General and charity entries for Run Norwich 2018 are now open!
Story added: 23rd November 2017
A three-time Run Norwich entrant will be recognised for his services to others at Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship Norwich City FC fixture against Preston North End.
Dudley Garner will bring out the match ball as the game’s ‘Community Hero’, a Norwich City FC accolade reserved for individuals who have made a difference in the local community.
Despite living with the effects of a traumatic brain injury he suffered in a car accident eight years ago, the 35-year-old has raised over £10,000 for the Headway Norfolk & Waveney charity, and recently won a national award from England Athletics.

Dudley scooped the ‘Run Together Leader of the Year’ award for his work with Norwich-based running group ‘Up The Tempo Couch To 5k’, which helps others discover the benefits of running.

The Run Norwich team would like to wish Dudley all the best for Saturday!
"I want to help other people in a similar situation who maybe haven’t got the family or support. Running has made a huge difference to my mental and physical health and I want to help provide that opportunity for others"
