After picking up the hobby during the first coronavirus lockdown, 13 employees from the developer took on the task of completing the race to support City’s Community Sports Foundation.

The CSF – organisers of the race – works to help people with disabilities and from disadvantaged backgrounds across Norfolk.

Run Norwich was completed virtually this year to comply with government guidelines, with more than 1,500 people taking part by running 10k in any location of their choice.

Regional managing director Simon Medler was one of the 13 Lovell workers who took on the task.
