Round Norfolk Relay

Well done to everyone taking part in the Round Norfolk Relay 2019.  Despite one or two navigational mishaps, our team finished within about 20 minutes of their predicted time.

For those not familiar with this legendary event, here’s a quick overview.

The event starts in King’s Lynn at 5:30 am on a Saturday in September, and finishes around 10am on Sunday morning with each team having run round the perimeter of Norfolk (mostly on road in the later stages, but there’s plenty of challenging off road sections for the first few runners).  Upto 60 teams take part.  There are 17 legs in the relay – the logistics of getting people to and from their leg is a challenge in itself.

For many years, Jane & Al Scoffham were the Metros organisers.  Chris Shearwood and Mike Morris took the lead this year assisted by Teresa and Dave Young on timekeeping.  Here’s the 2019 runners.  If you want to be part of the RNR What’s App group, contact Mike.
