Having ventured this far you will want to find out more about what makes this 5 mile Fun Run such a fantastic charity fundraising success every year.
The answer is simply you – all the runners, mini-runners and their parents, the residents who turn out to cheer the runners on along the closed village streets, the marshals and helpers on the day, and by no means the least our sponsors.
For 2014 we have 3 deserving nominated charities –
- The Brain Tumour Charity
- Northleigh House – for bullied children
- Vision Care – for homeless people
- and as usual we shall retain 30% for local causes.
The only change this year will be the expansion of the mini-runs for the under 9 year olds, now with one for each year – Year 1, 2, 3 & 4, with a free Fun Run t-shirt for every mini-runner.
Entry fees remain unchanged again – £13 for adults, veterans and super-veterans, £6.50 for juniors & secondaries & £4.00 for mini-runners with a FREE t-shirt
We shall have all the usual categories with trophies and prizes to be won:
- Junior (1 or 2 lap), Secondary, Adult, Veteran for both males and females
- Super Veteran for over 60s
- Fancy dress – prizes for Mini Runners as well as the Fun Runners
- Junior, Secondary & Adult Teams (all 4 to finish)
This year’s V.I.P. will be comedian and entertainer Don Maclean who will be starting all the runs and awarding trophies and prizes
Enter now and be assured of your place. NB Entries close this year of Sunday 11th May.
See you on the starting line in May.
