Suffolk Running Centre - 2019

Monday 28th December



Social distancing policy in place    -      Limited places  
Rules are changing fairly rapidly as we come out of lockdown  so we will adjust our events as necessary. But please be assured that we will be cautious before increasing numbers and will continue to keep your safety as our number one priority


Following the success of our events post-covid  we are very happy to continue to offer our events on the first weekend of every month.  

3 Days     Mon 28th, Tues 29th and Wed 30th December
3 Distances     Marathon and Half Marathon and Ultra Marathon (40miles)
3 Routes    28th  --   Risby an out and back  trail and road
                    29th  --   Kirtling all road measured marathon /  Windmill Way mostly road half marathon
                    30th --  Dalham Kiln  lots of trail

Will vary.    This event will be updated as routes are decided , we will try to do this well in advance but we use rural routes which sometimes need to be changed due to local circumstances.                                                        

Another chance to get a medal to add to the 'Routes' collection.  Collect 10 and get a centre piece.
