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.
This series of 5k fun runs is for children of all ages and whether you choose to walk, run or push the buggy around the course your family is sure to have a great day out.
Make sure you spot the 'field of fresh' in the last 500m of the course, it will have inflatables in the shape of salad items to tackle including a 'meetball' ball pit for all of the kids...and big kids out there! On the day there will also be face-painting, bouncy castles and lots of other free activities.
All of the money raised will be donated to the Heart Research UK and SUBWAY® Healthy Heart Grants scheme, this is designed to help fund heart health initiatives in your area
