Big Fun Run at a glance

Run for fitness, run for charity, run for fun...just run!! There’s no pressure, just some easy moves and lots of laughs. It’s all about getting involved, having fun and enjoying the whole experience of the day. The events aren’t timed so what’s motivating Big Fun runners is getting together with friends & family (under 5s run for FREE), doing something healthy, raising money for a worthwhile cause  & enjoying the great outdoors.

On the day event information

When you arrive, make your way to the start and finish area - look our for the Big Fun Run pyramid and you'll know you've reached the right place.  Dress code is fun so wear whatever you like - fancy dress is always welcome however a comfortable pair of trainers is a must!

Our friendly event team will be there to welcome you and play some great tunes to get you in the mood for some fun.

Make sure that you arrive 15 minutes before the start to take part in the Big Fun Warm up - it will help you wake up and loosen off before you start your run, jog, walk, dance or whatever other method of completing the 5k route as you like.  The event is not timed so don't worry about rushing round.

There will be signage and marshals along the route to cheer you on and make sure no-one goes the wrong way.

Once you come through the finish line you will be greeted by our friendly MC and finish team who will give you a bottle of water, an event goody bag and your well deserved Big Fun Run medal.  Remember your camera or phone and why not make your way to the Big Fun Run podium where you can take your picture along with anyone you've come with - if you're tweeting, we're tweeting!

This will be free of charge and you should bring your own camera/phone for this purpose. If you would like photographs of you on the course, please ask family or friends to take some for you.
