The fun races, supervised by the North Norfolk Beach Runners, will have four classes over a one-mile course on the promenade, for under-13s up to seniors, and an open race for fancy dress.
Registration is on the pier forecourt at 2.30pm with entry £2.
Quiz sheets, giving families a chance to test themselves on a walk around the town, are available from the parish church all afternoon.
A torchlit procession leaves the church at 4.30pm, and the fireworks will be at the pier at 5pm, weather permitting.
