Organiser's Description

The fourth running of this Fun Run event, with the choice of 10k, 5k and 1k fun run for younger participants. With chip timing, finisher medals, bouncy castles, BBQs and the start/finish outside the local pub, 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. For those wishing for a slightly less strenuous workout there is the 5k option. In addition, children of Primary school age may enter the 1k which will consist of several laps of the village green and will provide an ideal opportunity for parents to cheer on their children!

A great community event with all the proceeds going towards local projects such as the new school playground which will enhance our children's enjoyment of the great outdoors.

NB: The children's 1k fun run is £3 on the day, or a discounted rate of £1 if the child has a sponsorship form in favour of their own primary school. Online entries are now closed, but you can still enter on the day.

A fun day. I really enjoyed the 1k run and I am now going to run 5k with my mum next year! Thank you for organising the event.

A Lovely Community Event. A very well organised, community event. It was fun and family friendly, especially with the 1k fun run being held before the longer runs, so everyone one could watch the little ones as they raced round the village green. The route of the 10k was scenic and the marshals were super enthusiastic. Add in plenty of parking and fabulous weather and you have a pretty perfect event.

Lovely country run. Despite heat and humidity from parking, collecting number, Marshall’s and commentators encouragement, it was a well organised and friendly run.

Great 10k run. Prerace- collected my race number when I arrived there which was quick and easy. The race took longer than I thought to get started as there was a 1k fun run before the main 5/10k runs 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. Lovely route, fab medals & free water bottles. My 3 teenage girls & I really enjoyed it. Great location.

Well organised, challenging course. The race was well organised and flowed smoothly. It was a challenging course due to the undulating route (added to that it was also a hot day). I will be back next year!

Nice day out. I was made aware of this event by my sons school so thought I’d give it a go. Bit of a queue to get in to the car park but that was to be expected. Once in the lady at the entrance was very friendly and they seemed quite organised. I just followed the crowd to the school as didn’t really know where I was going and had to ask someone where I collected my race number from which I collected easily enough. I took myself over to the start and waited til we were instructed to go! It was suppose to be 10k first then 5k but everyone seemed to go at the same time! The course is very pleasant with a couple of hills but they could have done with a few more marshals as several people went the wrong way! I enjoyed it but was a bit miffed with the ‘medal’ as not sure you could actually call it that! Overall it’s a lovely event and I suspect I will take part again especially now I know what is what 😁

Well organised, friendly event. First time running this on Sunday. Very good organisation both beforehand and on the day. Lots of helpers around for parking and marshalling. Very hilly course so be warned! It is mainly in countryside so stunning views.

A friendly run. I've done this run a couple of times now - not the largest, (which is a plus for me), but one of the friendliest! Its probably not for you if you are looking to beat your PB, but is for you if looking for a lovely run across varied terrain.

A well organised event. Set in a lovely village, easy parking and very well organised. 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
