We are introducing an extra version of the event, to be run solo. We will use Strava but don’t worry if you don’t have it – we trust you to submit honest race times and we will easily spot if they seem unlikely! Here are the details of how it will work.

Ed Burton Time Trial


This is a series of three 5 mile races for club members taking place in the summer months. All races start at 7.00 at the level crossing at Wymondham Abbey station and finish in Lady's Lane. Register (free) from 6.30 in the meadow just by the railway. There are awards for the best improvers throughout the series as well as prizes and spot prizes for each race.


Ed Burton was a club member who played an active part in the club. He joined in 2002 and represented us at many races and was a member of the club Round Norfolk Relay team in 2006. That year they completed the course in 22hrs 38minutes, the club record for the race. He was tragically killed in a road accident on an evening in 2010 when we were due to run one of the 5 mile time trial races. The race was cancelled that night out of respect and the series re-named the “Ed Burton Time Trial”
