On Sunday, July 28, Thetford is set to host the Iceni 10k run starting at the Guildhall at 9.30am with a route around the town before finishing back at the hall.

Organisers have apologised that the run cannot be held on Norfolk Day, Saturday, July 27, as it would clash with the current Thetford Parkrun.

But during the following day’s run special Norfolk Day 10k medals are being created with the county crest on it as well as T-shirts.

Entries are reminded that the 10k can be completed by walking, running or even crawling.

Last year thousands of people across the county enjoyed more than 300 community events, threw parties, hosted get-togethers and took the opportunity to celebrate what a wonderful place Norfolk is.
