More Eco-Friendly for 2020

In our push to become ever more environmentally friendly, this year we will not be providing swim hats and will only issue one race number per competitor. Please bring your own swim hat and a number belt for your race number. Both will be available to purchase on the day if you do not have them. Entry prices are the same as 2019 so competitors who do need to purchase will not be out of pocket.

Here is how we are working towards an eco-friendly event:

2018    – started using compostable cups

2019    – stopped using single use plastics

2020    – no swim hats (many are thrown away after the event)

– single race number (Tyvek numbers are not easily recyclable, also saves safety pins)

– competitors can opt out of their race shirt (we will make a donation to Norfolk Wildlife Trust instead)

Supporting Norfolk Wildlife Trut

Have you got enough run wear? If you prefer we can make a donation to Norfolk Wildlife Trust in place of your souvenir race shirt this year. You will still get your finisher’s medal.

Norfolk Wildlife Trust was founded in 1926 and manages more than fifty nature reserves and other protected sites. It gives conservation advice to individuals and organisations, and provides educational services to young people. To find out more visit their website.
