Breckland Forest Marathon 2017, 2018 and 2019, Norfolk
runbreckland [at] btinternet.com (subject: Breckland%20Forest%20Marathon) (Run Breckland) organised the Breckland Forest Marathon, on the same day as the London Marathon, in 2017, 2018 and 2019 for those wishing for a more tranquil event. Starting from BTO's HQ in Thetford, Norfolk, runners could choose to run a full or half marathon through areas of Thetford Forest. In both years the event was a great success with profits from the event supporting BTO's work. The event has now outgrown the premises due to number of runners but will run in future years.
