Run Club Leader Bronwyn Elsden

Sales Assistant, Jarrold Intersport

Qualified British Athletics Leader in Running Fitness

What do you love about running?
For me running is very cathartic, it is my way of releasing stress with the added bonus of being great for improving cardiovascular fitness.

Where do you like to run?
As I grew up in the countryside I enjoy scenic routes and trail running, however, since living in the city I have found some good routes near the river.

What’s your favourite distance?
My favourite distance is definitely 5km, I like challenging myself and trying to improve my PBs and because it is a relatively short distance it's easy to fit in runs before or after work.

What are you training for?
Currently I am training to increase my fitness and get back to my best running time rather than a particular race.

What race would you love to enter?
I would love to enter the Inca Trail marathon in Peru, although it's a longer distance than I would normally run the views would be amazing and it would be an unforgettable experience!

What’s your favourite running shoe?
Currently I run in Nike Lunarglides which I am getting on with really well, they're lightweight yet cushioned and ideal for the distances I like to run.

What running item, other than trainers, could you not live without?
I think the beauty of running is that you can do it with minimal equipment, however, I could not run without my Odlo high support sports bra. It's padded so really comfortable but still offers the high support you need when running, and mesh inserts mean it has good ventilation, keeping me dry and comfortable as I'm running.

Thank you so much for your continued support of Jarrold during these uncertain times

We have taken the decision with a heavy heart to close all our Jarrold stores until further notice from 4pm on Monday 23 March. This will include our online business.

We’ve been in business for 250 years, in good times and bad. But these aren't normal times and we find ourselves in the unique situation where closing our doors is the right thing to do.

If you have purchased something in the last few days and would like a refund, we're sorry that we can’t process refunds whilst we are closed but we are extending our returns policy to 28 days following our reopening.

If you placed an online order before we closed, unless you have been informed otherwise, your order has been dispatched and you should expect it from Friday 27th March onwards.

Our customer services team can be contacted via enquiries@jarrold.co.uk and we will do our best help you.

We want to keep in touch with you, so will continue to email and post on our social channels to share some things to lift your spirits. Please do follow us @JarroldNorwich on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

Warmest wishes,
Minnie and all the Jarrold team
