Round Norfolk Relay

The Round Norfolk Relay first took place on the weekend of 1st/2nd August 1987 and the idea was to run, near as possible, the Norfolk county boundary.  The whole course has had a few changes over the years, attempting to stay clear of busy roads and various restrictions.  The distance currently stands at 197.2 miles.  This event is strong as ever with over 50 teams from around the country taking part.

The course is broken down into 17 stages, starting and finishing at Lynnsport, Kings Lynn Distances for each leg range from 5.49 to 20.06 miles.  The running under foot  also varies on and off road, especially the coastal legs.  Each runner is escorted during the road sections by a cyclist and, at night, by car.  Night runners must wear high viz vests and cars must display a flashing amber lights for safety.  Escorts also provide essential backup including water, directions and handover timing (thanks to mobile phones), without them this event wouldn’t be possible.

To throw a spanner in the works each team must also predict their finishing time.  The idea is to get all teams over the finishing line around 09:30 Sunday, which means staggered starts.  The first start time is 05:30 Saturday and then at 30 min intervals.  Getting 17 team members together (20 allowing for injuries etc) and each predicting their time shows the sort of planning required.  Finally, since this is a relay, every runner must carry a baton in the palm of the hand (that’s including the 19+ mile legs).
