Over the weekend the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation’s (CSF) hosted the incredible ‘Run Norwich’ event. It's a 10k run making its way through the heart of Norwich and this year it attracted thousands of runners (4,237 to be exact!) and hundreds of volunteers.
The event itself was founded in 2015 with the desire to support local charities through fundraising, attract visitors to the city centre and boost participation in running.
As a church we played a small part in the overall machine of brilliance. We want to say a massive thank you to those from King's who either volunteered or donned their running shoes and participated in the race. Well done!
We've put together a short highlights video which you can see below. Why not see if you can spot yourself if you were at the event!
CSF Director Ian Thornton was delighted with the run and he praised the support and hard work of race partners, sponsors and volunteers:
“There are so many individuals and organisations we are indebted to – the 300 volunteers who supported on the day, our race technical team and of course, our partner organisations The Forum, Visit Norfolk, Norwich BID, Norwich City Council and Norwich City Football Club.”
“This was only the second Run Norwich we have put on, so we will be contacting our runners shortly for their feedback to help us make year’s event even better.”
