Location: Sandringham Estate
Run Sandringham looks forward to welcoming hundreds of runners of all abilities and ages to Sandringham Estate, for a 24 hour trail running relay event.
Taking place on 10-11 August 2024, and a major event in the East Anglian running calendar, Run Sandringham 24 will attract a large field of runners of all abilities to the Winter retreat of the Royal Family, to run a 24 Hour Race around the Royal Sandringham Estate and surrounding trails, while raising thousands of pounds for good causes.
With a Start/Finish and large Event village with camping and facilities within the Sandringham Estate, the event boasts a super scenic route with stunning views of the Royal Estate, Norfolk Countryside, and Royal Parkland.
A huge army of volunteers will make this superb event possible over the 3 day period. Volunteering is extremely rewarding and you don’t need any previous experience to take part.

The race will start and finish within the Sandringham Estate, and take in the stunning countryside views of Sandringham, and the Royal Parkland. The course will be marshalled and clearly signposted. Unfortunately due to the nature of the route, no pets, wheelchairs or prams are able to be used within the race.
The Event Village will be open from 12:00pm on Friday. Further details regarding race packs will be made available nearer the event, and you will need to line up in the queue designated by your surname. Runners MUST write their name, any medical condition, emergency contact name and contact number on reverse of their race number where requested.
The course is mainly on the trails through the parkland and surrounding the estate. Although the race route follows along some roads, they are not closed to traffic. The trail is also narrow in some places. Please follow all signage and Marshal’s directions at all times and keep to the left unless instructed otherwise.
There is a time limit of the course being open for 25 hours from Midday Saturday – all laps must be completed by 1.00PM on Sunday.
Medical teams will be present onsite - if you feel pain, experience dizziness or any other symptoms immediately stop running and seek help from a marshal, who can radio through for medical assistance.
There will be a water station out on the course at approximately 2.5 miles. Run Sandringham is a sustainable plastic free event - so please bring refillable bottles where possible, and we can refill these at the designated water stations on route.
Bone conducting headphones though are permitted – so long as you can still hear marshal instructions clearly.
Appropriate footwear should be worn. The routes are a mix of road and trail.
