2019 was the year that running returned to Aylsham in a big way.
On June 7th the first EPIC (Exercising People In Communities) 5k run was held around the town. Over 200 people participated on a lovely sunny afternoon taking in both the historic urban centre and the near countryside of the Marriotts Way. This led to the resurrection of Aylsham Runners, who meet regularly at the Recreation Ground (these meetings have been suspended for the time being, due to coronavirus).
The Recreation Ground was also the venue for a colour run last October. This involved nearly 150 people doing five 1k laps of the Recreation Ground whilst getting paint thrown at them at the end of each lap!
These events were so successful that we hope they will be repeated, along with the Aylsham half marathon, later in 2020.
