If you’re after a fun fitness challenge in the picturesque setting of an historic Norfolk market town, then this one’s for you.

Each year 3000 runners gather in King’s Lynn to take part in the Grand East Anglia Run (GEAR) 10K.

The wonderfully scenic route takes in the pretty town centre, River Ouse pathway and The Walks. Runners also pass famous landmarks such as the Custom House, Red Mount and Greyfriars Tower along the way.

The course is flat and suitable for all, making the event enormously popular. In fact, this event sold out in both 2017 and 2018. So if you want to get a fun, friendly and fantastic Spring event in your running diary, book your place now!
