Giving athletics a go at Norfolk Festival of Sport
In August, the picturesque Holkham Hall in Norfolk provided the perfect backdrop for the third edition of the Norfolk Festival of Sport at this venue. Originally founded by Austin Healey and Will Greenwood, the Festival moved from its Twickenham home three years ago.
The day provided ‘give it a go’ opportunities in a staggering 25 different sports giving the perfect setting for children to try something new and test their skills.
Within athletics, over 400 young people took part in different running, jumping, and throwing activities throughout the day. The festival had athletics legends Jenny Meadows and Derek Redmond coaching and inspiring the children whilst also supporting 35 parents with a special ‘How to Run’ session, demonstrating the accessibility of running to everyone.
