12-week training club to be led by double Olympian Paul Evans

A special 12-week training club will be held in the build-up to this year’s Run Norwich, overseen by double Olympic champion Paul Evans.

Up to 100 runners (first come, first served) will be able to benefit from the training sessions and receive expert advice from Paul and his team of qualified England Athletics running coaches.

The sessions will take place on Thursday evening across two time slots (6.00pm-7.00pm and 7.30pm-8.30pm) at The Nest, the Community Sports Foundation’s new community hub in Horsford.

Each session will be split into two groups – beginners and intermediate/advanced, with the first week beginning on Thursday 2nd May. Sessions cost just £2 each (payable as a one-off non-refundable £24 payment, plus a £1 booking free) and spaces are strictly limited.

The sessions will be held on manicured grassland away from the roads, and done in a loop/circuit, so no one will get left behind.

The Nest has parking, toilets and changing facilities.

Places are strictly limited to 100 places, and will be available on a first come, first served basis.
