SRT 5K & 10K
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.

How accurate are the COVID-19 tests you use?
Who produces your COVID-19 infection and antibody tests?
Thermo-fisher produces our COVID-19 PCR test and Abbott produces the antibody test. Both are authorized by the FDA and also by European labs.
I heard about the FDA's concerns about Abbott’s instant coronavirus test. Do you use this test?
COVID-19 testing performed at WHG does not use Abbott's "instant" coronavirus detection test. We utilize Abbott's proven and reliable serum IgG blood test for antibody testing only, which is a different test and method for detection altogether than the rapid test by Abbott recently scrutinized in the media.
Does the COVID-19 antibody test detect 2 or 3 antibodies?
Does insurance cover the COVID-19 antibody test?
If I’m feeling well, should I still get tested?
What are the benefits to getting the COVID-19 antibody test if you have not had any symptoms?
Many cases of COVID-19 virus infection are asymptomatic so it is possible you may have had an infection and already have antibodies to protect you from further infection. Although research is still being done on COVID-19 infection, in general, when people have positive antibodies they are either immune or much less likely to become infected.
Should I get re-tested before I go back to work in two weeks?
It is currently unclear whether sequential testing or repeated testing is necessary. If you are asymptomatic and test negative for both antibody and the virus, then there is probably no need for antibody testing in another 2 weeks.
My family member tested positive for COVID-19 and is recovering now. Would these tests benefit him or her?
Once someone has tested positive, then the antibody test will give information that he or she is likely to be resistant to further re-infection. However, we are still researching this. This is the person who is least likely to need either test.
