North Norfolk Beach Runners are excited to host the 33rd edition of the Worstead 5 mile race!  The Worstead ‘5’ is a popular event suitable for all, and set on undulating local roads.  We like the course so much, we also use it for our Club Handicap 5 mile race each year! 

Places will be limited as there are a number of entrants with places already from the 2020 edition which we were unable to hold in person.

The race starts at 7pm in the Village square taking you out on country lanes for a mile before turning towards Sloley where you complete a loop before heading back to the Village square for cheering crowds and the finish line.  You can also expect good support from the local residents from the surrounding area on your way around the course.  Please be aware that although the race follows quiet roads, they are not closed to traffic.
