow the river Tas as it meanders its way along the valley. There is a small climb but the reward is stunning views of the whole area. The 5km is a single loop and two for the 10km.

The route will be marked and marshalled throughout.

The event will be limited to 500 runners.

Part of the entry fee will be going to Norfolk Archaeological Trust.
