Get your run sponsored

We hope runners will want to ask friends, relatives and colleagues to put their hands in their pockets to sponsor their run on Sunday 20 May for Breast Cancer Haven, Headway & local causes.

Anyone running in Royal Wedding themed fancy dress should find it particularly easy to get support

Anyone using our Fun Run to raise funds for other causes should let us know so we give them a mention, please

Sponsors back to tackle the Team Competitions

Last year 2 new sponsors entered teams as well as generously sponsoring the Kidsruns and donating finish line biscuits.

Team Listers JLR (James Walsh, Jack Brighton, Seb Morgan-Giles, Karl Sollis) won the 5k team competition.

Team Aldi (Michael Benson, Chris Sorenson, Alec Kirkbride, Jon Weal) entered the 10k team competition and came a very creditable 5th behind 4 running club teams.

Watch out for them again in their company shirts this May.

Will your company be entering a team this year?

Kids Run or 5k

That’s is the decision for all Years 2-4 runners this year, as we have opened up the 5k Fun Run to younger runners provided they are accompanied all the way around by an adult.

Recognising that some of our younger runners regularly run 5k we have listened to their parents and now they must make the decision when entering – Kids Run or 5K

All kids runs runners receive a free t-shirt courtesy of Arundales Accountants, but those electing to join the 5k run will run as Junior Runners and must pay the Juniors entry fee and purchase the lime green t-shirt when they are entered if they would like one.

Last years Year 1 KIDS are off

And YES the BIG RED ARCH will be with us again on the day. We are delighted that the Sutton Runner has stepped in and negotiated with New Balance for the arch as usual and for 5k & 10k winners vouchers on the day

Kidsrun winners will receive goody bags courtesy of Listers LandRover

Kids run 5k

Following requests we have now opened the 5k run to Kids year 2, 3 and 4.  Responsible adults must must choose when entering if they wish to enter children in their KIDSrun, or the 5k Fun Run. If choosing the 5k you will pay the Junior rate and need to buy your t-shirt. They must accompany Year 2, 3 and 4 5k runners all the way around the course i.e. enter the run themselves.

We suggest they should only be entered for the 5k if they have already run 5k 

Year 1 KIDS are off
