A hugely popular race through the city's streets will return this summer, with runners invited to get entries in for Run Norwich from next week.
More than 3,800 people entered the inaugural 10k Run Norwich race in August last year and organisers Norwich City Community Sports Foundation (CSF) believe the 2016 event will be even better.
CSF director Ian Thornton said: 'The success of last year's event exceeded even our own high expectations. The city came alive, and runners, organisers, volunteers, and spectators made it a special day that we want to repeat in Norwich for years to come.
'Our race technical team took the feedback from last year's runners and have come up with some improvements to the route that we think will make this year's race even better.
'We're grateful to the team from the Cathedral for allowing us to take Run Norwich through the grounds.'
