The Little Welly Obstacle Course & Festival

The Little Welly ‘Goes Wild’ is an outdoor event for children and their families. It all began with our Henley event in 2014 and we are now proud to run the UK’s biggest obstacle courses for children. 

At the heart of the event is an obstacle course with more than 30 challenges over a 3 -5 km route including the foam run, climbing walls, the ball cage and our personal favourites, the big slide and the foam pit!. 

But this is not just an obstacle course; the festival part of the event is all about getting children outdoors, active and taking on new challenges and experiences. They can bounce on the trampolines, ride the ponies, try the caving challenge, scale the climbing wall, enjoy family games and so much more. With all the energy being expended, there are plenty of options to refuel with tasty food and drink stalls. There's also live music on the stage all day and 2020 will see some new and exciting shows. 

Please note additional charges apply for some of the activities.

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
