Pace of Mind is a running project setup to help promote better physical and mental health.


In 2018, in partnership with Active Norfolk and Community Action Norfolk’s Energise programme, the project was setup for Lakenham and Tuckswood residents who were experiencing mild to moderate emotional distress. 

The group went on to participate in the Run Norwich event and continue to meet regularly each week.

Members of the group were involved in starting and now managing the Junior Park Run at Lea Bridges Park.

For more information or if you are interested in joining the group, do look up their Facebook page: Pace of Mind – running group.

Wymondham running group

On Thursday evenings, 6pm, meeting at Ketts Park (outside the main building), we run a friendly, all inclusive run club for people of any abilities. There is a run coach who plans the weekly runs to improve fitness, speed and technique. It is free to attend. 
 
We aim to help people to get fitter and work towards their goals. Some of the club recently built up from couch to 10km and have now completed two 10km runs and attend park runs! Running is great for our mental health and everyone feels a great sense of achievement after the sessions.
 
We cater to all abilities and would love to see new faces there. 
 
If you are from the area and experience mild to moderate mental health issues, come along to our friendly, informal running groups which are suitable for both beginners and more experienced runners alike.

We will support you with physios, equipment, and lots of encouragement from our volunteer “buddies,” many of whom run to maintain their recovery from mental health issues.

And there will also be the opportunity to train up as a Run Leader yourself! 

If you have any questions, please email gstg@norfolkandwaveneymind.org.uk, or just show up!
