This will be the 22nd year of this unique race taking a course from/to Lowestoft High Street via a route to and along the northern sea wall and returning via the towns historic Scores comprising an up and down total of 13 stepped hills. This is a demanding race, and care needs to be taken over the course of approx 4.75 miles and 401 steps (the Junior race covers approx 1.4 miles and 254 steps). Due to the nature of the Scores, the organisers may have to alter the route advised, although this has not been necessary before.
As last year, team prizes will remain with separate categories for affiliated Clubs and works/social teams. The Junior race will again be open to Juniors from the age of 9.
