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

Fun Runs Near Me

We list lots of running events that are fun, take a look below here to find a fun run near you. Some of our popular searches are for: Gung-ho!Knowle Fun Run | Great Midlands Fun Run | 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.

Kids Course

  • 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 JustGiving page as part of registration.

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.
