King’s Lynn GEAR – May the 4th be with you!

GEAR 10K

King’s Lynn town centre will be buzzing on Sunday, 4 May, with over 1800 runners lined up ready to take part in the the 9th annual Bespak Grand East Anglia Run.

At 10.30am on the Tuesday Market Place, runners of all ages and abilities, many of them in colourful costumes, will set off on the fast 10k road race through the historic streets of King’s Lynn.

The Mini GEAR 1.2-mile Fun Run will take place just after the start of the 10k race at approximately 10.35am. So far there are over 750 entrants in just this part of the event!

GEAR 10K 01

The main event is an exact 10-kilometre road race (6.2 miles). The one-lap, traffic-free course takes in the town centre, the River Ouse pathway, the award-winning town centre park (The Walks) and a number of iconic, historical buildings such as the Red Mount, the Custom House and Greyfriars Tower.

The varied and picturesque course will be complemented with musicians and dancers, helping to create a lively atmosphere.

Although the event is not specifically supporting any one charity, many local charities use the race as a way of raising money, and there will be bucket collections on the streets.

The course is ideal for spectators with safety barriers lining the course through the Town Centre, and although road closures will be in effect on the day, many town centre shops and food outlets will be remain open.

The event is organised by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk with the help and support of many local volunteers and organisations.
