This is an invitation event for schools, and if you would like to get your school involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fun Runs and Kids Events in 2020
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 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
These types of event are fantastic for children and alot of providers offer reduced entry prices for them too. Look out for ones that allow fancy dress, they will always appeal more to children if they can run as their favorite super hero or cartoon character!
Fun Runs for Charity
There are plenty of runs where you can also raise money for a charity, you can use our charity filter in the left search to find charities that support events. They will normally set you a fundraising amound and even give you sponsorship forms to help track any money raised.
- Pupils enter in teams of 4, completing each discipline as a relay
- All 4 team members will complete the swim, before moving to the bike, then the run stage
- Each entrant aims to raise £100 for charity (£50 minimum to take part) and entry is therefore free to the event. We will help you set up your just giving page as part of registration.
ABOUT THE EVENT
After the success of the 2 events last year, where 1000 children took part and raised an amazing £110,000 and the children and parents had a fantastic day, we are pleased to have 4 events in 2017 at Royal Russell School on April 23rd, Bradfield College on May 7th, Cranleigh School on May 14th, and Marlborough College on May 21st.
The Flight Centre Schools Triathlon is a chance for children from school years 3-8 to come together and compete in their own event. We aim to host 20 events across the UK within the next three years, with 10,000 young people taking part and raising £1 million per year, funds that will support the ambition and opportunities of young people less fortunate than themselves.
The event format presents a fun way for children and young people to be introduced to triathlon. By hosting the swim in a pool, and keeping the bike section off road, pupils do not need any special equipment to enter, and the event can be held in a safe and secure environment within school grounds. Participating schools are encouraged to enter a range of abilities, from competitive teams, to those who want to have a fun day out with friends. This will mean Restless Triathlon becoming a major sporting event for all levels of competitor.
The Flight Centre Schools Triathlon is backed by Restless Development, an international development charity that puts young people at the very heart of dealing with the issues that affect them, their communities, and their countries. The event will help raise funds for Restless Development and the chosen charities of the host and participating schools.
To be able to offer free entry for our participants, each entrant is asked to reach a £100 fundraising target – with a minimum of £50 raised to be able to take part. The first £50 raised will go to Restless Development. The second £50 raised will go to either Restless Development or an existing/chosen school charity. Anything raised over £100 will be donated to Restless Development as the organising charity.
