Registration is now open for the 11th annual Marriott’s Way 10K on 6th October 2019, organised sponsored by D & F McCarthy.
Registration is now open for the 11th annual Marriott’s Way 10K, organised by Broadland District Council, and sponsored by D & F McCarthy.
The popular running race starts in Aylsham and travels along the iconic Marriott’s Way ending in Reepham marketplace with a lively celebration from local people and spectators as well as various stalls and activities.
The run is limited to 500 places and previous years have sold out so make sure you book your place fast! If you don’t register in time there is a waiting list, so you could still have a chance of making it into the race.
The route is almost entirely off road, but is suitable for all abilities and has proved popular with those trying a 10K race for the first time.
Advanced entries for the race are £15 for affiliated runners and £17 for non-affiliated runners.
After listening to feedback from runners last year, it is clear that improving the sustainability of the race is something that is increasingly important to runners and the organising team. This year Broadland District Council are trialling further improvements to the run to try and reduce the amount of plastic and paper waste – particularly at the finishing area.
This will also be the third year of the Marriott’s Way Children’s Fun Run, where kids aged four to sixteen can run a mile of Marriott’s Way dressed up in their favourite fancy dress costume.
Not only do the kids get a chance to show off their costume and stretch their legs, they also have a chance to win the fancy dress prize. Each child will also receive a medal and voucher from the fun run sponsor, Bure Valley Railway.
Councillor Jo Copplestone said:
“We are very proud to be holding the Marriott’s Way 10k for the 11th year. This is a fantastic event for people of all abilities, and always attracts runners not only from Broadland, but from all over Norfolk and beyond. The Fun Run is also excellent fun and a great way to get children into running.”
The fun run also starts in Aylsham so it’s a great chance for parents running in the 10K to get the kids involved - and even do a warm up run themselves!
