The 2023 Round Norfolk Relay took place on the weekend of 16/17 September. The route for this race is the perimeter of Norfolk which is almost 200 miles.

Once the team starts they continue running through the day and the night until they are back to the start in Kings Lynn.

Cambs Times:

Two of the 59 teams entered were from March Athletics Club. Each team consists of 17 runners and a support crew of drivers, timekeepers, cyclists and supporters so is an all-inclusive event.

Records were smashed with five runners beating club records and Andrew Jakeman not only taking 20 minutes off the club record for Stage 9, which sees competitors running through Great Yarmouth late in the night, he also now holds the record for the fastest time recorded for the event.

Cambs Times:

There was disappointment for those competitors due to run Stage 14 as this stage needed to be cancelled very early in the morning due to roads being closed as the shop in Feltwell had been ram raided at 2.30am and the roads used by the runners were closed.

Unperturbed support crews collected their runners and the baton and moved on to the start of Stage 15 at Wissington to carry on with the competition.

This should have been Jo Edwards first attempt at the event so it was particularly disappointing for her after getting up very early to make her way to Feltwell for a 4:30am Stage start time only to find out she would not be running after all.
