If you've been feeling the post-Christmas slump, why not sign-up to the first ever 'Lee’d The Way' charity park run to give yourself a bit of a New Year health-kick.

Lee’d The Way is a fun run challenge to raise money and awareness for Leeway, the Norfolk based domestic abuse charity, supported by the Chairman of Broadland District Council, Cllr Judy Leggett.

Held at Catton Park, runners and families alike are invited to run, jog or walk at least one lap of the park. Participants have the choice to enter a team and run the race as a relay or do it on their own and run as many laps as they please.

Prizes will be given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place runners and medals will be awarded to all participants. Refreshments will also be available on the day as well as activities and arts and crafts for children.

  • Where: Catton Park, Norwich
  • When: Sunday 20th January 2019
  • Time: Challenge starts at 12 noon (registration from 10.45am)
  • Lap distance: 1 mile – do as many as you like!
  • Entry fees: £5 solo, £20 team (maximum of six people)

Mandy Proctor, Chief Executive of Leeway, said:

"We’re delighted to open up the registrations for our very first Lee’d The Way Relay. We hope it provides the opportunity for both families and runners to get some fresh air and exercise, as well as raising money and awareness for a great cause. The money raised will enable us to continue to provide high-quality services to those experiencing domestic abuse.”

Cllr Judy Leggett, Chairman of Broadland District Council, said:

"At Broadland District Council we are proud to offer our support to Leeway – it’s a fantastic charity doing lots of great work for individuals and families in Norfolk. Lee’d The Way is the perfect opportunity to get a New Year health kick in January whilst also benefitting a brilliant cause.”
