The coordination of road running and road races licensed by UKA and ARC in the county of Norfolk is delegated by Athletics Norfolk to the Athletics Norfolk Road Running Committee (ANRRC).

The ANRRC comprises representatives of the various running and athletic clubs currently affiliated to Athletics Norfolk.

The aims of the ANRRC include:

  • coordinating & maintaining the annual Norfolk Road Race Fixture List - the latest version of the 2017 list is here
  • reviewing & learning from technical reports from recent road races staged by affiliated clubs in the county
  • sharing matters of good practice and joint interest
  • coordinating & managing the Leathes Prior Grand Prix Series
  • overseeing the Norfolk County Championship races at five distances - 5k, 10k, 10 miles, half marathon and marathon
  • awarding the annual Norfolk Road Runner of the Year trophies
  • acting as a "godparent" to the Round Norfolk Relay - a 195 mile relay race of 17 stages which takes place each September
  • coordinating the use of its own LED race clock and finish gantry

We meet three times a year; our dates for 2017 are 15 March, 12 July and 15 November (AGM). Please click here to view the minutes of our last three meetings.

At the July meeting each year, the process of compiling next year's fixture list begins. This gives affiliated clubs four months to discuss and hopefully resolve any unhelpful fixture clashes before next year's fixture list is finalised at the November meeting.

The four events to be designated as Norfolk County Championship races (distances are 5k, 10k, 10 miles and half marathon) and the ten events to be included in the  Leathes Prior Grand Prix Series for the forthcoming year are all decided at the November meeting. The Norfolk County Marathon Championship is a postal event.

The latest version of the Norfolk Road Race Fixture List for 2017 is here - it includes races organised by clubs affiliated to Athletics Norfolk and other fixtures at our discretion.

The ANRRC's LED race clock - and gantry if required - may be hired by organisations not affiliated to Athletics Norfolk, subject to availability. The hire fee is £50 per event - please click here for further details. 

Officers elected to serve the ANRRC for 2017 are:
