Broadland: The Marriott’s Way 10k is back

James Francis CEO Saffron Housing Trust with Vice Chairman Cllr John Fisher -

The popular event taking place in person once again, following last year’s virtual race due to the pandemic.

Sponsored by Saffron Housing, the race will bring runners together on 3 October, 2021, starting in Aylsham and travelling along Marriott’s Way, before ending in Reepham marketplace with a lively celebration from spectators (restrictions allowing).

Vice Chairman Cllr John Fisher, said:

“We are delighted that our Marriott’s Way 10k can take place as normal this year. It has always been such a fantastic event and I look forward to residents joining in, cheering on participants as they complete the course, as they always do.”

James Francis, CEO of Saffron Housing Trust, added:

“We are delighted to be working with Broadland District Council by sponsoring such a great, local event that will see lots of people get on their running shoes. The pandemic has demonstrated keeping active is not only good for your physical health but also your mental wellbeing, and the Marriott’s Way 10k race is a great opportunity to challenge yourself, achieve something fantastic and contribute to a wonderful event.”

This will be the 13th year the race has been held. The run is suitable for all abilities and raises money for Norfolk Trails, a charity that maintains the 26-mile long Marriott’s Way footpath, cycle route and bridle way.
