Race director Karen Manning, of Great Yarmouth Road Runners (GYRR), is confident that last year's entry of 400 runners will be topped by race day.
'It will be a mix of club and serious runners and members of the public,' she said.

The flat 10km course starts and finishes in St George's Park and takes in historic landmarks around the town and the regenerated seafront.
Charles Allen, exercise referral co-ordinator for the race's main sponsor, Great Yarmouth and Waveney NHS, sees the run as an excellent opportunity for people who take little or no exercise to have a goal to aim for.
