Family Fun Runs
Run 1 - Access to all no times approx 1.3 mile includes a bespoke medal
Run 2 - 10 to 16 year olds approx 2.8 mile includes manual timing and a bespoke medal.
These runs are strictly for fun and it’s all about relaxed exercise, accomplishing personal goals, raising money for a worthwhile cause, and having a laugh in the process. No times, no pressure, no sweat – just some easy moves and lots of laughs. The run is suitable for all the family.
It isn’t about Olympic level athletes aiming for a record time. It’s about mums with prams, dads with toddlers, groups running together, fancy dress, kid’s getting active or even raising money for a well-deserved local cause.
