Run Sandringham Half Marathon 2024

Royal Flush In Norfolk

Royal Estate hosts a thousand runners in Run Sandringham...

The Sandringham Estate in Norfolk has been linked to the British Monarchy since 1862 and remains the private country winter retreat for their majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla. Sandringham House stands on a 20,000-acre estate in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, much of which is open to the public, and provides a wonderful venue for running events.

The Run Sandringham 2024 series of events welcome thousands of runners of all abilities and ages to the Royal Estate to run a Half Marathon or Community Mile on 16 June; run as far as they like in 24 Hours on 9-11 August, and run 10K or 5K on 29 September 2024 – all while raising thousands of pounds for good causes.

The series started on Sunday 16 June with just under 1,000 competitors in the fourth Run Sandringham Half Marathon – with 959 finishers in 3:56:07 – organised by Good Running Events. The course (pictured below) takes in some of the best scenery on the Estate including Sandringham House and the stunning woodland paths throughout the Royal Park.

The pace was set by Martyn Bath, of Norwich Road Runners, who completed the undulating multi-terrain course in a cracking 1:15:24, finishing almost three minutes clear of the pack. The runners-up were M45 Broan Corleys (Bushfield Joggers, 1:18:14) and William Tucker (Newark AC, 1:19:01).

Best of the women was Best Athletics member Sophia Tucker (1:32:58) who was joined on the podium by Rosie Mead (Huntingdonshire AC, 1:37:51) and Charli Smith (unattached, 1:39:47).

The day concluded with the popular Sandringham Community Mile for anyone over 4 years. Finishers in both events enjoyed a goody bag, an exclusive medal, professional event photography, and wonderful memories of a fantastic day in the Sandringham Royal Estate.
 
Good Running Events now look forward to the AEPG Great Eastern Run in Peterborough on 13 October, the Duxford Dash 10K on 20 October, and the Larking Gowen Norwich Half Marathon on 24 November 2024 - click here for further details.
