children’s play equipment.

Fakenham is thrilled to announce that we will be holding these popular road races on Easter Sunday 1st April 2018. This will be part of a Funday which will involve a series of official British Cycling Criterium road races and a Runengland 5k running race, as well as a 1K Fun Run with an Easter Goody bag for children taking part. There will be stalls in the Fakenham Market Place. All runners will get a medal and there will be prizes for winning runners and riders.
A one kilometre circuit through the town centre will be closed to facilitate the event. Race entries are limited so it advised to book early and electronic chip timing (not for the Fun run) so everyone will know their own time. There is a limit of 350 5K runners and 350 1k Fun Runners.

This is intended to be a fun and enjoyable event to take part in or just to come along to watch and cheer people on. It should be an exciting spectacle to watch. There will be commentary for all races broadcast across the market place.
