Run for Cake at the Lake

What is it?

This is a social run with a staggered start so that everyone can finish more or less together and then we can have some cake, a cuppa and chat. We will provide the tea and coffee, so if you can please bring along some cakes to share, that would be great!

We will start the stop watch at 9am and aim for everyone to finish at 10.20am. You will start on the minute closest to your expected run time. For example, if you 5km run time is 30 mins you would start at 9.50am or if your 10km run time is 50mins you would start at 9.30am.
You can run in small groups or on your own depending on who else is about and what they expect to run. If you are unsure of the course then shout up and I’m sure someone will gladly run with you.

Our distances are 3.5k around the lake or 5k and 10k based upon the Norwich Tri run course.  We’d rather people were cautious on their predictions so finished slightly ahead of time, rather than finished way behind their time. This enables our volunteers to join in on the cake action!

If you wish to participate you will need to book for this event via the TA training page as we are only allowed to host a group of 30 people.

We need help to run this event! 

Assistance is needed with timekeeping, starting runners, capturing names at the finish, opening and closing the gate into the picnic meadow.

Cost: Free.  But cake donations gladly accepted for afterwards.

Please park in the Country Park’s car parks, the revenue from the car parks pays for the up keep of the park that we use.  As Tri-Anglia members we get a significant discount on annual parking permits. Application for parking permits.

2021 Handicap Challenge

  • If you want to run the Handicap in person this event will take place on the first Sunday of every month from November at Whitlingham Country Park. You must sign up for this event on the Training Events web page. We are hosting a maximum of 30 runners. Please read the small print carefully! Stopwatches will start at 9am for a staggered start, with the event scheduled to finish at 10.20am, so if you run 5k in 30 minutes please be ready to start at 9.50am, 10k in 60 minutes be ready to start at 9:20am. Please over estimate your time so that we aren’t waiting for you past 10:20am, volunteers would like a coffee too! Times will be collected by a timekeeper when you finish this event
  • If you want to run the Handicap virtually, this event will run from 1 to 7 of every month from June until September. Please be consistent in your route choices! Please post your times to the FB event page or via email to virtualevents@tri-anglia.co.uk If you post them anywhere else, they may not be picked up and counted.
  • If you would like to pick up some brownie points, you can volunteer for the in person Handicap and then run the event virtually at some point during 1st to 7th of each month. If you can volunteer I need a starter/name collector, timekeeper and a marshall to put out arrows. Please contact me if you are able to volunteer. Many hands, light work.
