Quendon and Rickling RunFest
The Quendon & Rickling RunFest is back after the posponment of 2020 with a choice of 10k & 5k mixed terrain fun run, and a 1k fun run for younger participants. We also have a NEW 1km ROUTE for 2020 to make it a little more interesting for the kids!
After the success of last year we will once again be incorporating a true festival atmosphere with bouncy castles, games, stalls, raffles, ice cream, beer stalls, BBQ and much more, so we're looking forward to lots people signing up to join in the fun!
Starting on the Village Green, the run is largely off road and multi terrain making use of woodland paths, local footpaths and bridleways. The event will appeal to runners of all levels of fitness as well as the more experienced. Primary school age children may enter the 1k.
A great community event with 100% of the proceeds going towards Rickling Primary School for new facilities.
Provisional date - bookings will open up once confirmed.

This year we are once again encouraging children to raise sponsorship for the school by competing in the Quendon & Rickling RunFest 2021.
By using JustGiving for sponsorship we can claim an extra 25% through GiftAid for any monies sponsored by UK tax payers, in addition to making it much more straightforward to collect funds.
Please visit the link below to set up your own fundraising page through JustGiving.
You will either need to register or sign in if you already have a JustGiving account. It is really simple, and only takes a minute or two.

A fun day
Great Fun Organised Event
A Lovely Community Event
Lovely country run
Great 10k run
start of the run- Seemed a little confusing at the beginning as 10k runners were supposed to be at the front of the start line and 5ks following but it seemed not many people understood this
but once it got started it went well and the marshals were very helpful and supportive.
The track was a little tricky as a lot of it was on loose stone paths but was good for a challenge
At the end, you could print out your race time and position which was very helpful
Very friendly & well organised event
Well organised, challenging course
Nice day out!
Well organised, friendly event!
A friendly run!
A well organised event
Great route and really enjoyed it. Will sign up again next year.
A little pricey for a run though but understand its for a good cause
