Winter seems contrived to keep us in the house and on the couch. Cold fronts. Polar vortexes. It’s far too early in the year to think about lacing up your running shoes and getting the blood flowing. Right?
According to the weather man, spring is in the air, which means there should be a spring in your step. We’ve put together a quick list of some of our favourite running routes near or Norfolk holiday cottages. If you still need a silver lining, some of them lead to the pub.
Weavers’ Way, Short Walk

This 3.5 mile trail is a gorgeous, rural circular that takes you on a brief yet eclectic run. Start at the village of Thurne, and enjoy the varied scenery of farmland, working mills, an authentic thatched church, historic railway lines.
