FAQs

WHERE WILL RUNFESTRUN TAKE PLACE?
RunFestRun 2021 will take place on 27-29 August 2021 at Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire.


WHAT DOES ‘ALONGSIDE’ CHRIS EVANS’ CARFEST MEAN?
RunFestRun will take place alongside Chris Evans’ CarFest, the family festival fundraising millions for UK Children’s Charities.

RunFestRun will operate as originally planned throughout the day, with a fantastic series of runs, designed by the legendary Steve Cram CBE, through the grounds of Laverstoke Park Farm.

When you’re not running you can enjoy inspiring talks from running heroes including Paula Radcliffe and Colin Jackson, family activities, fitness workshops, our shopping village and fabulous street food and drink.

During the evening, RunFestRun visitors will join CarFest to party with headline acts on the main stage including Rick Astley, All Saints, James Blunt, James Bay, McFly and Texas.


HOW FAR IS CARFEST FROM RUNFESTRUN?
CarFest and RunFestRun remain separate festival sites and can be accessed via a bridge over a road and short walk (no more than 5 minutes). A crossing point will be provided for those who are unable to climb stairs.


IS THE EVENT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN?
Many young children enjoy festivals - some of them enjoying live music for the first time on the shoulders of their parents. However, there are some precautions you may wish to take to ensure that it is an enjoyable experience for you all.

There will be live music on each day of the event. If you are intent on watching from close quarters we would recommend using ear protection on children for their own comfort. Likewise it is not recommended that young children get too close to the sound systems for the main stage.

The music each evening will go on until 10pm or 11pm. You should use your judgement and knowledge of your children to determine whether they, and therefore you, will find this enjoyable or not.


ARE DOGS ALLOWED AT RUNFESTRUN?
For hygiene and safety reasons ONLY registered guide dogs and hearing dogs will be allowed in any part of RunFestRun, including the campsite. Dogs cannot be left in vehicles or caravans at any time. Visitors attempting to bring a dog (other than assistance dogs) onto the campsite or festival site will be turned away and no ticket refunds will be available.


CAN I VOLUNTEER AT RUNFESTRUN?
Volunteering is a great opportunity to work with the RunFestRun team and understand how the event operates. It’s also a great way to enjoy the festival and work alongside friends and family.

If you would like to apply to be a volunteer please complete the volunteer application form.

RunFestRun encourages applications from deaf and disabled people. Assistance will be offered to those who wish to apply.

Please note, you must be over 18 years of age to apply.

Checkpoints will offer water and a variety of basic nutrition. These should be treated as a complement to the personal supplies you bring. These will be self-service to comply with covid guidelines.

A race t-shirt is included with weekend, Saturday and Sunday adult and child (6-17) tickets and will be available from race registration. Just like the London Marathon, we will be using the RunFestRun 2020 t-shirts that we had printed as this is a more sustainable option than having these reprinted.

Tickets Purchased after 25th October 2020

T-shirts will not be included in any tickets purchased after the 25th October 2020. This is reflected in the price of the ticket. Limited numbers of t-shirts will be available to purchase onsite at the festival.

We do not allow gazebos, laysacs, windbreakers or tents. Structures like these block the view of the stage for other RunFestRunners, so please be considerate of your fellow festival goers when setting up your area for the evening and don’t take up too much space!
