Thetford Parkrun director Melanie Sturman said Mr Vince was a 'really supportive' member of the volunteer team.
She said: 'He volunteered at a lot of different running events. He was really supportive and he was always positive. We had 232 people who paid their tributes to him which was really nice.'
