Welcome to the Norfolk Gazelles
We are a friendly road running club based in Norwich, Norfolk. We welcome all standards and ages.
Our aim is to help you be the best runner you can be, through coaching encouragement and support.
Due to COVID restrictions our training is changing regularly to comply with latest regulations. We train as a COVID secure group and ask that anyone attending abides by latest regulations. At present due to limited numbers, we are only allowing members to attend sessions and book places in advance. Details of the sessions are on our training sessions page.
If you decide to join us, you'll find the details on our membership page.
Due to the current situation we are unable to offer potential new members trial sessions. This is due to contact tracing, due dilegence and the limited spaces avalible on each session. Over time and as goverment restrictions relax we will offer trial sessions again. Thank you for your understanding.

Championship Relay, 11th October 2020
Sadly we've had to cancel this years Championship Relay. We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 event.
Last year's inaugural event was a great success and we hope this year will be even better. The event will open for entries via active.com in June.
The race will follow a route out of Easton College looping round Hall Road and then into Marlingford Road. A left turn at the Marlingford Bell will bring you along Bawburgh Road, which will then loop round back into the college.
Strava route here:
The race is planned to start at 09:30. Distance will be 4 x 5km.

Chip Timing: We will have chip timing for the race managed by Chip Timing UK. Every runner will end up with an individual 5km Chip Timing in additional to the total time for each team. Affiliated teams must have all members affiliated to qualify.

We are hoping that this event will also be a Norfolk County event and so we now finalising categories with an update in the Spring. Further updates to follow. We expect the race to be popular so please don't miss out on this fun and competitive event. #whosinyourteam
