The Holt 10k, hosted by North Norfolk Beach Runners, is the 6th grand prix event of the year. This is traditionally an autumn race but has now switched to a late spring fixture.

Set in the wonderful grounds of Gresham school in Holt, 11 Great Yarmouth Road Runners took on this undulating, multi terrain 10k.

The weather was humid with a slight warm breeze. It started off in the school field and took to the open roads of Holt. A left turn after 2 miles took you onto an off-road gravel path before joining the tarmac once again. At the halfway point runners were met with a welcome drinks station, even if was only used to pour water over our faces. A sharp left turn saw runners heading back towards Gresham. And the welcome finish line.
