This year the Family Fun Run will take place on Sunday 6 October at 2pm. This 1.5 mile route around The Sheepmount and Bitts Park is a fantastic event for all the family.

The event starts from the Event Village at 2pm on Sunday 6 October, with a warm up 15 minutes before. Please arrive in plenty of time to collect your race number from the collection point before the race. 

Where can I park? 

The nearest available parking will be Castle Car Park (3 minute walk), The Sands Centre (10 minute walk) or The Swifts Bank Car Park (12 minute walk). Please note there will be NO parking or vehicle access to The Sheepmount Stadium.

What is the Event Village? 

The Event Village is on track at The Sheepmount Stadium, and includes a bar, hot food, children's activities and stands from some of our great partners. The Event Village is open from 9am-4pm. This is the recommended viewing point for spectators, as the Half Marathon finishes in the Event Village.

Entries are available on the day. 

This run is 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 but most importantly raising money for a well-deserved local cause of your choice.
