The government advice on outdoor sports activities has changed. However the club is still not able to meet at Sprowston High School. The Juniors are ,in the meantime, meeting for short fun training sessions and details can be found on the Norwich Road Runners Juniors Facebook page
Junior Norwich Road Runners
The Norwich Road Runners have a junior branch of the club, providing coaching and training to children aged 7 to 16 in a safe and supervised environment. Currently we have more than 65 junior Norwich Road Runners who attend sessions at the club. We offer a fantastic environment in which children interested in running can train safely, to a programme of exercise designed for developing children, can socialise, encourage each other, and build a real community of sportsmanship (and fun!).
All sessions are lead by a qualified instructor who specialises in junior coaching and athletic development, with help from club members who have undertaken the Leadership in Running Fitness award - all of whom have been DBS checked.

We always look forward to welcoming new junior road runners.

The Junior Norwich Road Runners meets on Thursday evenings (6.45pm for 7pm start, finishing at 8pm) and Saturday mornings (10.30am to 12.30pm).Please meet on the field. The Saturday session includes different exercises as well as running while Tuesday is mostly running.
All parents/carers are required to sign in and sign out their children at the beginning and end of each session.
We highly recommend that juniors come with water they may need for the session, and are dressed appropriately for the weather outside.
Everyone who takes part in athletics is entitled to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment.
Norwich Road Runners is committed to devising, implementing and updating policies and procedures to promote best practice when working with children, and to ensure that everyone in the club understands and accepts their responsibilities to safeguard children from harm and abuse. This means taking action to report any concerns about their welfare.
The club has developed and implemented a Safeguarding & Welfare Policy:
The club has put a structure in place, with key personnel, to ensure this policy is enacted.
The club's Welfare Officer is Beryl Knowles. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Code of Behaviour
The junior runners have developed their own code of behaviour, which all junior runners and parents are required to sign when joining the club.
The junior section of the club is covered by the club's Constitution, Officer Roles, Code of Conduct, and Grievance and Disciplinary Procedures.
