Big Fun Run is a series of 5k untimed runs staged within scenic settings throughout the UK from July to October. 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.
Make sure that you arrive 15 minutes before the start to take part in the Big Fun Warm up. 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.
The area around Crosby beach, and Crosby Marine Park stretches from Waterloo to the estuary of the River Alt at Hightown. The Coastal Park is currently home to Antony Gormley’s Another Place.
The park is easily located and accessible via great transport links. The nearest railway stations are Blundellsands and Crosby, and Hall Road. Car parking is available at Crosby Beach North Car Park – this is pay and display. All participants are encouraged to consider public transport or car sharing if at all possible. For further information and travel/parking details for Crosby Coastal Park please click here.
The Start/Finish area is based just beside the Crosby Beach North Car Park.
