Each year it helps bring the Hethersett community together in the name of fitness and friendly competition.
And now the future of the village's Run the Square fun run has been secured thanks to a £1,000 donation as part of a Persimmon Community Champions Scheme.
Shane Hull, organiser and parish councillor, said he was delighted with the donation, which would help pay for the insurance and other costs for this year's event on July 16.
Mr Hull said: 'It's a volunteer-run event that encourages health and fitness in the community, and everyone can get involved.
'This very kind donation means that we can keep the entry fee unchanged this year.'

Hethersett Run the Square was launched eight years ago in the build up to the London Olympics in 2012, and it continues as a 'legacy' event of the games.
Mr Hull said 200 to 300 people took part in the run each year.
