Quendon and Rickling RunFest
Rescheduled event from June 14th.
The Quendon & Rickling RunFest is back for 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.

Race Pack Delivery
This event has been rescheduled from June 14th 2020 due to the current situation and the guidelines regarding social distancing.
We have been going through the options available to us, and it has been decided that the event will be rescheduled to September 13th, early in the new school year.
Obviously if we can't go ahead with this new date then we will let you know as soon as we can, but we hope that you will all be able to make this new date as successful as it has been in the past.
We will be strictly following any guidelines and recommendations in place at the time to ensure the safety of everyone involved including competitors, volunteers, and spectators. We will know more about exactly what this entails closer to the time.
Anyone who has already made a booking will be automatically transferred over so you don't need to do anything apart from maybe getting out for those socially distanced training runs!
The only other change to note is that we will be posting out race packs to everyone, rather than offering it as an option. This is so that we can control the amount of people in the hall, maintain a level of social distancing, whilst cutting down on queues and backlogs on the morning of the event.
As such the entry fee has increased slightly by £2 to accommodate this.
Rickling Green, CB11 3YG
Half way between Bishops Stortford and Saffron Walden.
Due to the current situation and social distancing guidelines, and to help reduce the delays and queues in the registration hall, this year we are posting out your race packs to you. That way you can then just turn up and run!
As such the entry fee has increased slightly to accommodate this, but only by £2.

No age limit for children wishing to run the 5k event if they are accompanied by a running / paying adult.

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
