Two Dereham sports clubs have joined forces in a bid to raise funds and host the first organised running race to be held at a mid-Norfolk park.

Dereham Otters Swimming Club and Dereham Hockey Club will host a 10km, 5km and a 2.5km fun run at Sennowe Park in Guist on Sunday, September 15.

The event will see runners follow a mainly off-road run, taking in the scenes of the lake, wood and parkland.

All funds raised from the event, which organisers hope will become annual, will be split between the two clubs.

Organiser Sarah Ward, 37, who is a coach at Dereham Otters Swimming Club, said: 'The two clubs have never done anything together before but we thought why don't we come together and creat something that we can do as a yearly thing? We're hoping it will be a family event. There will be a hog roast, teas and coffees and cakes afterwards and the setting is beautiful.'
