Welcome to the Larking Gowen
City of Norwich Half Marathon
29th edition - Sunday 24 November 2013, Norfolk Showground, start 11am
Welcome to the Larking Gowen City of Norwich Half Marathon, organised by the members and friends of City of Norwich AC.
First staged in 1985 by Duke Street Running Club, this race was originally based in the centre of Norwich - hence its name. Then in 1993 it moved to the Norfolk Showground on the western outskirts of the city and it's been there ever since.
The race follows a fast rural two-lap route through the parishes of Easton, Honingham, Colton, Marlingford and the grounds of Easton College. All public roads are closed to through traffic while the race is in progress.
This is a BARR Gold Grade event which over the years has become well-known for fast times, first class organisation and excellent value for money.
With extensive permanent facilities and car parking at the Norfolk Showground, lots of good viewing opportunities, prizes worth over £6,000 for the fleet of foot, chip timing, one of the best medals around and a decent goody bag for every finisher - it all adds up to a great day out for runners and spectators alike.
Registration for this year's race is now open - please click here for more details.
Good luck with your training and we look forward to seeing you on race day at the Norfolk Showground.
