Jackdaw 7.5K Run, Honington
Join Run Breckland for the launch of a brand new 7.5K run following footpaths and byways in a loop from Honington and around Troston in Suffolk.
Be among the first runners to experience this brand new running route at its launch, which will be officially opened by the Duke of Grafton.
Whether an experienced distance runner, or a beginner looking for the next step up from a 5k, this run will be a friendly and welcome opportunity for all. Runners will be stopwatch timed. There is no cut off time, so runners can go at their own pace, and all runners will receive a medal at the end.
Volunteer marshals will be based at various checkpoints around the route, and a water station will be available at the half way point. There will be a tail runner/walker following on to make sure everyone returns safely.
Run Breckland are a registered charity that promote healthy recreation by organising running/walking events in the Breckland area.
This new running route has been developed by Suffolk County Council’s Rights of Way and Access Team, to help introduce people to local landscapes and rights of way they may not have visited before. This has been made possible through the Brecks Fen Edge & Rivers Landscape Partnership (BFER), which thanks to the support of the National Heritage Lottery Fund, and players of the National Lottery.
