Fun Runs and Kids Events in 2020

Training For Fun Running | Fun Runs Near Me


As the name suggests a fun run is a non competitive and in many cases are designed for children to take part in, though there are also plenty for adults to enjoy too. Because no one is keeping score, these races have a much more relaxed attitude and as such many will have a theme or element to them that makes them very unique compared to usual races.

You may see many fun races where people dress up in costume and run the entire race that way – it’s all part of what makes these runs fun! More recently Colour Runs such as the Wiggle Color Vibe have become very popular amongst first time runners as they offer short distances whilst keeping things relaxed and fun.

Training For Fun Running

Training for a fun running can vary a lot depending on what elements the race has to it – as such you should find out all the info you can well in advance and then tailor your training to what you need to do on the day. As mentioned though many of these races are designed with kids in mine so you may just wish to go down to one and have a great family day out at an event such as the Big Fun Run

Kids Fun Run

Kids Course

COMING SOON! After the success of last year, we are delighted that the St. Rocco’s Lantern Walk will be making its second appearance this autumn. All ages are invited to take part in a 1 mile twilight walk around Orford Park to help raise money for St. Rocco’s!

The St. Rocco’s sponsored Lantern Walk will illuminate the night sky, during an evening filled with glowing lights and entertainment, all to raise valuable funds for your local Hospice. Children of all ages and their families are welcomed to join us again for an evening of twilight fun. Walkers will be given a glowing handheld lantern to create a sea of twinkling light, as participants make their way around the 1 mile route. 

Some well-known and popular children’s characters will join in alongside music and entertainment. A fantastic family fun fair and hot food will be on offer at the end of the walk for all the family to enjoy.  

We are kindly asking each walker to try to raise £25 (or more!) for their walk with every penny of sponsorship going towards patient care and support for families. 

Registration is just £5 per child with accompanying adults FREE! A lantern and finishing medal is included in registration, with additional lanterns and merchandise available to buy on the night to give walkers some extra sparkle!

Registration for this fun family event will open soon, so keep an eye on this page, our news pages and Facebook page for more details! 

Children and big kids alike can take part in the walk and are invited to come in fancy dress if they wish! Places are limited so make sure you sign up as soon as registration opens! All ages can walk although all under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
