All Snetterton Race Track (SRT) events take place on the iconic race track itself. The course is flat, smooth and very fast, so there's a fantastic opportunity for a personal best. Runners have exclusive use of the entire tarmac track for the day with access to the onsite showers, toilets, changing rooms, and cafe.

 

We have live musicians and bands bashing out great tunes throughout the course, creating an uplifting atmosphere and the runs are 100% traffic free, so you can bring your own music if you like, as headphones are allowed. Each course is accurately measured and holds a UKA Licence. The race timing is provided by ChipTimingUK who offer live results and split times. 

 

The race track is 5k long, so you can choose to run 2 laps for the 10k or 1 lap for the 5k. You can either enjoy the live music on the course or your own running tunes from your headphones as you belt around this iconic race track. There will be a medal, drink and food waiting for you at the finish line. For 2018 buggies are allowed on the 5k.
