Thetford Trails Summer Series

Thetford Forest, Norfolk
C-19 PLAN
Inspire Race has provided covid-19 safety information for this event.

Organiser's Description

Make the most of those long summer evenings, and join runners who are leaving the tarmac and traffic behind and hitting the beautiful trails of Thetford Forest. The 10km run takes them through the forest, along winding trails on great quality tracks. This atmospheric location, with its tall pines, brings each runner a little closer to nature. There's also a chance to share the experience with your canine friend; the 10km Canicross starts after the main race.

The race starts and finishes at High Lodge, which is a recreational site set in the heart of Thetford Forest offering extensive play areas, walking and cycling trails. There's a café, bike hire, as well as additional attractions for the whole family to enjoy.

If you're a park runner, these runs are the perfect way to challenge yourself. Chip timing and 5km split results are provided for each event so that runners can monitor their improvement across each race. Headphones are allowed.

We're working hard to reduce, reuse and recycle so please help us keep this event plastic-free!

Since the lockdown restrictions were eased at the beginning of August, we have implemented a number of strategies to ensure your safety and wellbeing, whilst continuing to offer high quality and value for money sporting events for you to enjoy.

Given the changes in some restrictions that came into place on Monday, we would like to take the opportunity to remind you that we will continue to arrange events in line with guidance from The Government, UK Athletics, British Triathlon and British Cycling.

In response to these guidelines, we have implemented and been adhering to the following measures at all of our current sporting events:

A limit on the number of available spaces
Required Pre-registration - with no registration available “on the day”.
Staggered wave starts with 15 minutes between each wave
No water tables or stops are provided – please ensure you bring your own drinking water
Sanitisation stations – available in the race village for your use
Race medals and mementos are posted out to everyone following the event
Two Meter Social Distancing measures are kept to in the race village and while out on the course route at all times
No spectators at the events or in the race village

We will endeavour to continue offering a regular programme of events as we have since restrictions were eased and do our very best to limit any disruptions to our calendar through cancellations. We are also continually looking forward to 2021 and being able to return to our normal events calendar whenever we can.
