Breckland Forest Marathon

You can choose to run a half or a full marathon on this mainly off-road course through the forest in Breckland.  Meeting from 8am at the BTO, The Nunnery, Thetford, Norfolk, IP24 2PU ready for a 9am start.  Please note, car parking at the BTO was allocated on a first come, first served basis and is now full.  Please therefore allow sufficient time to park at Barnham Cross Common, Bury Road (A134) which is approx half a mile away.

There will be a unique, quality medal for all finishers and, as well as volunteer marshals at various checkpoints, we will also have two-way radio operators and first aiders on duty (just in case!).  Checkpoints will have drinks and snacks.

The event will be stopwatch timed across a fairly flat terrain, with no cut off time.

Price: 25 for full marathon, 20 for half (plus booking fees).

This event has been registered with the 100 Marathon Club.

Proceeds will be donated to the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology), an independent charitable research institute, to help them with the important work they do on our behalf, looking out for Britain's birds, plus other local charities.
