SEEKING ADDITIONAL ADULT ASSISTANCE OR JUNIOR COACHES
As a small club we are not exactly flush with junior coaches, which risks a session having only one qualified coach in attendance. We have to have at least two adults present and we want to avoid cancelling a session due to holidays/illness of the current coaches. We are therefore looking for additional people who might like to volunteer to assist with our ever growing junior division (now having reached 50 children):
- either in a coaching capacity, as a UKA licenced assistant coach or fully qualified to UKA level 1 or 2; (the club will pay the training fees),
- or as a volunteer (with parents who have signed up to help, to whom we are very grateful for their continued assistance!) on our rota for a Monday or Thursday evening each month to assist with the training sessions. Any help you can give would enable us to continue to provide an enjoyable evening of athletics for our junior members.
Please contact us if you would like to find out more, without obligation, and we will call or meet you to tell you more. Many thanks, Dereham Runners AC

Formed in 1986 by a group of runners lacking local facilities at which to train, Dereham Runners AC has evolved into one of the most successful ‘grassroots’ athletics clubs in the county.
Based at the Dereham Neatherd High School – close to where those very first running steps were taken – we have our own clubhouse on the sports field at the rear of the school. We enjoy use of the school’s sports field and 8-lane grass running track during the summer months and with the provision of our own floodlighting are able to use the field for our outdoor training sessions in the autumn/winter seasons. We also have the use of the main hall for the juniors' winter training and indoor sports hall athletics sessions.
We are a friendly club and we cater for all age groups and abilities. Our present membership ranges in age from 7 to 67. We offer support, UK Athletics qualified coaching and training in a wide range of track and field, road running and cross country disciplines.
Not all members are interested in competitive running – some train simply to keep fit or lose weight.
Our members also have the opportunity to take part in a multitude of competitive events, both at junior and senior level, in Norfolk and around the country – some even compete in various road running events around the world. We normally have at least one runner representing the club in the London Marathon each year. In recent years we have had people approach the club primarily to train for this particular race. We are proud to have been able to help them all achieve their personal goal and many have gone on to become long-term club members.
Our junior athletes have also achieved success in a variety of events over recent years, taking part in both the county and national indoor sports hall competitions and the Ryston Runners Grand Prix cross country race series.
Contact us today if you are interested in finding out more about joining our club.
