Thai Chi provides a no cost activity called Run Together NORSUF Running Group, which was established in May 2017. During that time, 154 people have registered and walked/run with the group for free.

Trevor Rawson is the only volunteer Group and Run Leader. He facilitates two free sessions per week limited to a max 16 people per session. The group could expand if there are more volunteer leaders but they have to be trained and licenced. With two additional leaders the group size could increase and additional weekly sessions could be offered, helping more people to get out and run.

We have awarded funding so they can train two volunteer Run Leaders.  This will help open up more opportunities to join the group over a wider area around the borough.

Trevor says, “Established in 2016 NORSUF Running Group is a free and friendly welcoming environment for new runners. You do not have to be a runner or achieve any standard to join; everyone takes part their way. Receiving funding from Great Yarmouth Sport and Leisure Trust will allow us to train two additional volunteer Run Leaders for our Group. They will go on to conduct their own sessions welcoming more people to an activity that can, with regular practice be life changing. As an England Athletics Coach and Mental Health Champion I have seen some fantastic personal and physical achievements by our members. #Runandtalk”.

Run with your community

parkrun is an inclusive event run entirely by volunteers who are all parkrunners themselves. It is not a race and anyone is welcome to come to walk, run, volunteer or spectate. With over 1.7 MILLION runners in the UK, it is a great way to start the weekend.

It is simple to register and all parkruns are free. The organisers are keen to make it accessible to all members of the community including those with disabilities and long term health conditions.

If you live in the borough of Great Yarmouth, your local parkruns are every Saturday at 9am at Gorleston Cliffs and also at Fritton Lake. 

Get active! If you haven't registered before, you can register here - see you there!
