The Great Yarmouth Promenade 5 Mile Series - Race 2

Date: 08/05/2024

Location: Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth Road Runners are pleased to host once again their Great Yarmouth Promenade Five Mile race series. Race 2 will be held on 8th May 24.

This is a super course to run. There is something incredibly special about racing beside the sea and the route serves a flat, fast, and enjoyable run. The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows and directional cones, as well as being marshalled throughout. Please listen and obey all marshal instructions. There will be a sweep marshal following the last runner to make sure that no one is left on the route. All marshals will remain in place until stood down by the sweep marshal.

The promenade will not be closed to other visitors so there may potentially be other runners, bikers, walkers, and dog walkers along the route. Please keep this in mind and exercise care whilst you are running but our Marshalls will be out in force to keep you safe.

Race starts at 7:15pm

Race Licence: 2024-47476
