RACE REGISTRATION: To help us assess numbers (and prize giving categories) we will require all participants for the 2km and 6km events to register ahead of the day. Registration will be open from 10th July thru to 25th August. We may accept late registrations on the day, however due to number restrictions we may not be able to guarantee a place at that time.

ENTRY FEE: There is an entry fee of £0 for under 5’s, £5 for ages 5 to 17, £10 for 18 and over, £25 for Family entry (2 Adult and up to 3 under 18’s) that will be payable for each registered competitor. This will be payable at the registration desk on the day of the event, in exchange for your runners number. This single fee per competitor will cover entries for the 2km and 6km (or to run both races if running really is your idea of fun!).

PARKING: Parking facilities will be a little limited this year at the Village Hall (hence pre-registrations to help us pre-empt numbers). We strongly encourage local residents to walk to the event if possible.

FUN RUN ROUTES: Both (2km and 6km) routes will be a combination of road, footpath and field terrain, please be prepared for a little mud depending on weather conditions. The final routes may also be subject to change depending on conditions. The race day routes will be well marked and marshalled.

SPONSORSHIP: If you wish to use the event to raise sponsorship for your own causes, please let us know via the registration forms, so that we can issue you a sponsorship form.
