The Nelson Knee-nobler - 28th July 2019

After the amazing success of the 1st Nelson Knee-Knobbler in October 2014 - the feedback was so great from everyone who ran and such a fantastic time was had by all - we’ve decided to put on an annual 3-race series!

Taking place in the beautiful setting of Winterton-on-Sea, Norfolk and with the help of Winterton Parish Council, the event starts and finishes on the Winterton Playing Field just on the outskirts of the village - and if you've never been to Winterton you're missing a trick and you'll be truly stunned by it's beauty..!

The course takes in some of the most beautiful sights that the Norfolk coast has to offer.  You’ll run along what feels like remote open pathways, up and over sand dunes with views as far as the eye can see, past the seals at the local seal colony (predominantly Long Distance race) and run with your toes inches form the water.

The events can be entered individually, or you can run in all three and compete for the series!

The Nelson Knee-Knobbler events are truly amazing, beautiful, challenging, highly unique and above all HUGE fun, are fast becoming ‘must do events’ - so book up now and experience the wonders of the Dunes…!
