Join us for the return of our Little Lifts Trail Run Event.

We are so excited to be hosting this amazing event on trails that have rarely been run before, set in the beautiful North Norfolk countryside.

Take on the Trail Run for Little Lifts and help us support more people with breast cancer.

Little Lifts provides the most thoughtfully curated Boxes filled with products to help with emotional and practical support, through chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for breast cancer. Why not raise funds to help us on our mission to provide everyone diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK with a Box?

Run either a 10k, 20k or 30k distance. All three routes are single laps and are staggered starts. 

A fundraising page will be set up automatically once you have entered and which you can make edits to if you wish. For every £20 raised your funds will fill a Radiotherapy Box with products and for every £40 raised you will fill a Chemotherapy Box with products. We encourage you to use this opportunity to make a difference and support more people receiving treatment for breast cancer, however fundraising is optional. We appreciate your support and cannot wait to see you at the event!

This event has been made possible by our title sponsors Loveday & Partners and Rogers & Norton meaning that all proceeds raised will go directly to our small but mighty charity. In addition, the incredible support from Norfolk Cordial and permission from Mr and Mrs Courtauld of Barningham Estate and other generous local land owners. A HUGE thank you!

Facilities include: Bag drop, free parking, first aid, water stations on the course, toilets, photographer, chip timing, guided warm up, prizes, gifts for all finishers, refreshments for sale, staggered start and spectators welcome

Course Details:

The race begins and ends within the normally private Barningham Estate, and all three courses will traverse across beautiful North Norfolk countryside. The courses are predominantly off-road on grass, farm track, gravel track and private road. Runners will have to cross over a number of quiet country lanes and there are some short stretches along these quiet roads, but these have been kept to an absolute minimum.

The courses are beautifully varied in their terrain. All routes are undulating with some short inclines and declines, narrow sections, woodland tracks and paths across wide open countryside. All three routes share parts of the course, but will also split and meet up along the way. The entire course will be signposted and where possible marshals will be positioned to help direct runners. However, runners will be expected to stay focussed and look out for the markers along the route. A GPX File and map of the run route will be shared before the event.

Race rules:

Minimum age is 15 on the day of the race for the 10km, and 17 on the day of the race for the 20k and 30k.

Runners to write their name, any medical conditions, emergency contact name and contact number on reverse of their race number.

Numbers must be visible whilst racing – please provide your own safety pins to secure the race number to your clothing.

No pets allowed. There will be sheep in the parkland and any dog owner who brings their dog will be asked to put them immediately back in their car so please leave your pets at home.

Regrettably, the courses are not suitable for wheelchairs or prams.

Although the race route crosses and follows quiet roads for some short sections, they are NOT CLOSED from traffic and are narrow. Please follow Marshal’s directions at all times and keep to the left!

Do not litter the course. Bins will be provided at the start/finish and at water stations.

All runners must stay on the marked course. Do not run across crops and farmland unless instructed or signed to do so.

For safety reasons we ask runners not to run with headphones.

Parts of the course are remote. We advise all runners to run with a phone or other form of communication in case of emergency. If you have not already done so, please download the what.three.words app and familiarise yourself with how it works. A GPX File and map of the run route will be shared before the event.

Entries are non-refundable. If you are unable to run on the day, transfers are available until midnight on 07/04/24, 14 days before the race. After this date, PLEASE DO NOT pass your race number to someone else. If you dont have anyone to take your place, please let us know and we can offer to our waiting list.
