Quendon and Rickling RunFest
The Quendon & Rickling RunFest is back for 2019 with a choice of 10k & 5k trail run, and a 1k fun run for younger participants. This year we are 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 which will consist of three laps of the village green and will provide an ideal opportunity for parents to cheer on their children.
A great community event with 100% of the proceeds going towards Rickling Primary School for new facilities.
Online bookings have now closed, but you can still enter on the day - subject to availability!

This year we are once again encouraging children to raise sponsorship for the school by competing in the Quendon & Rickling RunFest 2019.
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.
Get your 2019 event t-shirt for just £10. Order now and collect it on race day.
1k fun run - Open to primary school age children
5k - 11yrs old or over on race day (if running unaccompanied)
10k - 15 yrs or over on race day (if running unaccompanied)
No age limit for children wishing to run the 5k event if they are accompanied by a running / paying adult.
Children under the age of 11 wishing to run the 5k event unaccompanied may do so but will need to have a guardians approval disclaimer signed at registration.
There is plenty of parking available in the field just a short walk from the village green. We will be asking for a small discretionary donation for the use of the car park which will go towards the parish council.
We rely on volunteers to make this event possible, so if you would like to help out in any way then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
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
