RAF Marham Running Club

Road Running and Cross Country Club
RAF Marham has an active running club, with many races taking place throughout the year, consisting of winter cross country and a summer road racing league. Runners and joggers of all standards (from plodders to racing snakes) are very welcome to join in. We are a group of like minded runners of all abilities who compete in various races all year round. The aim of the club is to promote running and fitness for Service personnel.

The main competitions in which the club gets involved are the Lincolnshire Services Summer Road Race Series and, in Winter, the East Anglia Cross Country League. Royal Air Force Marham takes its turn to host at least one of the races in each league. Most of the races are usually about 10k (6 miles) and all cater for any standard of runner. In addition to this the club also enters all of the Royal Air Force's annual classic races (Benson 7, Henlow 10, Halton Hills etc) and other civilian organized local races.

Race Diary
The RAF Marham Running Club competes in various races throughout the year, primarily in two distinct leagues.

During the summer months, the club takes part in the Lincolnshire Services Summer Road Racing League (LSSRRL). The league runs from May until September, and all races are flat and fast, and of varying length. The average course length is approximately 10km (6 miles).

During the winter months, the focus turns towards cross-country events. The club participates in the civilian East Anglian Cross-Country League (EACCL), which sees races the whole length and breadth of the county. Races in this league can vary between venues, but are typically between 5km and 10km (3 to 6 miles).

Membership of the club is FREE and the main people to contact can be located through the Gym on Ext 7094
