The Bolt - Kids and Junior Race
The Bolt 2016 is moving to The Loseley Estate due to the proposed new building works at Alice Holt. The Loseley Estate will be a change but for the better! With exclusive land to run on and ample parking right next to the start, this will be a new and exciting chapter in The Bolt’s history!
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.
Once again we’re working with GUTS Fighting Bowel Cancer and BMI Mount Alvernia on this event, to raise as much funds as possible to improve screening facilities and treatment opportunities for cancer patients at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. As the entry fee only pays for this family and spectator friendly event, we ask that everyone who takes part do their bit and raise as much as possible for GUTS.
Donations will be accepted on the entry page. There is also a Total Giving page to make your fundraising easier. Please click HERE to start.
